What’s your purpose? Does that question make you cringe? Honestly, I think that when the idea of finding purpose comes up many of us start to sweat and wonder if we measure up. Our minds wander to our jobs, our education, our hobbies… and all of the things we do. And for many of us, we may find ourselves wanting (or completely lost)
But what if things could be different? What if our purpose isn’t really what we’ve been led to believe? What if it comes from a completely different place?
If the idea of finding your purpose makes you cringe… if you’re feeling like you’ll never find it, or if you’ve recently lost your way, this post is for you <3.
What if I told you that there was something you could do for 10 to 20 minutes a day that would leave you feeling more relaxed and less anxious, build up your memory retention and attention to detail, increase feelings of empathy, support your immune system and even foster a healthy blood pressure? Would you be down? Totally, right? Great news, mindfulness meditation can do all that and more! And it’s a simple (and free) addition to your self care routine!
Let’s talk about what mindfulness meditation is, how it works and how you can take advantage of all it has to offer:
Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in the middle of a never ending to-do list? There are always a million things that need to be done. Many of us work our booties off all day only to come home and work even more. But how often do you sit back and literally do nothing?
Even in our free time, we often fill the void with other activities… from checking e-mails, to returning texts and phone calls, to doing all of those chores that seriously seem to never end. Doing nothing can leave us feeling guilty. But if there’s one thing you add to your self-care routine it definitely needs to be time to do nothing. It’s anything but a waste of time.
Let’s talk about why doing nothing can be one of the best things that you can do for yourself.

Changing your diet can seem incredibly daunting and it can be difficult to know where to start. The overwhelming idea of revamping the way we eat everyday can leave us feeling like a deer caught in headlights; we know that we should make a move, but we’re so intimidated that we simply stay where we are. But in all honesty, eating a diet made up of healthy food is not only one of the best things that you can possible do for your general well being, it’s actually not as complicated as it seems. Sometimes it can be as simply as making some healthy food swaps. Making healthy swaps over time can truly make a huge difference.
