Why Meditation is a Key Part of Self Care

IMG_3754.PNG

So here's the thing about February, there have been some years that I'm all about the heart shaped chocolates... but most years I’ve been a Valentine’s scrooge. Well, I've decided to redefine this month as a month of Self Love, simple as that! We women are caring and generously giving on the daily, but how much of that loving energy to we show ourselves? The Pinterest perfect bubble baths & extra massage appointments are amazing ways to physical care for ourselves... but it can’t end there! What I believe we're missing out on as “self care” is hitting the main stream media is the fact that self care starts with our mindset!

Our thoughts, our ideas and the images we have of ourselves. 

This is were meditation made a HUGE shift for me. It became so much more than this concept of sitting cross-legged and “clearing” your mind. It’s about loving, accepting and trusting yourself. WAY easier said than done, lemme tell ya!

So I’ve been creating up a storm over here to offer those looking to jump start their meditation practice and actually stick with it!

And thus the Self Care Through Meditation Online Course was created! It’s a 4-week course where I jump on live with our group of rad women on Wednesday nights! We have a quick chat, meditate and support each other through this process of learning how to meditate!

I designed this course for women who are feeling like they just don’t have time for themselves. Day in and day out, you have this underlying feeling of just, giving-giving-giving. And then you feel guilty that you wish you could just do something for yourself. Like this whole, “filling- up your own cup first” business. But when do you have time?

 

Maybe you…

  • have tried to meditate but it’s been inconsistent and didn't really “work”

  • are overwhelmed with that negative inner voice

  • are feeling so-so about your current self care practices

  • are feeling isolated trying it all on your own

 



What you’d really like is…

  • a comfortable meditation practice that fits your lifestyle

  • mental clarity & energy to focus on the positives

  • feeling confident and grounded with how you’re treating yourself

  • being part of a community that is going through it together

We all know our mental state is crucial to our happiness, that's why learning & practicing meditation is a personal and sacred investment in ourself. It doesn’t only benefit you but also your family, clients and students.

I’ve made this course to be bite-size, easy access and fully guided so you can really get into the groove of what meditation has to offer you. I would've saved myself a lot of stress & hours of reading and researching for meditation techniques that would work for me. Instead I went through it all to now be able to offer an effective meditation technique that I'm so excited to share with you!
