Keep Calm and Give The Immune System A Boost: Meditate!

As autoimmune moms, we have a *ton* on our plates:  juggling our own autoimmune symptoms (or that of our kids) and overall health, trying to be good moms to our kids, keeping up with the house, cooking, and our family activities.  It sometimes doesn’t seem possible to balance anything else or add anything in.  There are moments when pulling your hair out and screaming at the top of your lungs seems like the most viable option, yet it’s probably not the most helpful solution.

What can you do to effectively combat the stresses of everyday life, and in a way that won’t take hours out of your day?  While many dismiss meditation and its benefits, the reality is that it is actually one of the easiest ways to achieve calm amidst the crazy.  Interestingly, studies show that by just taking ten minutes out of your day, you can achieve fat loss, improved memory, and a better immune system, and those are just a few of the amazing benefits.  To learn more about why you should begin practicing meditation, take a look at this helpful infographic by Skin Energizer.  Try it for a week and let us know if you see any positive changes come about.
