It is a nice rainy day out here in the desert.
On days like this I like to enjoy a hot cup of tea some organic fruit and almond butter and relax and read a book.
Wake up you say! I have things to do. Ok ok.
However, do give yourself permission to have days to chill out and have some down time because your body will thank you later!
I wanted to share that going on this journey of transitioning to a primal life (paleo) has not only helped my body inside and out but it has also opened my mind and soul to heal along with my body. This has been a challenge as I have decades to heal from but I am telling you it is possible.
Did you know that you are amazing? Did you know you are capable of great things? Did you know that despite your mistakes that you are still awesome?
Well you are!
As moms, wives, business woman, sahm, (insert what resonates with you) we are constantly draining ourselves and forgetting to take that moment to show ourselves some self-love and self care. Remember to help others you need to put the oxygen mask on first and then help others.
I am at times guilty for running myself thin and I want to put effort into changing that!
As a result I am announcing my first 30 day challange and I will be doing it with you!
Are you ready?
The goal is to do some type of meditation daily. The time will depend on you. Do 2 minutes or 40 minutes or anything in between.
Feel free to comment your challenges, your successes, your favorite type of mediation and in 30 days I will let you know what impact it has had on me.
It may also be a good idea to journal some of what you are feeling prior and compare after 30 days to see if there is a difference for you.
Meditation is known to have amazing affects on the mind, body and soul and help with stress reduction and relaxation among so many other wonderful benefits! Let’s see what can happen in just 30 days!
Never mediated or do not know where to begin? Here are some suggestions of types of meditation:
Positive Affirmation Meditation
You can find so many free resources online but remember it can be as easy as laying in your bed before you get up and do some breathing. You can take one step up and put one hand on your heart and one on your stomach and do breathing (in through the nose our through the mouth)
Here are some free videos I listen to on my phone:
The above video is neither guided or instructed but i enjoy it with my breathing
Remember you do not need music, guidance or videos to meditate. You can take some time to just breath and rest your mind for a few minutes.
So let us begin our 30 days!
3/1/2017 is day one!
Sending love and positive energy your way!
