THIS WAS A HARD TOPIC FOR ME TO SHARE WITH YOU.
Hello dear ones!
Today is a very personal blog that I felt compelled to share with you and how a certain product is changing my life. In sharing, I hope I can possibly help another.
For about 19 years, I have suffered from depression since experiencing a debilitating post partum after the birth of my first child. The depression was severe and even at one point, I feel embarrassed to share, that I contemplated suicude. During this time, I felt ashamed to be in such a dark place. I felt ashamed to not be able to help myself. I felt ashamed in the thought of taking pharmaceuticals. I tried therapy in which I would sit with the professional with nothing to say but shrouded with an overwhelming cloud of sadness. I stayed committed to exercise and a healthy diet. I attempted meditation and it's different practices in which I was just unable to stop my head or commit to a long term practice.
Years later, I am now managing my mental state with the help of an anti-depressant and constantly monitoring things in my life. I am happy to say that now the good days are better than the bad. However, now that I am entering perimenopause I have begun experiencing horrible anxiety, a common side affect of this change. Overwhelmed by these emotions, I have felt compelled more than ever to meditate, an intuitive calling. Meditation has always appealed to me but I just ended up wasting money on apps and classes that just did not work for me.
Today I write this blog because I found something that finally works and I want to share it with everyone! For the first time in my life, I am meditating 1-2 times a day.
"Meditation, which is the practice of focused concentration, bringing yourself back to the moment over and over again, actually addresses stress, whether positive or negative. Meditation can also reduce the areas of anxiety, chronic pain, depression, heart disease and high blood pressure and provide relief to your immune system. Meditation is easing the day-to-day stress of a body constantly trying to protect itself. The prediction is that this would then lead to healthier aging."
I am honored to introduce you to the Core Meditation Trainer. I'm so excited to share this product with you!
What is Core? It is Meditation you can feel.
What I love about Core is that it pulses alongside your meditation sessions. Depending on the type of session, the vibrations will guide you in breath technique training or serve as a gentle reminder to help focus your attention. For me personally, the vibration greatly helps my focus! It gives me a job for my brain to help bring in the calm.
Build your own ritual.
I love the diversity of classes that the Core Studio offers. Breath training and guided meditations are directly focused on a specific emotion, desire, sleep, etc. The majority of the classes are guided by AMAZING instructors. In addition, you can choose to do your meditations unguided to music or without while the device monitors your progress. Unique daily meditations are a treat and guest instructors are brought in for diversity. You will never get bored of the options.
What I love most is that it tracks my progress!
It is so cool! For someone who is goal oriented like me, it makes this process so rewarding. It tracks your heart rate and your HVR, essentially monitoring your nervous system aka. stress. I am always in awe of the Calm and Focus monitoring, how does it do it?! Days that I have felt more stressed, my calm and focus has been known to be zero minutes during a 7 minute meditation! haha
My Personal Feedback
Since first receiving, I haven't stopped using the Core. It has been 2 months now. It is incredibly rewarding, fun and the fact that I love a progress challenge speaks to my personality. My husband is now also meditating for the first time in his life. In regards to my mental state, it has been a blessing beyond. Moments when I feel bad, I now depend on Core to breathe in some calm, lower my heart rate and aide in shifting my mood. It has been an absolute blessing and I feel downright proud of myself. My calm and focus is slowly coming along but I know that meditation is a practice and with time it will improve.
I love this company so much that I have begun a relationship with them and feel blessed to share this product with my friends, family and the world. I feel blessed to have found something to ease my moods. I am more patient and calm in my daily life, for this I am truly grateful to Core.
