Good Evening and Happy Weekend!
Today, I want to talk about Meditation.
Yes, I am a yogi. And yes, I feel that adding a meditation practice to your daily life is important because it:
- Reduces Stress
- Increases Immunity
- Lowers Blood Pressure
- Promotes a sense of Peace and Calm
I also think it makes people Happier and Healthier!
But, I find there is a misconception that meditation is just about sitting in lotus pose for an hour or for as long as you can possibly stand it.
The good news, is that you can add a simple meditation into your daily life in a mere MINUTE. Yes, that is right!
Meditation is all about becoming centered and calm but it does not have to take a long time.
In this day and age, we are surrounded by the hustle and bustle of a fast-paced work world and technology. No matter how hard we try, the stress just seems to creep in from trying to keep up with everything.
If you’re the kind of person who’s got a little more stress than you’d like (and, honestly, who doesn’t feel that way, sometimes?), you’ve gotta try this one-minute meditation.
This quick meditation will help you to center yourself and find some inner peace amidst the chaos of everyday life. Not only that, but it will help you to reduce inflammation in the body and decrease the toxic load on your organs.
Let me introduce you to the One Minute Meditation
To do the one-minute meditation, breathe in slowly for 15 seconds, then exhale slowly for 15 seconds. Then repeat.
That’s it. It’s really that simple.
If you’d like to change it up, you can breathe in one nostril and exhale out the other, switching the nostrils for inhalation and exhalation on the second round. You could also play around with how long you breathe in for and how long you breathe out for. The longer the inhalation, the more energy you will have. The longer the exhalation, the more relaxed you will feel.
Experiment, and see what works for you.
Give it a try today and let me know how you feel.
In Healthy and Happiness
