Burn A Candle and Meditate!

Did you know that burning candles and meditating is a part of self-care and mental health? Personally, burning candles helps bring me peace and tranquility, especially after a busy day. Additionally, meditating clears your mind and helps reduce stress and anxiety. When you burn your favorite scented candle it creates a soothing effect which stimulates part of the brain that harbors emotions and nostalgia. 

Meditation can also have the same effect. Practicing meditation can give peace, tranquility, and balance, that can be quite beneficial emotionally as well as physically. It has been proven that meditation lowers blood pressure, reduces stress and improves breathing. Trataka is an excellent way to both utilize meditation and candles. Trataka, a gazing meditation, is when you focus on the flame of a candle. This type of meditation helps improve concentration and memory. 

I find it particularly helpful to meditate and burn a candle after I finish showering. For me, showering, automatically helps me relax, including meditation with my favorite scented candles gives me the ability to mellow down and focus more on positivity and less on daily stresses. After this self-care practice, I am more calm, content and relaxed. Go ahead mama, fire your favorite scented candle and meditate, you are definitely worth it!
