It was 19 years ago that I learned to meditate (Transcendental Meditation) and began a daily meditation practice of 20 minutes twice a day. The first thing I noticed was how much calmer I felt in my daily activity; I had more energy and I felt more creative. A year on, whilst a lot continued to go on around me, I felt an inner calm and significantly more mental clarity. I finally got the phrase "Don't sweat the small stuff."
It was therefore no surprise to me that five years later I had started my own natural skincare company Sodashi, and meditation had become a fundamental part of the business.
