Hi, it’s John & Melissa, lifestyle coaches for people who want to be Fit and Focused over 50. It’s a new day, so let’s make the most of it and Own It. Today’s Own It Moment is a simple strategy to find your calm and boost mental clarity with meditation. Meditation is so important, especially as we age, to gain clarity and fight the negative effects of stress and worry.
Own Your Morning
Melissa and I always say you must own your morning to own your day! Meditation will help calm your mind before the chaos of everyday life sets in! Be sure to include it in your morning routine and wear headphones so there are no distractions during this alone time.
We’ve been meditating for years now, and one of the things I’ve always found helpful is wearing headphones. I find that the sound of silence can be really deafening, and it can be hard to focus on my breath when there’s so much white noise going on in my head.
But when I put on my Uproar wireless headphones and connect to my favorite meditation app, everything else fades away. I can really focus on the present moment. They are so lightweight, and the ear pillows are beyond comfortable; you’ll forget you’re even wearing them.
The other great thing about wearing headphones during meditation is that it allows me to block out any external distractions. If there’s a lot of noise around me, or if people are talking, it can be difficult to keep my mind from wandering. But when I have my Uproar wireless headphones on, I can just zone out and focus on my own internal world.
