What Women are saying

I feel so alert!

Before I started my meditation practice, I really had no awareness around how much of my day was spent on ‘auto-pilot’ – doing one thing, while my mind was miles away. I feel so much more alert and engaged now that I’m able to focus on the present moment. I’ve noticed that I also make fewer mistakes…maybe that’s because I’m actually paying attention!

I’m happier now

For me, meditation wasn’t a magic pill that automatically fixed everything, but I stuck with it. After the first few months, I started to notice subtle changes, I didn’t get triggered as easily as I used to, I felt calmer and more resilient to stress. I noticed that I was becoming more patient with my kids and husband and felt less anger.

I’m learning to say no

As a workaholic, I’ve never been able to say no and have always had really poor boundaries. I’d over-commit, then get stressed-out and overwhelmed. This was a recurring pattern in my life. Thankfully, my meditation practice has helped me to slow down and recognize the things that really matter to me in my life. I feel like I understand myself better and am working at building healthy boundaries.
