In this new post on Ecomii, I talk about my experience with a 21-Day Meditation Challenge, during which I meditated for at least 10 minutes every day for 21 days. Within a week, I felt more grounded. By the end of week 2, I was looking forward to those 10-20 minutes of equanimity and centering. And by the end of the third week, I wondered what took my so long to establish a more regular meditation practice. Meditating helps us handle life stresses better. It has been proven to lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety, and create a feeling of connectedness and purpose in life. In our hectic world, it is so worthwhile to take the time to pause, breathe, and be present in the moment that is. When you read this, I hope it inspires you to start on your own 21-day meditation challenge. Meditation is a great add-on to a nutritional detox program. As you detox your body, you should detox your mind from all negative thoughts. Good luck, and happy meditating!
