Why You Should Set Aside Time for Meditation Each Day

 

As you’re probably well aware, today is Valentine’s Day. Although this is traditionally a day where people express their love for the people they care about the most — and you most definitely should call or text those people today to let them know you love them — it is also important to not neglect yourself. At Basic Purity, we believe that self-care is a crucial part of every person’s life. Whether you’re a fan of the holiday today or not, we think that finding ways to take good care of yourself is something pretty much everyone can get behind.

That’s why in today’s post, we’ll be talking about some of the amazing benefits of meditation. Our Enchanted Sleep Kits are some of the best ways to put together your own meditation kit that contains all of the things you need. We’re happy to offer a number of different luxury beauty products, but the Enchanted Sleep Kits are some of our favorites because they can help you to calm your mind and take you to a place where you can truly get some beauty rest.

Whether you have tried meditation in the past or it’s entirely new to you, we hope that today’s post will shed some light and offer some insight into what many find to be a renewing, refreshing, and relaxing experience. Keep reading to learn more!

Gain a Greater Sense of Inner Peace and Harmony

Although many who practice meditation do so with an element of spirituality, the truth is that regardless of your beliefs, meditation has been proven to be an effective way of recentering yourself after a particularly long day at work. Studies have also shown that it is a reliable way of lowering your blood pressure, making you more alert, relieving pain in your body. In other words, if you can find a way to meditate effectively, you’ll be treated to a number of wonderful benefits.

An article from the trusted team over at the Mayo Clinic even finds that “Meditation can wipe away the day's stress, bringing with it inner peace.” They go on to note that “during meditation, you focus your attention and eliminate the stream of jumbled thoughts that may be crowding your mind and causing stress.” This allows you to gain a sense of calm well-being.

How You Can Start Meditating

The varieties of meditation are quite possibly endless. From transcendental meditation that’s practiced by many celebrities to mantra meditation in which you focus on a word or phrase that brings you peace to guided meditations that you can find online which, as their name implies, guide you through a meditation session that’s designed to help you relax, there is a style of meditation for everyone. You can even meditate while doing yoga, which you may have learned at a local yoga studio.

At the end of the day, if you’d like to try meditating, do a bit of research and find a style that sounds suitable to your specific needs. As long as you can focus your attention, take deep breaths, and not get distracted, you’ll be just fine. We think you’ll find that you can meditate pretty much anywhere once you get the hang of it. Whether you’re going for a walk around the neighborhood in the evening or you’re in your car on a break from work, taking the time to meditate can help to make your day that  much better.

One thing to keep in mind is that it does take practice. Just because you can’t stop your mind from racing the first couple of times doesn’t mean that you’re not making progress. Be patient with yourself, keep after it, and keep in mind that there’s no such thing as a wrong way of meditating.

How Our Enchanted Sleep Kits Can Help

Here at Basic Purity, you’ll find a number of luxury beauty products. We pride ourselves on offering high end skin care products, beauty pillowcases, essential oils for dry and sensitive skin, and more. As we mentioned at the beginning of this post, the Enchanted Sleep Kits are among our favorites. Why is that, you ask?

It’s simple. Each kit comes with a variety of things designed to relax you. Whether it’s a silk pillowcase, a crystal stone, or one of our add ons like cedar, sage, or abalone shell, these items are designed to put you at ease. Take a look at your choices and you’re sure to find something that sticks out to you.

(A note about our add ons: you can add cedar for protection, sage for blessings, or abalone shell for smudging. Sage, for example, is antimicrobial and antibacterial and it is though to release negative ions, drive away negative energy, and even improve your quality of sleep. No matter with add ons you choose, you’re sure to find that they perfectly complement our Enchanted Sleep Kits and they’re a great way to ease your mind into restful, relaxing, restorative meditation.)
