a few days ago, over on my stories, I asked you guys what questions you had about meditation. I received 53 questions and they all boiled down to these 2 questions... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #1. How do you get started with meditation if you've never done it? #2. What are the benefits of meditating? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Getting started is easy. I always recommend people start at 5 minutes and then increase by one minute each session until you are up to 20. Quieting the mind is no small task and I think you shouldn't try to force it. Instead, just work on being present to your thoughts without going down any rabbit holes. It helps to focus on your breathing if you are having a hard time getting comfortable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As far as benefits go...the list is long...but these are the 5 benefits I have noticed since I started a regular #meditation practice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - lowers my stress - helps me better connect with those around me - improves my focus - reduces the chatter in my brain - helps me uncover the source of my physical and/or mental pain ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Meditation is kinda my non-negotiable self-care must. Are you up for giving it a try? I'd love to hear about your experience 💖 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #meditationtime #peace✌ #mompreneurs #goals❤️ #bizcoach #affirmations #wahm #blogger #momentofsilence #instamood #contentcreator #soulpreneurs #sandiegolife #highvibes #manifestation #girlbosslife #lifeonfire #woowoo #workathomemom #inspiredbythis #healthandwellbeing #highvibration #successcoach #lifestyleguide

I love this pic of me but not for the reasons you might think. 😉 This picture was taken on day 5 of being incredibly sick which was also day 3 of an in person team meeting. I was physically depleted, recovering from a series of anxiety attacks from the week before, and feeling uncertain about everything I was feeling. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Old me would have shut down, hid from the world, and actively resisted any sort of help or release. (I’m a former professional self-sabotage master lol!) But the new me, the Deanna in this picture, sick as all hell, showed up for my team determined to not let my mental and emotional state be a reflection of how sick my body felt. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I decided to use the little energy I had to be curious, to be open to learning or receiving whatever it was that was in store for me. It worked. I made it through, maybe even better than had I not been sick. I wasn’t sure I had the strength within me to be at peace inside while my outside self was on its own healing journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I totally did and now I feel unstoppable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The ideas, strategies, and insights that came to me this week are going to change my life and the lives of everyone I touch. That is what I feel when I look at this picture and in this moment I’m full of gratitude for the perfect storm of chaos that led me here. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You too are more powerful than you ever imagined and that’s what I want for you (and everyone) - to be able to look at yourself and see strength and love and limitless abundance. 💖 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • • • • #glowup #creativepreneur #raiseyourvibration #lifecoaching #solopreneur #spiritualgangster #highvibes #womeninbiz #mompreneur #sheissuccessful #workfromhomemom #wahmlife #inspiredlife #onlinebiz #businesscoach #techie #soulpreneur #marketingstrategy #biztips #beyourownboss #lifeonfire #girlbosses #goalseeker #goaldiggers
