They med­i­tate

Glamour (South Africa) - - Health -

From CEOS to celebri­ties such as Lena Dun­ham and Emma Wat­son, more and more peo­ple are turn­ing to med­i­ta­tion. “It’s the ultimate tool for well­be­ing,” says med­i­ta­tion prac­ti­tioner Jody Shield. “You can do it any time – for free – and it can help to trans­form tired and low feel­ings.”

Now steal it

“We’re all busy – so 10 min­utes is enough,” says Jody, who gave up a high­pow­ered job in ad­ver­tis­ing to study med­i­ta­tion and re­train as an al­ter­na­tive ther­a­pist. “At lunchtime I shut my lap­top, close my eyes, take deep breaths and imag­ine I’m look­ing di­rectly at the space be­tween my eyes. It might feel weird at first, but it helps re­set the brain to make you feel less stressed.”
