Meditation and All Of It’s Benefits!

Meditation and All Of It’s Benefits!

DSC_0862_2 I have had a regular mediation practice for a while now. I used to be quite regimented and wake up a half hour early each morning and do it first thing for at least 20 minutes. Throughout my pregnancy, I’ve had to shift things a bit. In my first trimester I had to eat when I first woke up or else I would be nauseous, so my meditation would come later in the day usually. In my second trimester I was so exuberant, I actually just found myself mediating and rubbing my belly all day long throughout the day. Now that I’m in my final stages, I’m trying to go back to a morning routine where I can calm my mind and relax about my upcoming delivery. 

Here’s a really cool infographic from Marcela De Vivo, a health and beauty writer from Los Angeles, showing all of the benefits of meditation, the proper seat to try (although I find even lying down or sitting in a chair works, do what is most comfortable for you; and don’t force your knees in to lotus if your hips aren’t open, just sit cross legged), and a black and white meditation you can try.
