What is meditation?
For thousands of years, human beings have practiced refined techniques of mental focusing, designed to change the habitual conditioning of the mind. Central to many spiritual and philosophical traditions and known in English as “meditation,” these practices are considereda major means for enhanced awareness and self-mastery.
Because this is one of the few times of the year you’ll get everyone in the same space, the holidays are the perfect time to discuss matters of health and wellness with your loved ones. Without pushing an agenda or being dogmatic about any particular way to be healthy, you can implement sustainable lifestyle changes that everyone can integrate into their lives, without having to use deprivation or willpower to make it happen.
I’ve noticed a tendency for people who don’t engage in daily physical activity to see it as something you only do if you want to lose or maintain weight, build muscle.
It’s been a looong time since I’ve had a collard green smoothie. Typically, I only make them in the fall when I have access to cranberries and apples. I blend all of that with whole milk yogurt or kefir to give it body and it’s a nice, sweet-tart blend.
Today I’m embarking on a summer green smoothie challenge (care to join me? I offer a guided green smoothie challenge with a coaching session and private FB group. Click here for more info) along with a fitness challenge.
