What is your excuse for why you can’t meditate?

Examples of excuses and reasons that you can meditate.


My mind is too busy – don’t worry, while you are sitting meditating you will become aware of your busy and chaotic mind, which meditation will help to unwind. You will experience lots of thoughts, feelings and possibly emotions.  It doesn’t matter how you feel whilst meditating, concentrate on how you feel after and for the rest of the day.

I get too fidgety – you don’t have to sit still, you just need to be comfortable, if you fidget do so it will lessen the more you meditate.

My anxiety kicks in – while all your negative thoughts are coming up that would be normal. Meditating and learning breathing exercises will calm you.

Sitting still is my worst nightmare – then consider going for a walk in the park or woods, without earphones in, listening to nature. You could learn yoga, Qi gong or tai chi where you meditate moving. The art is to just “be” not always “doing”

I don’t like it – if you have tried one type of meditation and it was not for you, there are other types out there.  Here are a few transcendental, mantra, breathing, visualisation, guided and there are many more.

I am too busy – How much time do you waste looking at Social Media, watching TV, playing games online? You only need 20 minutes a day to feel the benefit.Candles, Orchid and Some White Pebbles

Soul Essence is pleased to bring you Your Monthly Wellbeing Words…

Did you know…?

There are lots of little things you can do at home to help get rid of your cellulite.

– Use an exfoliating sponge in the shower. This will stimulate blood flow to your skin and help increase circulation to carry away the cellulite
– Massage your fatty tissue areas daily to break up the fat
– Wear body-shaping pantyhose that contour your thighs to compress the fat and help with circulation.
– Reduce your intake of caffeine and quit smoking.
– Increase your water intake.

Depending on your body type and skin shape, your cellulite may never completely disappear but you can help it along!

Have you ever tried…?
Socks to Cure Insomnia. When the body gets cold, the heat is all reserved for the core of the body. This leaves feet feeling chilly and increases the chance of waking up in the middle of the night. Slipping into some warm, fuzzy socks just 20 minutes before bed can decrease the amount of time it takes to fall asleep and stop those mid-night wake-up sessions that leave you foraging for sweets and unhealthy snacks.

Thought of the Month….

…..that love is sometimes shown in the things you don’t say, don’t keep track of, and don’t notice.


The greatest kindness is often shown in letting things go.


None of us is perfect, but we can all be perfect friends and perfect partners by allowing those that we love to be imperfect.


Give those around you the “break” that you hope the world will give you on your own “bad day” and you’ll never, ever regret it.


Neale Donald Wasch
