We’re living in very stressful times. That’s why, to find balance, we must engage in the pillars of well-being which include good sleep, meditation, emotional nurturing, exercise and eating nutrition that’s healthy, organic, free of chemicals, pesticides and hormones. There’s scientific proof of what yoga and meditation do to our bodies in terms of aging and cellular renovation — it acts directly on our genes. It aides the body in self-regulation, the benefits are there and the Internet now allows for easier global access. We need to turn inward for answers and create a global ecosystem that keeps individuals constantly engaged, so we may share ideas as well as help each other, which is the reason behind my most recent 21-day meditation challenges. Participating in these meditation challenges allows for a space to connect more spiritually, emotionally and physically as a global community of wellness.
