A Simple Mood Booster
Published: 05/12/2013

Want to improve your mood? Consider meditation. The term "meditation" may seem intimidating, but boiled to its essence, meditation simply means focused attention. The object of that attention can be many different things – one’s thoughts, a phrase, a candle flame, breathing and so on. The value of meditation is less about learning to focus on a particular thing, and more about learning to focus. Because practicing meditation can contribute greatly to optimum emotional well-being, I recommend that you give it a try. Start by simply sitting still and practice keeping your attention on your breath – doing this for just 10minutes a day, every day allows you to begin the process of restructuring your mind in a way that will bring you greater contentment, serenity, comfort, and emotional resilience. My website,, has more information on improving your mood, including a meditation plan from expert Susan Piver. Consider joining to learn more.
