Feel like you can't turn off when you try to meditate? Yeah, me too.
So I created a simple exercise to target my sympathetic nervous system, and get my body out of "get it done" mode.
We engage the mind with self talk, and keeping count (12 is a multiple of 108).
While you inhale (through the nose), focus on expansion, and receiving life force.
While you exhale (through the mouth), focus on relief and release.
You can say the mantra aloud or in your mind. Both work, so you can do this anywhere, anytime you feel anxious or overactivated (aka have signs of Vata imbalance).
You scroll through my 10 tips for overeating in 10 sec on your phone. The next week, you learn about yoni eggs, or how to adjust your face mask seasonally. Sometimes you learn about thought leaders in wellness. And, of course, sometimes we get our DIY on. No matter how we show up in your inbox, it's always something good.
