Meditate your way to relaxation in 20 minutes

As the old Zen saying goes, “You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes every day. Unless you’re too busy: then you should sit for an hour.” But lucky for you—this meditation has the power to calm and settle your mind in just 20 minutes. By once again focusing on your breath, expert Deborah guides you through a practice that is destined to become your new daily habit.

 

And we even have a pro tip: along with the additional minutes, why not add an element of aromatherapy to your practice? Scents have a powerful effect on our emotional state, and introducing them into your practice can enhance your mind-body connection by engaging more senses. Take a deep breath, light a scented candle and let’s get started.
