Only 10 minutes

Go to your happy place….. It can only take 10 minutes! Just sit down (I prefer to lay down), and breath. Close your eyes and take nice slow deep breaths through your nose. If your sitting, sit up straight, pay attention to your posture. Relax your whole body with your eyes closed and b-r-e-a-t-h…….! Pay no attention to the outside world. Keep your focus on inside your being. Your thoughts are to be of an image or an interest. Maybe you could hear your heartbeat, listen as you take each breath and stay connected to the sound of your heart beating as you inhale and exhale. If your mind wanders off quickly direct it back into focus. You can do this for ten minutes everyday than make it fifteen minutes. Gradually, you’ll be in a calm meditative state for thirty minutes. Your happy place is you keeping calm, cool and collective during all things stressful. Meditating can help better equipped you for the unexpected overload of crazy….. whatever that may be. It may not be the cure all, but it will definitely help. The brain controls almost every part of your body and since I believe in the body mind connection, meditation can surely help improve your nervous system.

* Did you know that muscles make up forty percent of your body weight? So keep your body moving and add a little strength training into your workouts!

Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you!

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
