Week 27: Meditate for at least 10 Minutes Daily
When is the last time you meditated?
With the busy hustle of day-to-day activities, life can leave us feeling stressed, exhausted, disconnected, and overwhelmed.
Sometimes it seems there’s just not enough time in the day to get everything done, and it can really begin to take a toll on our health and mental state.
So how do you fit in an extra 10 minutes for meditation? That seems crazy right?! It’s NOT!
Finding 10-15 minutes can actually help give you more time by reducing your stress levels and allow you to focus more on the task at hand.
Meditation has also been shown to improve your immune system, brain health, decrease anxiety, improve self-esteem, improve mental strength, and contribute to longevity.
Meditation has the potential to change your life!
Meditating can help switch your mind from negativity to positivity, from unhappy to happy, and from unsettled to peaceful.
If you’re not sure how to meditate, there are some wonderful guided meditations that can walk you step-by-step through the entire process.
If you’ve tried meditation in the past and had trouble calming your mind- that’s totally normal.
The key, like anything else, is consistency. It takes practice and commitment to see the benefits. However it’s amazing what you can accomplish in just 5-10 minutes a day.
