Q&A Time! Sharing Self Care, Self Care + Anxiety, Meditation Tips

I've had the idea for while now to do a monthly Q&A post, but I wasn't sure if it was something that would be helpful. But after my callout for questions, I was so happy to get your questions and have the opportunity to help you with your self care needs on a more personal level.

My meditation practice is very, very simple. Simple, yet oh so effective. Allow me to share with you my two go-to techniques that keep me calm and mindful. 

Breathe and notice. Those are my two key words I come back to when I feel anxious, doing a task I don't like, or craving some meditation time. When you are wondering how to meditate, your mind wanders in meditation, or you are having a rough moment in life, think "Breathe and notice."
