Meditation is a powerful tool that has a number of benefits that include reducing stress, anxiety and it can actually change your brain. All of this can be done in just a few days of practice!
And the best news? It doesn’t require you to do long meditations and struggle to fit them into your daily schedule.
That’s why I created this simple and short guided meditation for self-love that combines breathing techniques that get you present and centred, meditation practices to keep you in the moment and self-love affirmations that help you rewire your brain to learn to love yourself.
This can be used as a self-love sleep meditation to help you fall asleep or it can be used at any time during the day, whenever your meditation practice suits you best.
Time to get comfy! Sit or lay down in a space where you won’t be disturbed for 10-minutes. You can sit cross-legged or in a chair, whatever is comfortable for you. Just be sure you have a straight spine.
Place your hands at your sides if laying down, on your knees facing up or down or cup your hands in your lap if you’re sitting. Press play, close your eyes and enjoy this guided meditation for self-love and acceptance!
That’s it, love! How do you feel? Remember this feeling and use it as a reminder of why you want to practice meditating on a daily basis.
What always comes before self-love is self-acceptance. There are a few paths to self-acceptance and one of the most challenging for many women is body acceptance. We live in a culture where we’re constantly told to look a certain way that only emphasizes that we should be unhappy with our bodies. Accepting your body becomes radical. But what if accepting your body felt more natural instead of hating your body? How much space would that free up in your mind, thoughts, and day?
I take a deep dive into how you can start accepting your body and drop the self-hate in my Body Acceptance 101 Workshop that will take an hour of your time but deliver a lifetime of results.
