I am one of those people who can't shut off thoughts, and thus, has found it a complete waste of time to consider meditation! However, that was before I found the following video. The time involved in meditating for a moment is completely do-able.
If you make it through a minute, or a moment, and want to embark on a more focused meditation program, come to the library where our materials on meditation are found in many formats:
Chödrön, Pema. How to Meditate [A Practical Guide to Making Friends with Your Mind]. [AB/CD 158.12 CHO]
Mindfulness & Meditation. [DVD 294.3 MIN]
Rosenthal, Norman E. Transcendence: Healing and Transformation through Transcendental Meditation. [158.125 ROS]
Simpkins, C. Alexander. Living Meditation: From to Principle to Practice. [291.4 SIM]
There's plenty more, just check our catalog using "meditation" in a subject search.
