Happy Saturday! We’re sending some sunshine to you and your family and trust that you are happy, healthy and well! In today’s video, I share how Eastwood Wealth has been navigating the recent choppy and unchartered waters.
I’m also excited to introduce you to a good friend, Holly Konrady. Holly is a yoga and meditation instructor who has her own studio in Wilmington, hollymkonrady.com. I invited Holly to guide us through a brief meditation to enjoy a few minutes of peacefulness.
Meditation is simply the practice of turning our awareness inward by becoming still, quiet and focusing on our breath. Breathing in and out through the nose induces a calming sensation causing the body to relax and the mind to follow. Even when doing so, it is normal for the mind to wander down one of the estimated 80,000 thoughts we have in a day. When this happens, simply return to the breath. Make a few minutes each day for yourself and see how you respond.
Meditation has scientifically shown to decrease blood pressure and increase parts of the brain that incorporate concentration, decision making and connectivity. It has also been found to reduce the size of the amygdala, which is the area that automatically activates our fight or flight response when we feel fear or anxiety. Meditation is a wonderful outlet in our current environment. For more, check out Holly’s new YouTube channel.
Have a great Easter weekend! Take care, Tim
