The Best Meditations for Your Mind, Body, and MoodBy Katrina Scott on
If you’re anything like us, you welcomed the year with an open heart, an open mind, and a commitment to being a bit more mindful in your day to day. The beauty of mindfulness is that it can be unique to YOU — connecting with nature, being more present with your friends and family, or taking five minutes out of your day for a mindful meditation. And that’s why we made it the theme of this week’s TIU2021 challenge. We can all add a little more mindfulness to our routine!
In the Tone It Up App, you’ll find 30+ quick and beginner-friendly meditations, no matter what you’re seeking. Led by Karena Dawn, each meditation has a distinct focus, from self-love to inner strength to boosting your mood. So find a quiet place and simply press play. You’re just five minutes away from a more connected you.
“Inhale love, exhale love...
Inhale gratitude, exhale gratitude...”
— Karena Dawn
