// Meditation Tips for Beginners:

3. Use mantras & affirmations to help you focus during meditation
4. Meditate on the go while driving, cooking, cleaning, showering, walking, etc. Use every activity as a meditation & mindfulness practice!
5. Listen to binaural beats
6. Listen to soothing meditation music

Sidenote: A couple technical difficulties in this video! Quick passing clouds (constant change in lighting) and my mic’s battery died in the middle without me realizing it! I had to put new batteries in and start where I thought I left off. Lol hope it wasn’t too distracting. Motto: Done is better than perfect.
