"Finding Zen" - What does it mean? Generally, "Zen" is a state of mind - a sense of peace, acceptance and contentment. Finding Zen is a personal journey. Here are 5 tips to help you embark on the journey to finding Zen:
1. DETOX - rid the negativity and toxins in your life. When we dwell on the negative, the things and people that cause our stress and anxiety, we waste precious time and energy and miss out on the present – the HERE and NOW and all of the positivity that exists around us.
2. NOURISH the mind and body. Fuel the mind and be empowered. Never stop learning as knowledge is power. Nourish the body through a healthy diet, lifestyle and exercise routine to improve health and wellness. This includes practicing good hygiene and incorporating a skin care regimen.
3. RENEW – refresh and re-discover your best you. Through self-reflection and meditation, take stock of the role you play in all of the positivity that surrounds you. Learn, grow and build upon it.
4. INNER PEACE – embrace, accept and take responsibility for who you are and not who others think you should be and find peace within yourself.
5. ZEN – take time each day to embody calm, presence, empowerment, self-awareness, peace and contentment and find your Zen.
