You know you 'need' to meditate - because you've been told to - or maybe you want to learn to meditate but find it too difficult to establish a meditation practice. The answer you're looking for is affirmations, which work like mini meditations: your attention can be focused on the affirmation for a short period of time and give your brain a chance to let go of extraneous thoughts. You can repeat affirmations throughout the day for little moments of calm.
The affirmations in TODAY I WILL... can help you develop mindfulness in a busy world, in just a few short minutes a day. They also provide moments of inspiration to uplift your everyday life.
Each affirmation encourages you to make simple changes to daily routines and ways of thinking. The practical purpose, wisdom and joy associated with each affirmation are explained to you as you are guided towards your calm and creative nature.

Question: What inspired you to write Today I Will?
Carmen Warrington: I was in a year of transition and endings and one frustrated morning I rather crossly called out to the universe "What am I supposed to be doing with my life?". Next minute the ideas came pouring in and pretty soon, I had a first draft of the book. There's a saying -you teach what you need to learn', so I like to think that this book is a gentle reminder for me as well as for the readers.
