Springtime Regimen..

5/09/2011 07:07:00 PM

Alright, so since it's spring I am going to try and RE-ENERGIZE MYSELF.

Cause winter REALLY brings out the LAZY BITCH in me, so I need to make sure that I can get myself back to normal for the warm weather. So in order to not have to worry about my hair everyday, I have put them in braid extensions, like I wanted to. Also.. I am going to try and give myself better me-time. Time to take care of myself and my surroundings. Also, in case you'd like to do so too.. here is what I am going to do for Spring/Summer 2011.

Shopping List:

Dried fruit and nuts
Peanut Butter
Craisins (or just dried fruit...)
Fruit smoothies (that I usually make at home anyway.)

How I will prepare my ginseng is basically, I am going to just slice up some ginseng and drop the slices in my re-usable water bottle and drink it with water and a slice of lemon.

I may try the infamous MEDITATION, but every time I meditate.... I fall asleep. So.... yeah.
I tend to let the little things that shouldn't matter bother me. I really went OFF THE WALL last weekend and did something I should not have done, and ended up arguing with a rude man on the street downtown. Very. Very. Very bad day. He was out of line though...

So anyways, I figured that meditation would maybe help me with relaxing a bit, since it reduces stress levels and anxiety.

A Basic Guide to Meditation:

  • Sit with a straight back. Don’t try to meditate lying down because you are likely to fall asleep(Haha, like me!). Meditation brings relaxation and peace but at the same time this is a dynamic peace. Meditation is quite different than the relaxation of sleep. When we really meditate, we are fully alert and conscious. Our sense of awareness is heightened. Afterwards you’ll have a positive feeling for the world and a renewed sense of dynamism.
  • Don’t eat before meditating. After a heavy meal your body will be lethargic with digestion.
  • It is not necessary to mediate in the lotus posture. It is fine to meditate in a chair, as long as the back is straight.
  • It is helpful to take a shower before meditating.
  • Burning incense and having a candle are not necessary, but they can add a little extra inspiration.
  • It is good to meditate early in the morning. It is said the best time is 3am, although, I feel it is more important to be awake and not sleepy, try 6.30am.

  • Anyways....
    Note that you shoouldnt use too much ginseng cause it can cause health problems and make sure to stay focused on ONE thing when you first start out meditating.
