Wondering what people are saying about the Open Prep Guide? Here are some of the comments:

As for meditation, women are multi-taskers by nature, so our minds race and think of all the things we could be/should be doing as we attempt to sit still and contemplate. So it can be absolutely maddening to start a meditation practice that requires us to sit still and clear our minds--it feels so unnatural!!! That said, the benefits of meditation are remarkable when u really dig into it and it's a practice worthy of developing over time (read up on the benefits of it to see how it will serve you so you don't have the internal conflict of wanting to "get stuff done").
I want to note that the intent of meditating is really important. If you use meditation to escape your perceived stresses, you'll simply attract more chaos. If you use meditation to observe your own thoughts and mind as a starting point, then you are on the right track. Think of it like "noticing" in Life Coaching. You sit and notice your own thoughts.
When I started meditating my noisy brain wouldn't shut up and it was SO frustrating! What I found helpful to anchor myself, at the recommendation of a friend, was a guided meditation. The beautiful thing about the guided meditation is that the guide on the audio recording said: "allow whatever comes up in your mind to come up. Don't judge it or yourself for your thoughts." That got me big time b/c I had been judging myself for even having thoughts during a meditation b/c I had the impression that my mind was “suppose to” be clear. Anyway, a guided meditation can help you start of just like a coach helps a client know what to do in a gym. SoundsTrue.com has some good ones you can download and they have a preview, so u can listen to a bit and see what resonates.
