I know that your life can be hectic with work and family but try and make time to meditate. There are so many different ways to meditate. Find one that works for you. Here are a few tips.
It can be good to set a timer whilst meditating, that way you won't be distracted by thoughts of time. Whenever a thought comes along, let it come and go, just like a wave. Be the observer of your thoughts rather then being your thoughts. If lack of time is stopping you from meditation, remember that you can always stsart with as little as two minutes. You can be anywhere; sitting, standing or lying down. Just focus on the here and now and on your breathing. Become present.

What makes you happy? Small or big. I love watching children play. They live so in the moment and love life in a way most of us grown ups have lost. Think like a child! Even when you need to do the boring stuff. How can you make it more fun? One of my favourite things to do whilst I'm cooking dinner is to put on some great music, poor myself a glas of wine and dans and sing whilst I cook. Music can be good for calming you down and making the task at hand more fun. Music works for me whilst tidying up as well. Always ask yourself; How can I make this fun?
Write down a list of things you love to do. When you're having a bad or boring day then look at the list and do at least one of those things. Here are some of mine.
