Contact us now for all your Design & Print Services Honestly, no New Year’s resolution is going to work if you are still holding on to the past 12 months of toxins: emotional baggage, mental stress, and physical degradation. January is the perfect time to get serious about cleansing your mind, body, and soul of all these things that are holding you back from living a balanced life. Pick a day or even an hour before the new year, and just unplug from everything. Write down your accomplishments and failures from this year and look at your failures and see what you have learned from them. List what your goals are for the new year. Take five minutes to meditate and let go of the past. Cry if you need to and hug yourself for just being brave enough to free yourself from last year's negativity, and just move on to the next fresh, new year. Start the new year with this new list, but each day next year write down your daily goals. As yogis, we know that each day changes, as does each year. A lot can happen in a year, so try accomplishing your goals day by day. You will have some failures but learn from them and thrive. Mediation Cleanse for New Year ¬ Get Comfortable & Breathe. Sit or lay on the floor. Rest the palms of your hands on your thighs and relax your arms. Look straight ahead but try not to focus anywhere in particular. Take a deep breath and start feeling your heartbeat. ¬ After a few breaths, move your attention to your calves. Feel these for several breaths. Then move your attention to your thighs, then to your abdomen and lower back, your chest and upper back, your shoulders, your arms, and lastly your head. Let your awareness cover your whole body. The idea is to “scan” your body with your attention, stopping for a few breaths on each part. This practice will strengthen your ability to direct and hold your attention. Practicing being present will help clear the negativity from your mind. You will begin to be able to use your energy and attention to stay present and be more productive. Practicing this 5-minute meditation is a great way to help strengthen your ability to stay present and anxiety-free throughout the year 24
