Best 5-minute Meditation to Relieve your from Stress

As a mom, one of the reasons we get stressed is not having enough time to do the things we need to. What if I tell you to that giving 5-minute of your busy day to meditate can relieve you from that stress?

Yes! Why not simply just get on with your day sans the STRESS??! Yes, It’s possible!

Feeling stressed, tired, or worn out? Don’t have time to attend yoga or don’t have a sitter for your little ones? No problem! This 5-minute meditation plan is exactly what you need to get your day back on track! Stress is normal. It happens to all of us! It’s just a matter of how you relieve that stress, and I’m here to give you a simple and effective way! 

1. Find a quiet place where distractions are nonexistent. For the next 5 minutes, your focus needs to be solely on the meditation.

2. Take a seat on the floor, bed, chair or couch. Cross your legs, leave them straight out, or lay down. The key is to not disrupt the meditation with movement. The most comfortable position for you is ideal. For the next 5 minutes, you will get lost in your meditation and movement would disrupt the tranquility. 

3. Select your background music (waterfalls or soft piano music is a great choice) and add a few drops of lemon and lavender essential oil to your diffuser. 

4. Set your timer to 5 minutes. That way, you don’t need to wonder when the 5 minutes are up- your timer will do that for you! 

5. Begin your meditation. Close your eyes and relax. Visualize the stress and tension exiting your body from your head to your toes! Clear your mind of all thoughts, focus on your breathing, and letting go. Make sure to keep your eyes closed for the entire meditation, just don’t fall asleep! Do this for 5 minutes until your timer goes off. 

6. After your meditation, slowly get up from your quiet spot and enjoy a glass of refreshing lemon water. You are renewed so freshen up! 

Meditation is the perfect tool to redirect your body and bring you back to the present. You can meditate for the first 5 minutes of your day, after a long days work, or during your lunch break. You can do this meditation on vacation, in the parking lot of your favorite store, or your work. As you become more familiar with your meditation, feel free to increase the time from 5 minutes to 10 or 15 minutes!

By spending 5 minutes redirecting your body and mind to ease stress, you are increasing your mental and emotional strength, determination, and drive. There’s a wonderful feeling about a mind and stress cleanse! The beauty is, as simple and short as this meditation seems, the benefits of a quick 5-minute meditation are astounding. Give it a try yourself!

I hope this helps you get by your day much easier than before momma! Remember that you’re doing great in everything that you do! And if nobody has told you in a while, let me be the one to tell you, YOUR ARE AMAZING!

Why Mental Health Awareness is so Important

Mental Health is one of the topics people have been avoiding for so long. Why? Well, we may live in the 20th Century already but still most people’s mindset when you say Mental Health still believes that means that we’re talking about a crazy individual or those who really lost their minds and can’t function well in the society.

With that mindset of the most, people who find themselves in hard times dealing with their Mental Health are forced to keep it to themselves or even try to ignore this important aspect in their life that should actually be faced head on and given priority talking about.

This Pandemic have surely shook all of our lives and added much more anxiety and stress to our already busy lives. The struggle to have a steady income and stable job have been increased drastically. With everyone being asked to stay home as part of safety measures to somehow flatten the curve of Covid-19 spread, the opportunities to find jobs have been more challenging. And while working from home can be a blessing, that thin line between work and home life have been pretty non-existent and that can cause more issues.

These challenges needed to be faced no matter what to survive. With this, the importance to pay attention to mental health is essential.
