We have heard it every holiday season. Be present. Don’t worry about presents, worry about being present. Focus on family and not things. What do you do each day, and especially around the holidays to stay grounded, mindful, and calm?
Accordingly to Nutrition Stripped, "If meditating seems too “hippy” or discovering your spirituality is new to you, or “freaks you out” as some say, take it slow. Mediation doesn’t have to be spiritual for you at all, it can be a means to rest your mind and hey, science has shown the powerful effects of mediation on our brain health, stress management, and general wellbeing. "
I have practiced consistent yoga and meditation since 2012 and I can tell you first hand it is easy to do.
It is also really easy not to do.
I also have learned that every person is different for how we deal with stress, but there is so many overwhelming positive studies around mediation and yoga, it makes it hard to ignore.
I challenge you to start.
Start with 5 minutes of mindful quietness before you jump out of bed.
Oh, you can’t do that? Try attending a yoga class, even for 30 minutes.
Hmmmmmm……..still not grabbing your attention?
I think I have the meditation for you!
