Soothing Saturday : Beach Meditation

soothing beach meditation bajezen.blog

 

This my attempt at a little beach meditation. For those who need a little bit of calm and relaxation in their day.  The health benefits of salt water are endless. Today I want to focus on mental well being.  Magnesium-rich seawater purportedly can also relax your muscles, reduce stress and help induce sleep. Magnesium depresses nerves to relieve nervous irritability for an increased sense of calmness, according to wellness pioneer and author J.I. Rondale. excerpted from livestrong.com

Having said this I have included a video to help with visualization. If you need a short break or a pick me up here is your small dose of Vitamin SEA.

 

Find yourself somewhere comfy where you won’t be disturbed. Take a deep breath in and out. Feel your body relaxing. Feel yourself letting go of everything weighing you down. Listening to the waves, imagine them washing all of your cares away.  Today’s mantra will be: I am Calm. I am soothed. I am safe. You can repeat this phrase as often as you like for as long as you wish. Just listen to the sound of the waves and let them take you away.

Have a Soothing Saturday. Love and Blessings

Be good to your body :Edible

There are many things that are edible but not really nourishing to the body.

 


So when you grab that next quick fix be mindful of what it does to your body.
Junk food creates junk bodies so make taking care of yourself a priority.
God created fruits and vegetables to make us bountiful, blissful and healthy.
The thing I love about island life is the fact that you can get “fast food” from the trees and nature. I remember when I was younger we used to live for tamarinds, dunks and fat porks. Now for the sake of convenience, we all started eating out of boxes; eating grease and chemicals and basically sludge which does nothing to fuel our bodies.
The breadfruit, the mangoes, sweet potatoes and plantains that our fore -parents lived on made them strong and vibrant. Sadly we all got lazy, not realising they are plenty of cheap, quick and delicious meals you can prepare from nature’s bounty. Tasty, hearty and filling too; trust me just try a roast breadfruit. It’s a delight to the palate.
I just love colourful fruits and vegetables and making my dishes rainbow pretty. Let’s add something natural to our diets today and get back to being healthy.
