So there are some things we all know we should do. Eat your vegetables, get plenty of fresh air, don’t stress (too much) just to name a few. One thing that has cropped up for me recently is the importance of meditation. Just a couple of minutes a day can really make a difference to how you feel and how you respond to the situations life throws at you.
“You can’t change your experiences but you can change your experiences of your experiences”
This quote really resonates with me because often we feel reluctant to do something, and then look back on it and realise we really enjoyed it. If we live in the moment (which meditation helps us to do) then we enjoy these experiences whilst we are doing them.
So today I challenge you to join me on my 30 day meditation journey. Only 5 minutes per day (everyone has 5 minutes right?!?) just to sit quietly and focus on your breath, in out in out in that beautiful rhythm that keeps us alive. If you feel like it acknowledge what you are grateful for – pick one trait (for me it’s intelligence) and really be thankful for it and everything it has brought you. Or you could imagine a golden light flowing through your body.
I hope you enjoy this challenge and let me know how you get on, by the end of the month I’m sure we will all be feeling calm, centred and beautiful
