Meditate To Be Your Best Self

In this video, Olivia Rosewood teaches how to meditate to be your best self. She instructs us on how to use mindfulness meditation to watch our thoughts.

She teaches us to watch our thoughts, observe them, and let them go – like clouds drifting across the sky. We are not to get involved with our thoughts during meditation.

Olivia is an author, yoga and meditation teacher, and a mom. She writes for the Huffington Post and has traveled extensively with Eckhart Tolle.
