Meditation is Medicine

Stress can ultimately take over your world if you let it. It throws off our plans and leaves us restless. Good news is, meditation can completely turn things around!

Why Meditation?
Meditation is essential. Whether you choose to have a session in the morning or night before you sleep. Finding quite will keep you energized through the day and allows a peaceful nights’ sleep. Meditation can help ease stress and any bad tension that’s been worked up through the week. Stress can lead to health problems and tear apart your mental stability. To keep this under control, you must learn to spend quality time with yourself.

If you choose to meditate in the morning, pick a perfect time to set your alarm. As adults, we all have busy schedules, and it’s important to jot out our day. Choose a time that won’t have you up too early but provides enough time to get a full session in. Wake up feeling thankful, and bring in positive vibes for the day by speaking good things into existence. Say you will have a great day, good sales, and everything will fall into place accordingly. Control your breathing. Play peaceful music. It also helps if you have a daily devotional or a motivational book you can spend a few minutes reading. This will pump up your day and have you ready for any challenges you may face.
Meditating at night works just as well. Through the day, you can keep in your notes things that frustrate you and any anger you may feel. When you get back home, settle in after dinner, or finish tucking the kids in, go back to these notes. Reflect on them and find out where your source of anger is coming from and surrender it during your meditation.

Meditation provides relaxation and time for reflection. Making an effort to improve our energy teaches us to stay positive and allows us time to focus.
