Meditation is Under Valued!

Meditation

 

 

 

 

 

Have you tried meditation and didn’t make the commitment to do it daily?  I know I am like this as well.

Emma is going through heightened anxiety at the moment and it is extremely challenging on us all.  It is breaking our heart to watch her go through it and all I want to do is fix it.  For me personally, it is stirring up my anxiety as I feel that somehow I have caused it.  There is also the concern that this is what Emma will go through for the rest of her life.

So I have set myself the task of meditating every night before I go to bed.  I listen to Ken Davis music and it goes for 10 minutes.  I say in my head “I want to be calm (in breath) I want the world to be calm (out breath).

I have been doing this for a week and already I am feeling calmer especially when helping move through her anxiety.  During the day when I feel my anxiety starting I concentrate on my breathing and have to say by bringing my thoughts back to my breathe has a massive effect on my well being.

I am being patient with the girls and they are also calmer as a result.  I would recommend you to at least do a week and see an improvement in your life.

 

A Way To Get Healthier and Feel Better

In this weeks Sunday Herald-Sun they had an article about ways you can make yourself healthier in simply 10 minutes. As mums and dads we need to look after ourselves so that we are operating at optimal best for our children.  So see what you can do to improve your quality of life.

Workout in the TV breaks

Instead of watching TV why not use the ad breaks to do star jumps, sit ups, push ups, running on the spot to keep our body moving.

Write a meal plan

Work out ahead your meal plans and write down what you eat to make sure you choose healthy options.

Calm down

Take time daily to meditate (one activity I love to do at the start of the day and at the end of the day)

Make small gestures

Rather than relying on overt displays of affection, it was small gestures like saying thank you, serving cups of teas in bed that can keep a couple together.

Exercise

Exercising is extremely important for everyone’s health. But it is important that you do exercise that you enjoy as if you do not enjoy it then you will not do it.

Take longer to prepare dinner

So that you can put some vegetables away for during the day as easy snacks.
