thanks for your comment on my treats and rewards blog. I am very much beginning with meditation, and often roll it into my yoga sessions, but I am definitely seeing its benefits. A calm and purposeful approach to life is more likely to bring you down the path you choose, rather than whatever is the most traveled or easiest route at the time.
