Hello & Happy Tuesday!!

 

 

 


We all understand about the everyday power of scent. How a particular smells evokes memories of a particular time, but did you know that various scents can actually improve your health? Essential oils can aid in assisting with relaxation and balancing your mood. The benefits extend well beyond just a pleasant aroma!

In my personal life and especially in my yoga practice, essential oils are just that.. essential. I use Nature’s Truth Lavender and Calming oil for a myriad of thins. I apply them to the ends of my hair to tame fly aways, add them to a bath, use them as perfume, make non toxic cleaning products, and sprinkle them on my yoga bolsters and blankets. What I love most about essential oils is that they are concentrated, last a long time, and each evoke a different experience.

Tips for meditation 

 

 

 

Focus on breath
Close your eyes or softly gaze straight ahead. Breathe through your nose and gently focus on each inhalation and exhalation 

 

Choose a mantra 

Selecct one word or phrase called a mantra, to repeat and focus on during meditation An ideal mantra contains only a few words or syllables, for easy repetition. 

 

Clear your mind 

When thoughts or feelings bubble to the surface, simply notice them without judgment, and return your attention to your breath.

Benefits of Mediation: 

  • Studies in the last few years, carried out at Yale University, found that mindfulness meditation decreases activity in the default mode network (DMN), the brain network responsible for mind-wandering and self-referential thoughts
  • One recent study found that just a couple of weeks of meditation training helped people’s focus and memory during the verbal reasoning section of the GRE.
  • Research has also shown that mindfulness meditation, in contrast to attending to the breath only, can reduce anxiety – and that these changes seem to be mediated through the brain regions associated with those self-referential (“me-centered”) thoughts.
  • Mindfulness meditation has also been shown to help people with social anxiety disorder: a Stanford University team found that MBSR brought about changes in brain regions involved in attention, as well as relief from symptoms of social anxiety.
