Every Day Mediation With RZA- Acknowledging Mental Well Being

Starting out on a positive note…Make Change

If ever anyone needed an extra ‘push’ to give meditation a try, this is a great reason to give it a try, at least in my opinion. From the Wu Tang comes “Everyday Meditation with the RZA” with hopes of getting more people in the Black community to recognize mental and emotional health and learn healthy ways to cope, via these short meditations.

Meditation is an ancient practice that show real results in people who participate. For more information on that, please click the following links to learn:

1) 7 ways meditation can help you reduce and manage stress
2) What Web MD says about meditation and the impact it has on stress
And a quote from link 2:

Meditation is a simple technique that, if practiced for as few as 10 minutes each day, can help you control stress, decrease anxiety, improve cardiovascular health, and achieve a greater capacity for relaxation.” FURTHER ALONG, IT NOTES,
“The technique has gained acceptance by physicians and therapists worldwide as a means of relieving symptoms of conditions ranging from cancer to AIDS.”

SO with that in mind, please check out what is being created, or find another meditation source…
