You a bad bitch and your friends bad too…so why ya’ll not meditating???
Did you know we are one of the most stressed out generations ever? Longer working days, on our phones 24/7, and the constant strive for perfection. That’s enough to make anybody stressed and in need of a meditation session.
But meditation seems stressful in and of itself? You mean you want me to sit still and be quiet? No worries boo. I gotchu! Here’s some tips to get you started.
Get comfortable—the last thing you want to do is be mid meditation and need to adjust. So start lying down or sitting down with the feet firmly planted on the floor.
Clean up—a cluttered space is a cluttered mind. Try to dedicate one small, clean, decluttered space to your meditation practice.
Crawl before you walk—start with 2-3 minutes and then gradually increase to 5 minutes, then 7, then 10. It doesn’t matter how long you sit, as long as you start somewhere.
It’s all about the breath—Focus on the breath. The key to getting your mind to quiet down a little is to focus on the breath. Count your inhales (a slow count of 4 or 5). Then count your exhales (an even slower count of 6 or 7). And as your mind starts to wander, go back to focusing on the breath.
Take a class—there are apps and classes for that! At the end of Slow Flow Thursdays we do a guided meditation. If you’re still skipping Thursday classes, you’re seriously missing out. But if you can’t make it to class there are tons on online guided meditations. Like the one I created for you below. Enjoy and always know that the baddest bitch in me honors the baddest bitch in you! Namaste.
