I completed my November challenge and I’m continuing it for as long as I need (maybe the rest of my life)… Have you ever meditated? If not, than you are missing out on an amazing opportunity to get to know yourself a little more from within. I just love the way it helps me sleep a little better at night because I have been doing my meditation right before I go to bed. I feel lighter and it allows me to fall asleep within just a few minutes of putting my head on the pillow. I can honestly say I am a better person when I meditate because I can breathe a little bit easier, without any distractions. Taking your thoughts beyond your daily tasks, worries, hopes, dreams, to another place. Just to be still without anything clogging your mind. I think the breathing is probably the most important part of my meditation because that’s how I’m able to relax so much. I take extra long exhalations to calm my body down. And if you were trying to wake your body it would be best to take longer inhalations. Even if you don’t think you can do this every day, I think it’s best if you at least attempt to do it once a week to give your mind a break. Another tip I have, if you enjoy music, I love the Pandora station: Calm Meditation. It has some beautiful music from all over the world and it really brings a nice relaxing, calm feeling to your mediation or yoga practice. Let me know if you have questions!
