Daily meditation is a powerful habit that requires nothing but a few moments of your time. The practice of staying present and mindful can have profound benefits on both your physical and mental health.
Stress reduction is one of the most common reasons people meditate, but it can also help control anxiety, promote emotional health, enhance self-awareness and increase your attention span. The key thing to note about meditation is that we experience even greater benefits when we repeat the practice frequently and consistently. That’s why meditation is a non-negotiable in our list of 7 healthy habits.
In this particular meditation, Laurentine will guide you through a meditation to bring you into a place of gratitude. In 10 minutes, you’ll go through the motions to calm the mind, find stillness and finish feeling prepared to handle the day with grace and an open heart.
This meditation is best practiced in the morning to help you set the tone of the day. But if you’re running a different schedule, this can be done at any time.
