NAMASTE: Calming My Mind With Meditation

Gabby Buff meditating

Recently I have turned to meditation again. Many years ago, I found it extremely calming but eventually got caught up in the rat race of life and began to see it as a time-waster. My thought process, “I could use the time I waste meditating, checking something off my to-do list, and I would then be calmer.”

When I began to pay attention to my patterns, I realized that by the end of the day, I had worked myself up into such a tailspin thinking about all of the things I was not able to check off my list that my productivity was minimal at the end of the day. To calm the chaos in my mind so that I could think clearly and maximize productivity, I decided to turn to meditation again.

Generally, when I meditate, I lie on my floor with my arms stretched over my head, my eyes closed, the lights off. At the same time, Alexa plays calm meditation music for 10 minutes.

I recently decided to give guided meditation a try with Namaste J and loved it! The guided meditation that Namaste J took us through was centered around reducing anxiety. I found this experience extremely calming, and, unlike my periods of self-meditation, my mind was not wandering as much!

Maturity has made me more health-conscious. I wholeheartedly believe that stress reduces your quality of life and can also kill you. Why not Namaste the hell out of stress!!!

Perfectly Imperfect but VERY PROUD WOMAN, MOM, LAWYER, and AUTHOR, but most importantly...LIFE LOVER! I laugh loud, I work hard, I play hard, I am adventurous, I am curious, I am driven, I have moments of deep insecurity, I am loving, I am vulnerable, I am explosive (not one of my finer qualities), I dance around my house alone, I am an awful perfectionist which makes my insecurity worse, I sing out loud in my car without any concern for whose watching, I have trust issues, I do not live through my children, I no longer try to force my children into the mold that I created so that I could feel validated as a mother, I am a risk-taker, I am guarded in my personal life, I am kind, I am grateful. I am so excited about the rest of my life!
