1 minute of your time = a calm, radiant, healthy you

meditatingSince New Year’s eve I vowed to make time daily to ‘look within’ and stay connected with myself. I was listening to the Dalai Lama speak about health and wellness and he kept repeating, ‘calm mind=healthy body”. So although I usually focus my blogs on food and how it relates to health, He clearly reminded me with his strong message that body mind and spirit are very connected. So today commit to a 5 Minute Meditation. I have made it easy, so no excuses!

Find the time today to make your mind calm and a healthy body will ensue…if 5 minutes feels daunting give yourself one minute. Just one minute-you can do it! Let me know how it goes? If it feels delicious to you, please share and pay this message forward to someone you love….

1-5 Minute Meditation

Stop.

Sit stand or lay down in a comfy position.

Set your cell phone timer for 1-5 minutes.

Close your eyes.

Take a nice deep breath.

Breathe

Breathe

If your mind wanders, that is ok, when you catch it, just relax and go back to breathing

Enjoy!
