Hello, lovelies! We've exfoliated, moisturized, and unmasked our faces. Now it's time to give that beautiful brain of yours a bit of TLC!
Don't roll your eyes and say “I don’t have the time,” or “Meditation isn't for me.” Let's face it, if you've got time for that extra episode on Netflix (come on, we've all been there), you’ve got time for meditation. No excuses, it's about balance, babes!
Whether you're a buzzing busy bee or a chilled-out koala, here's a no-fuss and purse-friendly meditation exercise to sow those seeds of serenity. After all, why should our bodies have all the fun?
This isn't about finding a hidden chocolate stash (although wouldn't that be great?), but finding a quiet corner in your house where you won't be disturbed.
This could be your favorite armchair, that sunny spot on the living room rug, or even hiding away in the laundry room if that's what it takes to escape the chaos.
And hey, if your sweet spot happens to be next to your secret candy stash, who are we to judge?
Dim the lights, light a candle, or if you're up for spending a dime, plug in a diffuser with a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil. Lavender, ylang-ylang, or chamomile are our go-to’s for ultimate Zen.
But remember, this isn't about creating a Pinterest-worthy meditation nook (though we wouldn't mind that). It's about carving out a little haven where you can truly relax.
Who needs an expensive spa day when you can create an oasis at home? Take that, overpriced wellness resorts!
Sit comfortably, close your eyes, and start paying attention to your breath. Notice the in-and-out rhythm, like the gentle ebb and flow of the ocean. Not controlling it, just observing.
If your mind starts to wander (and trust us, it will – contemplating dinner options, recalling embarrassing awkward moments, the works!), just guide it back to your breath.
Basically, we're talking about being a gentle bouncer at the club of your mind. Keep out the random thoughts, let in the good vibes.
Here's the fun part where you get to choose a positive affirmation or mantra. This could be anything from “I am powerful,” to “I am deserving of happiness,” or even “I make fabulous meatloaf.” Say it quietly in your mind, aligning it with your breath.
Keep it honest, keep it real, and keep it YOU. It's an affirmation, not a beauty pageant answer!
Start with just a quick easy five minutes and gradually increase it to 20 minutes each day. Let's be realistic, sometimes five minutes might be all you have, and that's perfectly okay!
Remind yourself, this isn't a race. There are no brownie points for meditating longer. The aim here is to enrich your soul and reduce that daily stress, not add another to-do to your list.
So, enjoy these minutes of peace, ladies. You've earned it!
There you have it, a simple and budget-friendly meditation routine that compliments your #SelfcareSunday. Combine this with your DIY face mask ritual, and you're not just polishing your outer glow, but also igniting the inner light.
There's nothing like being fabulous inside and out, right? Now, that's what we call a well-rounded self-care routine. And the best part? It's economical, empowering, and exclusively yours. Now, go on—meditate, shine, repeat!
