Meditation to ease your midweek madness

Stress!!!

It’s nearly unavoidable in this modern-day, ADD lifestyle we all lead. Most of us never allow ourselves a moment to breathe. And that affects us in so many ways: It affects how we eat (stress eating!), how we digest, how our cells manage nutrients and contributes to aging, causes high blood pressure – among so many other potentially harmful maladies. So take a moment today and give yourself the green light to relax and regain control over your life.

And if one day isn’t enough for you, Oprah and Deepak Chopra are conducting another 21-day, free meditation sequence (https://chopracentermeditation.com/). It is only day three, and meditations are available for up to five days after they are initially posted. Twenty-one days is a substantial amount of days to kick back and rediscover your core of peace and healing.

Namaste, and may you find stillness, peace, and joy in your day today!

Today’s blog from the heart

Who is more important to you than, well, you?

Valentine’s Day always involves matters of the heart, and today you might try thinking about your own heart health. But are you a commit-a-phobe, afraid to make that promise to yourself to treat yourself well? Put yourself first? Check in with yourself, and make sure that you’re doing ok? Give yourself a pep talk when you’re feeling down or stressed out? Do goofy things to make yourself laugh? To be absolutely honest with yourself? To take some quality time for yourself, make yourself a nice, healthy dinner, go for and enjoy a nice, long walk, and then take yourself to bed afterward for much needed loving rest?

You may laugh, but you may also realize that you probably don’t do this as often as you should for yourself as you would for any other relationship.

As poetic as it is, February has been deemed Heart Health Awareness Month and nothing could be closer to your – well – heart, right? Your health, life longevity, and happiness is most likely the closest to the hearts of all who love you. So, just remember that you’re not alone if you want to start making changes.

And we all have changes of heart in regards to our current lifestyle for different reasons. You may be overweight and want to eat better. You may have an illness or three that makes you realize you cannot continue on the path that you’re on. You may have heart disease, high blood pressure, or stroke in your family and want to head it off at the pass. Whatever your reason, it’s never too late.

What is the heart, though? Here is a quick video that gives you a basic understanding of the work it does for you, every second, minute, hour, and day of your life:
Amazing, huh?

 

And major causes for heart ailments can stem from three basic concepts:
  • Inactivity
  • High fat/cholesterol/salt diets
  • Stress

If any of that sounds familiar, than you may want to pick one of those and start taking baby steps to wellness. How?

  • Take a 10-minute walk every day.
  • Eat a new vegetable you’ve never made or heard of for dinner one meal a day.
  • Take 5 to 10 minutes every day to just sit quietly without the radio, TV, or distractions and just breath as deeply as you can, clearing the cobwebs of yesterday’s regrets, today’s jitters, and tomorrow’s fears.

Feeling better already, aren’t you?

Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, and be good to yourself and your heart today. Because you deserve it.

Are you a woman, and have heart disease, stroke, or high blood pressure in your family? Contact me, Lindsey, at platefulofsoulLLC@gmail.com to find out how you can start your path to wellness. All women looking to start a heart-healthy lifestyle will get a discount on services for the month of February.
