If you do not know how to meditate, it is easy and a very productive way to advance your success and overall well-being. Just find yourself some time - 15-20 minutes when you can be away from disturbance. Find a comfortable place to sit. It is not needed but a timer can be useful.
So, take a seat. Take a few slow deep breaths to center yourself. Close your eyes and in your mind begin repeating the phrase "Aroot Perum Jothi" to yourself - in your mind. Just continue to repeat it easily. When your notice that your mind has wandered - you are thinking about something you need to do or just daydreaming - simply return to saying the mantra, "Aroot Perum Jothi" over and over again. You really can't do it wrong and you don't need to "try hard". Let it be a gentle process.
"Aroot Perum Jothi" - it can be translated as "I am the light of divine grace" and it works a little like an affirmation to put the mind on a positive track. Like so many things, the key is to do it. You don't need to "believe" in it - regardless it will change the functioning of your brain in positive ways, little by little each day. Just do it - the best time is 15-20 minutes before you have breakfast.
