I am new to meditation and mindfulness and there were definitely days when it was tough to complete the whole ten minutes. I was bored and frustrated – ‘I’m just sitting here! I could be doing so much more with my time!’. And that’s exactly why I needed to start. Somehow the guidance seemed to understand that while my experiences of starting we’re unique and special to me, they were not uncommon. The tone struck the right balance between encouragement, authority and understanding. It is hard to find the time to meditate, harder still some days to face it, but so worthwhile!
