"The goal of meditation isn't to control your thoughts, it's to stop letting them control you. "
As we are in a few months into this pandemic, everyone has been more stressed out and anxious. Whether we are worried about finances, paranoid about contracting COVID 19 or struggling with dealing with finding our new normal, we can all use a little zen in our life. Meditation could be the calm to your chaos. I challenge you to join me in a meditation challenge! I know I know, it feels like we can't possibly take on more than we already have right now; but trust me, I promise this will help. The answer to all of this chaos is to focus within and focus on what we can control...our thoughts. Meditation is an integral part of controlling your inner peace and finding your zen. Any behavior that is done 21 days in a row becomes a habit.
Now, before you make any excuses, hear me out. Meditation can be done anywhere and at anytime! There is no perfect way to meditate. In fact, mediation is a practice, the more you do it the easier it becomes. Some people like to create a zen space (candles, crystals, and cushions); while others go into nature and connect to Mother Earth. Is it your first time meditating or have you struggled with being consistent with your practice, you can benefit from this meditation challenge. And my girl, Gabrielle Bernstein, is here to make your meditation easy peasy for you. All you need is 10 minutes a day. When you sign up for this challenge, you will receive daily emails with directions on your daily meditation and an audio recording. I am on day 3 and already have noticed how dedicating 10 minutes of my day have improved my sleep and mood. Now, who doesn't want that? Let's find our zen together!
