How Meditation Can Help You Commit To Your New Year’s Resolution

The start of a new year can bring new changes, challenges, and purpose into your life. It is a great time to start fresh and set new goals for yourself.

 

For many of us, it can be difficult maintaining a resolution after a few weeks into January. One way to stay focused on your future plans is through meditation. Practicing meditation daily brings you peace of mind and allows you to set clear intentions for your future.

 

One of the most compelling abilities we have as human beings is the power to manifest our dreams into action. The strength of the mind allows you to visualize your goals and understand how to make them your reality. When life’s situations and distractions get in the way, meditation helps up stay centered.

 

Regardless of what your resolution may be, meditation can be the most important element into ensuring you reach your goals.

 

Here’s how meditation can help you stay on track:

 

It Creates Space For Self Acceptance

In order for you to achieve anything you desire in life, you not only have to believe in the goal but believe that you can do it yourself. Your goals are individual to you; nobody else can  accomplish them for you. Meditation produces positive intent that with time, allows you to gain self-acceptance.

 

It Helps You Stay Grounded

When you are meditating, you are balancing the energies around you to get rid of feelings of uneasiness. Meditation brings your focus back to what is important at that moment. When you set an intention for your meditation practice, you create an environment full of awareness.

 

It Clears Your Mind

One of the most beneficial aspects of meditation is being able to calm your thoughts and open up space for clarity. When you feel your mind start to wander, let your thoughts pass and refocus on your intention. With practice and experience, these thoughts will not come as often.

 

By choosing to take a few moments of your day to meditate, you are creating a mindset for success that will carry with you outside of your practice.

At Healing Hands, we believe that overall wellness is achieved by balancing the mind, body, and soul. Our class in Spiritual Healing teaches our students how to bring awareness into our energetic system through meditation.

How To Keep Your Mind, Body, and Soul Balanced During The Holiday Season

While the holiday season is a time full of gatherings with friends and family, many of us can find ourselves feeling stressed and overwhelmed.

 

At Healing Hands, we prioritize the health of our mind, body, and soul. We believe that in order to promote wellness in your life, these three key elements need to be in balance. We incorporate this into our teachings by offering classes such as Spiritual Healing and hosting events like our Holistic Living Retreat. We are passionate about giving our students every opportunity to enhance their lives, and in turn, the lives of others.

 

Juggling the health of each of these elements on a regular basis can be difficult, so it is especially important to stay mindful during this time of year.

 

Try these tips to keep you feeling balanced during this hectic season:

 

Mind: Stay Organized

Although December is known as the most wonderful time of the year, it can also be the most chaotic time of year. It is easy to get caught up in the clutter of tasks when you are not organized. Whether it is your work life or personal life, planning ahead is the best way to steer clear of stress. Creating lists and scheduling out your days can keep you on track and help you establish a productive agenda.

 

Body: Eating Clean

The holiday season includes many parties, which means a ton of delicious food. It can be easy to overindulge in your favorite holiday cookies or that extra glass of spiked eggnog, but try to limit your unhealthy intake as much as possible. A great way to ensure a healthy balance is by saving your guilty pleasures for the weekend. If you maintain a clean diet during the week, don’t be afraid to enjoy yourself at your next holiday party.

 

Soul: Morning Meditation

Staying grounded during this time is extremely important for your overall health. With emotions running on high from everyone around you, it can be easy to start feeling anxious. Creating time for yourself is crucial. By taking even as little as 5 minutes of your morning to meditate can set a positive and productive tone for your day. Now is the best time to start a meditation routine as you can carry it into the new year.

 

The team at Healing Hands School of Holistic Health wants you to cherish the holidays. Taking care of your mind, body, and soul during this time of year will help you genuinely enjoy this eventful season.
