As I was winding down for bed tonight, I realized I forgot to post a Wellness Wednesday tip. Where did the day go? Since I always meditate before bed, that is my Wellness Wednesday tip. Try meditation, add it to your daily life. It doesn't require a lot of time, special training, or special positions or music. Stop, turn everything off, close your eyes and just enjoy the quiet for a few minutes. Focus own the breath, slowly inhaling through the nose, and exhaling through the nose. Clear your head of your to-do lists, and just enjoy the peace. Set a timer if that helps, 5-7-10min, especially if you feel like you'll keep opening your eyes to look at the time. Remember that meditation is a practice... It takes time, and no one is perfect. Some days are great, some leave a little more to be desired. But just try it, I think you'll really enjoy the time without emails, phone calls, social media, and TV. Meditation can be any time of day, and just about anywhere... So, this Wednesday, give meditation a try. I am signing off, to continue my bedtime routine, and enjoy my own meditation practice! Good night, and stay well my friends!
