“Cue gong sound” OMMMMMmmmmmmmm and cheers. Welcome to this weeks prime and wine post.
I wanted to feature my newest edition to my meditation practice and that is my meditation pillow. I think it has made a difference in my practice because it helps my posture and it is my specific spot that I can put where ever I need to meditate. I feel like I can take my pillow and put it anywhere and it almost helps my mind get ready to meditate. Like a light bulb goes off in my head like oh ok you’re on your pillow time to meditate. Kind of like your evening routine that sets your mind up for rest. These cues help that process a lot.
I wish I could tell you I had this glorious meditation practice where it was absolutely perfect and I did it every day. I do not. I am still learning and trying to develop a daily practice. I know going through YTT (Yoga Teacher Training) will help me so much. I am looking forward to that. I notice a big difference when I am consistent. I have done 5 days in a row for a few weeks and it was awesome but again, I would like to get to the point where it is daily. I use the calm app. It is my favorite meditation app right now. I have tried others and this one is my favorite. I like the daily meditations they have on the app. Its a 10 minute meditation and is the perfect amount of time for me and I feel oh so good. They have sleep sections where you can pick a story out that someone has narrated for you to fall asleep to. I love using this when my husband is out of town because I do not sleep well when he is gone. Matthew McConaughey actually narrated a book on the app. They have a meditation section if you don’t want to do the daily one that is cued up. They also have a section dedicated to music. Some people don’t like the voice cues but I personally prefer that right now because it keeps my mind from wandering off. I am going to link an article I posted on Facebook of the 13 reasons why to meditate. I think you will really enjoy it if this is something you are doing or wanting to do.
I paired this weeks purchase with a fabulous white blend from a favorite winery of mine near Bend Oregon. The winery is called Faith, Hope & Charity vineyards. The white blend is a blend of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. It is light bodied and will please any palate. It is slightly sparkling which I really enjoyed and has a fruity bouquet of apricots and and undertone of apple. It comes in this beautiful refillable bottle.
Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!
Heres a silly pic of Brooke and I because she wanted to be loved on while we were trying to find the perfect spot for the photo.
