National Relaxation Day is coming up on August 15th and we are celebrating by taking a step back from the fast-paced world we live in to slow down and unwind. One of our favorite aspects of going on retreat is learning to embrace the art of relaxation. The stress of our daily lives can take a toll on our well-being. On retreat, your health and well-being are placed front and center. You are concentrating on your practice and taking time out of your normal routine to care for yourself.
Learning how to relax takes time and practice. It can be challenging to embrace downtime and actually allow yourself to unwind. Meditation is a great way to focus the mind and enhance self-awareness so that you can begin to relax and reduce stress. You can bring elements of the retreat experience to your daily life by creating a mini at-home relaxation retreat. Just 10 minutes out of your busy day can make all the difference! By carving out this time for yourself, you will be able to refuel your spirit with much-deserved rest return to your daily life with a greater sense of ease.
In honor of National Relaxation Day, International Yoga teacher Jeremy Falk has created a 10 minute guided meditation to share with you! This meditation is a simple way for you to take a mini-retreat from your daily life and create space to reconnect to your own inner wisdom. So find a comfortable seat and join Jeremy on a journey to the heart!
