HOW TO 'GET IN THE ZONE' While Meditating

POOSH

Japa malas

Not only are they gorgeous to wear, but these beaded necklaces have a higher function when strung with 108 beads, a sacred number. While your fingers roll over each bead, it helps you keep count of the 108 times you silently recite a mantra such as “Sat Nam” (I am truth) or an uplifting phrase, like “I am whole and complete.” The combination of doing both together keeps the mind and body occupied, while you fall into a quiet space beyond habitual thinking patterns. I have a beautiful one from Mala Collective with howlite stones, which have inherent calming properties.

Everyone is stressed and anxious this holiday season. 7 WAYS TO COPE

LA TIMES

Remind yourself it’s temporary and count blessings where you can. Once you know what you’re feeling and why, remind yourself the situation isn’t forever. It’s common when you have overwhelming feelings to catastrophize and engage in all-or-nothing thinking.

I feel like the holidays have been canceled…. My kids might be too old for this next year.

Question this thinking when it pops up and know that you’re not abandoning your holiday traditions forever; you’re just setting some rituals aside for 2020.

There has never been a better time to start a gratitude journal, says meditation teacher Ashley Wray, founder of the Mala Collective. Starting your morning by listing at least three things you’re grateful for is a science-backed way to shift your mindset for the day.

“The Mala Collective necklaces are truly spectacular. The malas—strings of beads traditionally used for meditation—are hand-knotted with gemstones like labradorite or amazonite, and they’re all handmade in Bali by female artisans. The brand’s mission is to inspire ‘mindful evolution,’ and they offer free guided meditations on their site, which has also taught me a lot about the true purpose of malas in meditation.” —Molly Kalinsky, manager, brand partnerships & marketing

How to meditate: 5 tips for beginners

CNET

Have something to focus on

When you first start meditating it can feel really uncomfortable to sit in silence without distractions, like your phone, around. One minute can feel like hours.

For this reason, Wray suggests using a tool to help you focus on your meditation, especially when your mind wanders. She suggests mala beads -- prayer beads that some people use to meditate -- for beginners because it gives you something tactile to focus on.

"The Mala beads have helped me to not look at my phone as much [and ignore other distractions.] It's just an easy focal point that is good for beginners to help with both the energy and attention and the timing," Ashley Wray - Founder of Mala Collective.
