Time is our most precious commodity, yet we frequently spend it frivolously. If you were allotted $24 at the beginning of everyday and told you had to use the money to buy time throughout your day at a rate of one dollar per hour, how would you spend it? Eight dollars for eight good hours of sleep seems like a bargain. Because of the necessity, another $8 for eight hours of work would begrudgingly be forked over. As the money dwindled, however, it would get harder to cough-up a few bucks for things like surfing the net, getting lost in YouTube videos and posting on Facebook. Yet, that is where our precious extra-time often goes.
What if you knew that just ten cents a day, or $3 a month, could buy you amazing health and wellness related benefits like:
The aforementioned are just a few of the positive side-effects that result from a practice of merely ten minutes of meditation a day. From a cost-benefit analysis, meditation is a no-brainer.
