Meditate, even a little

We cannot really talk about calming down and developing emotional balance without mentioning meditation. So today's practice to develop equanimity is: Learn to meditate, even just a little.

Meditation means so many different things to different people and it is such a deep topic that we won't get into details here, but the essence of meditation is training your mind and your attention, disentangling it from thoughts and emotions and observing one's experience as it happens.

Taking just a few minutes a day to become silence, look inward and tune into what is happening in our internal world can foster peace of mind and the perspective needed for equanimity.

Meditation works best if it is consistently practiced in small doses over time. Think of it like a vitamin and not a Tylenol. Just like a vitamin can increase physical wellbeing and immunity over time, meditation gradually increases emotional wellbeing and stamina.

Meditation practiced consistently over time reprograms our brains to make them less reactive. It increases our capacity to deal with stress and recognize triggers without acting on the triggers.

Meditation is one of those things that really does need to be practiced and experienced rather than talked about.

So go ahead, take two or three minutes to pause and get in touch with what is going on inside. Simply bring your attention to the breadth and when you notice your breadth wandering, bring it back to your breadth. If your attention wanders a hundred times, gently and firmly bring it back a hundred times. No drama or judgment.

It really is as simple as that.
