It brings to mind a peaceful person sitting cross-legged, hands folded in the lap or fingers and thumb touching while resting on the knees. You can almost hear monks chanting and a Tibetan singing bowl in the background.

What actually happens when a lot of us attempt to meditate? The kids walk in. The dog scratches at the door. The text tone goes off on your phone. Grrr….

Building a practice—whether it be a yoga practice, an exercise regimen, a healthier diet or a mediation practice takes work. But anyone can start with just a few minutes a day.

Starting March 20th, we will be doing a Happiness Meditation Challenge together. We will send out daily emails with tips and suggestions along with support. Interested? Have you always wanted to commit to a practice? Are you a regular meditator and just want to be a part of this?

Sign up below and join us and others in our Tattooed Buddha Community! Just 7 days…10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes at night.
