One Minute Meditation

One Minute Meditation

In this day and age, we are surrounded by the hustle and bustle of a fast-paced work world and technology. No matter how hard we try, the stress just seems to creep in from trying to keep up with everything.

If you’re the kind of person who’s got a little more stress than you’d like (and, honestly, who doesn’t feel that way, sometimes?), you’ve gotta try this one-minute meditation.

This quick meditation will help you to center yourself and find some inner peace amidst the chaos of everyday life. Not only that, but it will help you to reduce inflammation in the body and decrease the toxic load on your organs.

To do the one-minute meditation, breathe in slowly for 15 seconds, then exhale slowly for 15 seconds. Then repeat.

That’s it. It’s really that simple.

If you’d like to change it up, you can breathe in one nostril and exhale out the other, switching the nostrils for inhalation and exhalation on the second round. You could also play around with how long you breathe in for and how long you breathe out for. The longer the inhalation, the more energy you will have. The longer the exhalation, the more relaxed you will feel.

Experiment, and see what works for you

If you’ve been on Pinterest or Instagram for any amount of time, you’ve probably seen a decent number of green smoothie pictures floating around.

Why is that?

Because they’re so darn good for you!

Green smoothies are a great way to get fiber, vitamins, and minerals – all served up in one glass that you can take on the go!

Smoothies are[udesign_icon_font name=”fa fa-check-circle-o”] 

Chock full of vitamins, enzymes, and minerals

Easy to digest, which means optimal assimilation of the nutrients you need

Great for stabilizing blood sugar (you will see each smoothie here has a healthy fat, and fat is key for blood sugar stabilization)

A fabulous way to consume a variety of different fruits or vegetables at one time

Terrific for cleansing the body of toxicity

An easy way to add more fiber to your diet for optimal bowel function

When you add in a handful of greens to your smoothie, you can an extra dose of awesomeness in every serving!
