Self-care practices like meditation, or just taking time to check in with yourself, go hand in hand with healthy living. How we connect with ourselves has a direct effect on our mood, stress level and overall feeling of happiness and contentment
Draw the mind to the breath as you take a big inhale, filling the belly, the ribs, and the chest. Pause at the top of the inhale and count to three.
Exhale slowly, imagining the breath leaving first from the chest, then the ribs, and the belly. Pause at the bottom of the exhale and count to three.
Repeat this 3 part deep breathing for fifteen breaths.
I like to finish my morning meditation by counting 10 things that I am grateful for each day. (I just count on my fingers!) Gratitude is the best attitude adjustment!
