Think meditation needs to involve hours of silence, a giant gong or incomprehensible Sanskrit chanting? Think again! The benefits of even five minutes of daily meditation are endless, from lowering blood pressure to fighting inflammation and depression. Meditation is not some one-size-fits-all practice; rather, it’s a lifestyle choice that anyone can make and skew to fit into the busiest of days. YogaWorks‘ Birgitte Kristen knows that sometimes we only have a few mindful minutes to sit and breathe, so she put together a meditation on gratitude and appreciation specifically for TCM readers on the go. You’ll need some sort of blanket or cushion, a few spare minutes away from the hubbub of daily life, and most importantly, an attitude of gratitude!
