Meditation has many applications -- even if you are "leading a dog's life!" By experiencing one minute a day of mindfulness meditation some significant changes can occur in your life, because the effects begin to multiply as the one minute meditations become a more frequent part of your life. You will feel more calm, resilient, creative, clearer thinking, focused and peaceful without detatching yourself from liife or interfering with other actifvities. Motivation is not therapy, howeverl and it cannot serve as a substitute; but it still has many useful applications. For example,when combined with other applications, meditation can be helpful in the management of chronic pain.
Don't expect immediate results. The purpose of meditation is not to turn you into master overnight. Meditation works best when it is done for its own sake, without becoming attached to results for their own sake.
