It’s easy Cultural Stress to cloud our minds, causing us to skimp on the shut-eye that our bodies so desperately need. Taking a moment to pause through meditation can help you get centered, calm, and ready for sleep.
Studies show that meditation empowers us to take control of our emotions and the reactions of our nervous system when under stress. A mere 15-30 minutes of meditation can help your mind and body detox, and thus create a better foundation for a good night’s rest. Find a quiet and dimly lit location where you can devote this time to ending your day on a stress-free high note.
Cue up relaxing music to pair with an overnight detoxifying moisturizer before bed. Focusing on self-awareness while your mind and skin neutralizes the days’ pollutants will reacquaint you with your beautiful self.
Meditation research pioneer Dr. Herbert Benson from Harvard Medical School determined in the 1960’s that meditation was beneficial for eliminating obsessive thinking, anxiety, depression and hostility, hence increasing overall happiness. What’s not to like about going to bed happy? We recommend finding a good meditation app (like Buddify) where you can select specific meditations tailored for bedtime.
If you aren’t ready to commit to an app yet, websites like YouTube have plenty of guided meditations that you can try out. Just don’t forget that while your body is recharging, your skin will be super-charged by the antioxidants from Marrubium Plant Stem Cells in our City Skin® Overnight Detox Moisturizer.
