Welcome back to the fourth installment of the Busy Bride Meditation Challenge! Today we will enjoy an eight minute guided meditation together.
Today’s meditation is one of the cornerstones of the lying down meditation practices. It involves sweeping through the body with the mind, bringing awareness to every region from the toes to the head.
This is one of my absolute favorite techniques for stress relief, both physically and mentally. Without moving a muscle you can systematically notice and relax each part of the body.
The mind has an enormous amount of power over the body. Negative thoughts can wreak havoc on your physical and hormonal self, while positive thoughts have the opposite effect. When you are aware of how your body feels you are better equipped to make the best decisions for your body and health each day.
Today let’s harness the power of the mind to release tension, and embrace awareness, energy and relaxation.

Why You Need This
Physical tension, caused by stress, creates a ripple effect inside the body leading to migraines, irritability, anxiety and constipation.
These are seriously unsexy symptoms for the Bombshell Bride.
