Meditation is defined as the act of engaging "in mental exercise (such as concentration on one's breathing or repetition of a mantra) for the purpose of reaching a heightened level of awareness." And, it is one of the most beneficial (and free) tools to help you create positive change in your life. I know, that sounds like a lofty goal, but look at the evidence from the Mayo Clinic alone:
February was a hard month for me, so I decided to make the month of March one where I made my well-being a priority.

Today I'd like to share some of those lessons and pass along a few examples so you can start this yourself.
The concept of "clustering" was introduced to me by one of my very own authors: Steven Griffith. (Quick FYI: In case you didn't know, I'm an Editor at a business book publisher.) Steven's brand new book, The Time Cleanse, is in stores this week and it's where I first learned about a concept that has completely transformed the way I work, which I'd like to tell you about today.
