It’s no secret that college is stressful. It seems that many of us will spend an
all-nighter studying and then reward ourselves with an all-nighter of binge-watching
our favorite shows. What if we tried incorporating self-care and “treating ourselves”
into our daily routine? What if we started practicing mastering the art of balance?
Where would we even begin?
First of all, what is meditation? It is a mental exercise that brings us
better awareness and helps us create a mind-body connection. Practing meditation
so many benefits, including overall better mood, lower blood pressure, and
better concentration. It is important to remember that there is not a right or
wrong way to do it! The important things are that you feel relaxed and enjoy
the time spent doing it. Meditating every morning can help start your day off
right, leading you to feel more organized and centered. Many have said that meditating
every evening has been helpful for falling asleep.
