The Importance of Meditation in Your Fast-Paced Lifestyle

meditation-1 6N0B1983 copySWISS-12When you get off the subway in New York City you better have a clear destination in mind with a route mapped out or prepare to be trampled by natives who do. Everyone is in a perpetual rush and break is not a common word in our dictionary. After all, this is the city that never sleeps. We’re too busy making dreams come true to find a moment to relax. And I must admit I am no different. With the release of my first fashion line approaching, Boutique On 57 and my raw chocolate business, there is hardly time to catch a wink of sleep. I am constantly traveling to find the latest designer clothing to bring back to you at discounted prices. But as a health educator, I am also well aware of the importance of rest and relaxation, as well as the consequences of the lack thereof. Because I refuse to give up any of my dreams, as none of us should, I have had to find a way to relieve stress in my life that allows me to regain my sanity and focus. How, you ask? One word: meditation. Meditation is a very useful tool to add to your daily routine for multiple reasons and there are multiple techniques. With a little research, you can find the best option for you. Whether it be 45 minutes of yoga, gazing at nature or a short, deep breathing exercise, you will soon find yourself wreaking benefits. Meditation has been known to help with a lot of health-related problems including depression, heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure and general pain. It is the most inexpensive (really, it can cost nothing) treatment for all of these issues and one faced by almost everyone, stress. It is a very simple skill in managing stress and increases self-awareness, allowing us to focus on the present and reduce negative emotions. Perhaps you need to clear your mind before bed to catch a few extra Z’s. Maybe you’ve been searching for a new perspective on a work project. Or you might just be looking to restore your inner peace on your lunch hour. No problem – the benefits of meditation are unlimited so give it a try! KASIA P.S.

I can’t stop bragging about it since I discovered its magical power at Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach Florida. I want everybody to get their juices flowing by drinking wheatgrass juice. Imagine that “life blood” is going through your veins every day deliciously detoxing your body as well as delivering optimum vitality, longevity, and superpowers. I have been experiencing exactly that for the past 6 weeks since I started drinking this miraculous liquid.

I love this feeling and to me looking and feeling energetic is priceless. Its hard to imagine that just 2 oz has so much benefits. Its the highest concentration of chlorophyll, which is the key component of life-force energy. There is a whole meal in just one, two once wheatgrass juice and its equivalent to approximately five pounds of fresh vegetables. I noticed that taste may vary from sweet (at Hippocrates Institute) to a little bitter at various juice places. It all depends on its proper cultivation.

Several documented studies proved that chlorophyll is therapeutic in the treatment of anemia, tuberculosis, arteriosclerosis. Its also effective is tissue growth stimulator and healing agent for numerous types of ulcer and other disorders. It contains 92 of the 102 trace minerals as well as a full balanced spectrum of readily assimilated B vitamins. It assists in reducing blood pressure, purifies liver, and helps wounds to heal faster. 

I fell tremendous energy uplift, positive mood boost, but foremost I was able to eliminate painful menstrual cramps. What a relief!

To an untrained eye the blades of wheatgrass may look similar to the blades of any common lawn grass.  Wheatgrass is grown from the wheat berry, which is the whole kernel of the wheat grain. It is suggested to drink 2oz twice a day, on an empty stomach, allowing 15-20mins to digest before consuming any other food or liquid. Do not mix it with any other fruit to sweeten the texture. Adding a little bit of ginger is acceptable. You may drink small amount of water after your shot. Once juiced, wheatgrass is not stable and tends to go rancid quickly. So its best to drink it within 15 minutes of juicing.  If you drink it to late at night it may keep you awake. For your convenient juicing you can use Omega #8006 juicer to prepare your daily shots at home. You will save a lot of money and can enjoy fresh wheatgrass shots any time you desire.

As you could see this could be ideal coffee substitute to keep you alert, focus but foremost super healthy.

Cheers!
