When was the last time you felt like you were being pulled in 20 different directions? Or do you ever just feel like an air head with your head up in the clouds? Or do you simply just have too much going on at once? On top of whatever you may be going through, it is also Springtime. Activities are picking up, we’re spending more time outside, and you might even have some travel plans lined up. Even though Spring is a time of growth and blossoming, because of the extra buzz of energy, it often leaves me feeling ungrounded.
I recently had the opportunity to work with Mala Prayer and I jumped at the chance. With the 30 Day Meditation Challenge, I have been experimenting in my meditation practice and working with mala beads was a technique I wanted to implement. Mala Prayer’s are beautiful, afforable, and help support a good cause. As stated on their website, “With every purchase made we help enrich the lives of women entrepreneurs by providing them with access to money to invest in their business, homes and community through micro-finance loans.” I am down with that.
Last Tuesday I went to Flo2S, in Little Five Points, to try Float Therapy, or as some call it, a sensory deprivation tank. Why, you may be asking? For Christmas, I received a set of yoga clothes that I wasn’t happy with. I returned it, and my parents asked me what I wanted instead. Since I wasn’t going to paying for it, I asked myself, “What is something I’ve been wanting to try but haven’t been able to justify spending my own money on?” My best friend raves about infrared saunas, so I went on a google hunt for one locally.
At the end of November, I asked Instagram if anyone would be interested in a meditation challenge in 2018. The resounding answer was YES. I am so excited to launch the 30 Day Meditation Challenge! My main goal with this challenge is to help you (and myself) begin, or restart, a consistent meditation practice, while also having the opportunity to connect with other like-minded individuals. Let’s start conversations about meditation.
