I’m sharing a guest post today from my Joyful Eating, Nourished Life program co-author and fellow Registered Dietitian Alex Caspero on why meditation is the best gift you can give yourself. I began my own meditation journey about 6 months ago after deciding I needed something to manage the endless to do list that was life. While I don’t successfully practice every single day, I aim to most days, and it has honestly made a big difference in my stress and anxiety levels. I know it sounds silly, but before you close out this post and say meditation isn’t for you, give this post about the health benefits of meditation a read.
