“Smile, breathe and go slowly.”~Thích Nhất Hạnh


Perhaps you’ve wanted to mediate to calm your mind but don’t know much about it, or how it helps. If so, you’re not alone.

Meditating is deceptively simple, or excruciatingly difficult, depending on who you ask.

Common questions include: Do I need training? How do I sit? What do I think about (basically, nothing), Where do I do it? How long does it take? What are the signs it’s working? And on and on…

I created a basic introduction video to mediation because March is A Month of Meditation & Mindfulness at Team Happy. Designed for the beginner, the focus is on simplicity around forming a daily meditation habit. Here’s a list of what is discussed:


1. What is meditation

2. Where to mediate

3. How to sit

4. How much time

5. What to focus on

6. How to breathe

7. How to focus your breath

8. How to refocus your thoughts
