Fit Your Mind

If you have followed this blog for awhile, have read some of the older posts, or even just read my bio, you will probably realize that my belief is that fitness is a lifestyle. That being said, I do not believe that fitness is only about a healthy body, but also a healthy mind.  

One of my favorite ways to clear my mind of negative thoughts and to refocus my intentions is by meditation/prayer/quiet reflection - whatever you want to call it!! I turn on some good music, sit on my yoga mat in front of a window, close my eyes, and let my thoughts guide me. I do not try to solve problems or make a "to do" list. I just sit and breathe. 

My challenge for you this weekend is to take 5 minutes each day to sit, breathe, and reflect. This will only take 15 minutes out of your entire weekend - please try it and let me know how it goes. 

Namaste



If you are looking for some good music for your reflection time - please check out http://www.jeffmorrisonline.com/en/ . Or find Jeff Morris on iTunes.
