I view meditation as a way to invest time in you and you alone each day. We commit ourselves to many activities every day. Many of these activities likely are commitments to other people. Find a place that is relatively quiet to meditate and devote 10 or 15 minutes to meditation. Make it work for you. You can buy tapes, CDs, written affirmations, or other material to help you meditate. Alternatively, you can repeat positive statements in your head, sing a song to yourself or visualize a peaceful place. Try different methods and find what works for you. Meditation is a powerful depression treatment tool, and you will see results in a short time. You can use this virtually anywhere, anytime. Empower yourself and share with others if you've had success using meditation for depression.
