We asked community members if they meditated and how it helped them. Here is a selection of their answers from our 30-Second Survey. (Do you meditate? Share your own insights!).

“It allows me to stay present and deal with only the issues before more right now, rather than getting overwhelmed by all the issues I am dealing with.”

“Meditation helps me reduce stress and makes me feel more grounded. When I’m feeling stressed, it is the best thing I can do to calm my body and clear my mind.”

“It helps me think clearly and calmly about my worries for my family member.”

“It keeps me connected with the wider universe and God.”

“I definitely sleep better and it calms me.”

“Meditation calms my thoughts and help me better communicate.”

“It helps me with focusing.”

“It centers me. I take some time in morning and focus on my breathing for 2 minutes and continue throughout the day as needed.”
