One of the most important things we can do to learn to achieve more presence in our lives and enter into a zen state of mind, is to empty our minds. Sometimes that is easier said than done.
However, the greatest tool at your disposal is writing.
Your ability to express yourself and get your thoughts out onto paper is absolutely incredibly powerful and your greatest weapon in combatting the “monkey-mind”.
While the pen and paper are still powerful, now you have so many other options to get your thoughts out. One of those ways is blogging, and this is the choice for many people in the modern digital age. Its an excellent way to relieve an overloaded mind, but also put your thoughts out there into the world for others to connect with and respond to.
This blog, for example, allows for challenging thoughts around the Tao, finding zen and present moment living and attracts readers that are interested in engaging in those topics, but it is also an outlet for our writers to release their inner brain chatter.
So, one the best ways for you to get started with a blog is to use WordPress. For the most part WordPress is the easiest tool to create a great looking website at very little cost, and the support and development community is superior to everything else out there.
For beginners, we recommend a wordpress Tutorial site like WPAcademy which has a host of plugins reviews, video lessons and much more. it makes getting started a cinch, and using it will ensure that you’ll be up and running in no time at all.
