Episode Description

Have you ever been so stressed that you have difficulty focusing on one task, and your heart and mind races? Have you caught yourself pacing back and forth? With school being virtual for many, unemployment being high, and our plans being altered monthly, weekly, and sometimes even daily, anxiety and stress are affecting many people all over the world. It is at this time we look within ourselves and all around us and find our “calm place” or our “happy place”, somewhere that we can either physically go to or a place we can take our mind and thoughts too. Arjin Claire, Nihal Gill, and Diya Hituvalli provide the history and benefits of meditation. Arjin reads the two chapters, the Gift of Asking and the Gift of Surrender from Cynthia Brian’s award-winning book, Be the Star You Are! 99 gifts for Living, Loving, Laughing, and Learning to Make a Difference. Set aside 10 to 20 minutes per day to calm your mind through meditation. Before embarking on important undertakings, sit quietly.
