It is easy to get caught up in the momentum of the day and keep pushing through when we actually need to rest and reset.  This brief guided meditation helps reboot and reset the body and mind.

By just taking a moment to breathe, you can release all your negativity. No matter what you're going through, just breathing and focusing on that breath is how you can help overcome obstacles.

85%
I've learned to function at about 85% of my max everyday while making it look like 110%. Blindly stumbling through each day always heavy and tired has become my way of life but it's not living. It's just surviving. Survival is important but it's a low bar. I want to rejoin the living. To do that I must remind myself to make time for me. To not just sleep but rest because time spent on me is never a waste.

Great sleep aid
You can feel your body weigh down as you breathe. It is a very useful tool to ease down and relax after a long, and stressful day at work.

Feeling stressed to the maximum at times can cause very strong anxiety but this Aura session made me come to a calm moment and felt very good!

Grounded
Sometimes all you need to do is to just physically feel your surroundings in order to feel a little more grounded and in the moment.

Busy lives don't equal fulfillment
I learned that it's actually on my quiet time that I feel most fulfilled and can focus. Being "busy" doesn't mean I'm doing the things I want or should for fulfillment

It helps to feel your body relax to the point that you can nod off to sleep. This is a great focus relaxation before bed.

I like the image that every exhale is an opportunity to rest. It gives me a way to appreciate how I actually am continually getting a break, even on the busiest of days. Namaste

It felt like a rest, also a great addition to the meditations that I should be practicing. Which I’m, I should start doing again.

Resting is more than just trying to sleep. It’s practicing a mindful letting go of the day.

Achievement
I learned that the idea of achievement is a great concern for me. By traditional standards, I am not necessarily an over achiever, but I realized that I am worried by the idea of not achieving enough. This. Triggered me specifically during this mediation, and unexpectedly. Something that I will have to learn to let go of.

Inviting your body to sink into its support and just rest. Taking time to relax our bodies and minds in so important. Many times we push ourselves but, it is healthier for our overall wellbeing to let go and just enjoy being.

Releases and Relax
I need to remember to release the stress and relax my mind when I receive anxious news at work. I need to take my time, relax, and know that I will get things done in timely manner. I do not need to put undue pressure on myself. Just relax and know you got this.

Focus
I learned that allowing time to just let go and ease your mind in the process of homework or late night projects is healthy and necessary to take a breath and ease back into your assignment with full focus

What you are resting on
I struggled to connect with this meditation. My mind kept wandering back to finances. And I realized my posture sucks. Grrrrrrrr. I kept bringing my focus back, which was good. Frustrating that my posture keeps slipping back into a slumped, heart protecting posture. *Sigh* I liked coming back to what I was resting on, that did help me to keep coming back to the meditation and to remember that every time I meditate it helps me connect to myself.
