Is Your Mind All FUNKED UP?

Mama taught us to wash our bodies, brush our teeth and clean our hands. But mama never taught us to wash the funk out of our brains. The winter season can be a dangerous place for our minds if we don't clean up.  I am the poster girl for winter emotional blues. I rarely feel like talking to people, going out or exercising.  So I found way to balance out my moods with winter meditation.
Seated meditation in half lotus puts life in perspective.
Seasonal depression is real. We like to cover it up with food or a warm winter boo thang. But we can't cover up our emotions and mental stress.  It is time to give your brain a break with 4 simple tips.  

1) Create a quiet, uninterrupted space.
2) Get into a comfortable seated position (or chair)
3) Inhale for 7 seconds, hold, Exhale for 7 seconds. Repeat.
4) Let your breath do all the work.

In the winter things are literally frozen. Old man winter has a way of telling our minds and bodies to sit still. A daily meditation helps us sit and cleanse away old thoughts and beliefs. 

Meditation is like giving your brain a daily shower. 

This winter join me for the Soulful Flow Yoga Series where we explore a meditation practice.  Learn to use the breath to clean the crud out of the corners of your brain.
