Meditating is an incredible stress-relieving technique that can help you relax and find more peace in your life. While it may seem daunting, meditation is actually incredibly simple, and furthermore: fun! You can meditate with any amount of time you have available to set aside, and there are so many enjoyable strategies and techniques you can use to increase your success with meditation and feel more relaxed in your life! If you are going to practice meditating, it is best that you set aside time every day in order to meditate. However, if you have a busy schedule or find that you simply can’t afford daily time to invest in this relaxation technique, you can also consider scheduling it in a few times a week. The idea is to develop a regular practice that allows you to remain consistent and continually focus on increasing peace in your life. For those who have read up on meditation as a relaxation strategy in the past, you may have felt overwhelmed with the amount of information available. If you spend too much time reading on how to meditate, you might find that it seems to be a lot of work just to let go of some stress! The reality is, meditation is incredibly easy and a lot of fun.

Short and Sweet Life Saving Mindfulness Meditations
I very often get asked :
“Marta, I just don’t have the time to meditate…is it worth meditating for only a few minutes a day? Will it make any difference?”
This is something I can totally relate to. I am busy myself. It’s not that I have the whole day just to relax, meditate and drink my green smoothies while listening to relaxation music. But the truth is that it’s usually this “all or nothing” mindset that can be preventing us from moving forward and achieving success (whether it’s healh, diet, fitness or other areas of life). We tell ourselves that in order to take care of our body and mind, we need to have tons of free time, and do nothing but self-care all day long. This is a limiting belief actually! Self-care is always possible. It’s all about creating new, empowering habits. This is why I created this blog, I had struggled with health and many other areas of my life, and it wasn’t until I discovered the transformational power of positive mindset (focus on solutions, not on problems) that I could actually create long-lasting changes and restore balance (mini disclaimer here, perfect balance never exists, but as soon as you focus on neglected areas of your health or life and give it some love, you are closer to a balanced, happy life!). In this post, I share my simple meditation tricks that you can use daily, to be more at peace with yourself, even if you’re busy. Continue reading
Creating an Active but Almost Stress-Free Holistic Lifestyle
Have you ever thought how good it would feel if you could reduce stress in your life?
Health benefits: Less chance of heart disease, stronger immune system, more energy and zest for life, better dietary habits (we very often overeat or eat unhealthy food, as we believe it can help us feel less stressed- it’s called emotional eating), better sleep, less anxiety… the list goes on and on.
Personal and Professional Relationships: People prefer to hang out and work with people who are nice, more relaxed, and proactive (“good vibe”, right?). I am sure you don’t like to hang out with people who complain, are negative, or try to vent their anger and frustration on you. I think nobody does. By choosing to learn more about relaxation techniques (and applying them, of course. Information is useless, unless we apply it), you can be a source of inspiration for others and create great relationships and happiness…
Simple Guided Meditation to Overcome Negative Feelings
We’ve all been there. When you just feel overwhelmed and nothing is going your way. Suddenly you don’t even feel like listening to Tony Robbins’ motivational speeches and even though you know you could try to change your state, something is holding you back. You feel paralyzed by fear and anxiety. Personally, I believe that we are also meant to experience negative emotions and situations as they make us appreciate good moments in life. I am currently trying to learn how to be grateful even in negative situations because they make me stronger. I don’t mean- just to know how to be grateful in an intellectual way, but how to embrace this feeling with all your heart. Here’s a very simple meditation for when you’re having a bad day. Accept it. Even the most positive and successful people experience bad days and very often these bad days can be a blessing in disguise… Please read the guided meditation attached below and download it from the link above (thank you technology, thanks to you we can fight bad days with ease!).
Easy Meditation Tips for Amazing Results
Meditation is not about theory. Meditation is all about practice that results in visible and tangible results you deserve. This is why, this post is all about the practical side of meditation and how to make it your habit. I know what you’re thinking. ”Create a habit” sounds a bit boring and preachy. But from now on, I want you to perceive meditation as a habit you can’t even live without. I guess that you are researching information on meditation not because you just want to intellectually know it, but mainly because you want to experience all its benefits (BTW. check out my previous post on benefits of meditation here) right? It’s like going to the gym. You need to be consistent with it. You will never create strong muscles if you only go once or twice, right? So if you are ready to change your relationship with meditation and add it to your holistic wellness and personal development toolbox, read on. The best thing about mastering the habit of meditation (I believe we can never master meditation itself as it is a journey, but we can master the habit of it) is that it’s free. Moreover, you can use it whenever and wherever you want. No crazy rituals, no special equipment. Just you and your willingness to meditate. Before we dive into it, remember to download your Guided 5 Senses Meditation here (it’s free).
6 Reasons to Practice Meditation and Mindfulness
The best thing about meditation is that everyone can practice it and that it can always be personalized. Once you have gotten the basics of it, you can always take it with you. You can do it whenever you want and wherever you want. You will also see that if you try it and if you make it your habit, you’ll be wondering who you could ever live without it. Regular meditation practise is also something that I recommend in my post: “12 Simple Ways to Restore Your Energy Levels in 1 Week or Less” as one of the crucial steps on your path to holistic wellness. The step number one is just to sit down, relax, close your eyes and breathe. Don’t do anything else. Just breathe and observe your body and mind. Don’t judge your reactions. Just observe them. Immerse yourself in holistic relaxation. In this short article, I will show you the biggest benefits of meditation (with a scientific proof) so that you feel inspired to get started or, if you already meditate regularly, keep on track and take it to the next level!
