Meditation is often approached timidly because of its perceived difficultness and complexity. While many meditators boast taking a step back from their thoughts and clearing their mind, Metta meditation takes a completely different approach. In a sense, it’s a gratitude meditation, but even more than that, it’s a kindness practice, in which you send positive vibes to yourself and others. Metta Meditation can be as long or as short as you want it to be. Even just 5 minutes before bed is a great practice.
