I’ve used meditation on and off for many years. When I developed breast cancer three years ago, I took a class at University of Davis Medical Center, in Sacramento, California and was introduced to Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR). This is a guided meditation where you contract one muscle group at a time and then you relax the muscle group moving throughout the body. The told us that research showed it reduced anxiety by 55% and reoccurrence by 77%.
Last November (2018) I committed myself to using PMR for 30 days. And I did it. It was great for relaxing, awareness and it also provided me with some extra energy.
Because of that experience I decided to research mediation some more so I could provide you, my readers, with valuable information that can help you if you decide to start mediating (which I highly recommend)
