One of many stuff you guys ask me about probably the most is MEDITATION.
And I completely get it. While you’re new to meditating it could actually appear a bit daunting, elusive, and similar to WTF do I do? I used to really feel the very same approach. The truth is, in case you instructed me a number of years in the past that I might be spending about half-hour meditating each morning (and generally at evening too) I’d say you had been batshit loopy.
After Melissa Wooden got here on the podcast, she impressed me to begin meditating. I used to be very resistant however she instructed me to simply attempt it. Since I at all times wish to be a guinea pig for you guys, I figured I’d do it for 70 days straight, and if it works- fab, I can encourage others to do it too. And if it doesn’t work- oh nicely, no less than I attempted it. I discovered it VERY exhausting at first. Like, 5 minutes felt like perpetually, however after 70 days, half-hour felt like 2 seconds. It’s wild.
Anyway, if there’s something that has considerably modified my life, it’s meditation.

It’s a kind of issues that you simply simply must attempt, however give it an excellent likelihood. Put it this manner, nothing detrimental will occur from simply getting began. If sitting in silence feels like a nightmare to you (LOL, I get it), then attempt habit-stacking. I do it on a regular basis and it would assist ease you into it.
Behavior-stacking for me means placing on a sheet masks, placing my legs up the wall, utilizing toe stretchers, a crystal eye masks, possibly some CBD from Pellequr, and I’ll even do it on my PEMF mat. Extra on that right here, however in case you’re I take advantage of HealthyLine and adore it (use code THESKINNY10GIFT without spending a dime delivery, 10% off and a enjoyable present).
One other factor I extremely advocate are some noise-canceling headphones. Whether or not you’re inside or outdoors, strolling or sitting nonetheless, there are noises. Noises = rise in cortisol. You bought the canines, the youngsters, the husband, the espresso machine, the lawnmower, you get it. These are my favourite and so they actually do the trick.
