I have been rallying the self-care flag since April. Like no other time in our lives, we need to focus on our well-being, or we will be swallowed by doubt and overwhelm. So, for August, I will continue to share a new tip that will enhance your self-care and bring you some peace. Midlife is not always the most secure time of our lives, but if we are intentional about taking care of our needs, it can be more comfortable.
So, what if you could create peace in your day on demand. I know it sounds a little woo woo, but with a little bit of planning, you can make it happen using meditation. “Meditation provides you with that quality “me time” that’s so key to refiling your cup at the end of the day. It’s not only me time in terms of being alone and being away from others but being away from your day to day thoughts.”
According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, “meditation is a mind and body practice that has a long history of use for increasing calmness and physical relaxation, improving psychological balance, coping with illness, and enhancing overall health and well-being.” You can create your own meditation by sitting in a quiet place, using a memory that helps you feel more confident, happy, or brings you peace. Focus on memory and breath. You can also use a meditation app like Headspace or Calm.
Meditation is something you can do whenever you feel stressed or overwhelmed. As with anything, meditation takes practice, so do not be upset if you cannot settle down on your first couple of tries. Acknowledge the thoughts you are having and keep practicing. Do not worry about being perfect; be intentional on spending this time with yourself.
With Peace and Love,
