Do A Guided Meditation For Caregiver
We hope you’ve been more cognizant of your inner voice over during the Show Yourself Kindness challenge, powered by CeraVe. It is time to take it one step further with meditation. Sometimes we need to turn inward more. Today is one of those days.
When you meditate, you turn your mind away from distracting thoughts and focus on the present moment. The activity can involve turning your attention to a single point of reference, focusing on the breath, bodily sensations, or a mantra. While some people can comfortably meditate on their own, others benefit from having a guide.
Today, take a few minutes to try one of these guided meditations for caregivers:
- Self-compassion for caregivers
- Self-compassion break
- Soften, soothe, allow: Working with emotions in the body
Once you’ve finished the meditation, think about how you feel mentally, emotionally, and physically. Does your body feel lighter? Does your mind feel more content and calmer than it did previously? What does your inner voice sound like now?
If you notice positive results from this meditation, turn to it whenever needed. Use it as a tool throughout your day to stay focused on self-compassion.
