The best thing meditation has taught me is that I can get control of myself, my reactions, and even my mood any time that I want to. Depending on what level of panic I'm in it may take longer in some cases than others but it can still be done.
I have a few things on my mind these days that are causing stress and worry in my life and I can spiral so easily into anxiety but sitting and checking in with myself helps so much.
I have regularly found a great deal of peace (or motivation or self-confidence, etc) by using 4 minute meditations from @bexlife. If you struggle with knowing where to start that is a great place to begin.
Have you taken a few minutes to slow down and just follow your breathing and re-center yourself?
Sounds simple enough, but is harder than you think. Taking care of myself is just as important as taking care of my sons. My Dr’s visit the other day put it all in perspective. I’m thankful to be in good health, but I can take better care of myself. I fall short in this area. I skip meals, I don’t get the sleep my body needs, I’m hit or miss in the walking department and I never take vitamins. My Dr scolded me on that one, especially calcium. I fill everyone’s pill container in this house, but I don’t take vitamins. You see what’s wrong with this picture? No more! I am 40 and I want to be more fabulous and healthy than ever! It starts today, it starts NOW! #thisis40#selflove#imworthit#brandnewme#taketimeout#selfcare#thinksocial2018
