Day 36 of 365 day blog: Meditation

DSC_0279

Day 36 of my 365 day blog challenge! I am talking about MEDITATION today! I was thinking about this season that we are in and I think winter is the perfect season for meditation! The meaning of meditation is thinking deeply or focusing one’s mind for a period of time in silence. It can even be done with chanting or used just as a form of relaxation. As I look out the window and watch the snow softly falling down I think this is the perfect weather to cozy up with a hot cup of coffee or hot cocoa and think deeply! Winter gives us permission to slow down and think about things in general. Now I know there are a lot of people out there that do not slow down and spend most of their winter time outside, like those who work outside or those that live for snow like the snow skiers, snow boarders, snow shoers and cross country skiers. Even the snow lovers probably relish coming in from the cold and warming up by a fire or under some down blankets! I used to live in Alaska and I remember wanting to slow down in winter because our LONG days of sun and summer are exhausting! Hope you can carve some time out of your winter days to do some meditation!
