Meditate for 21 Minutes Everyday


In the previous weeks, we've challenged you with fitness and nutrition challenges to start a healthier lifestyle. This weeks challenge focuses on another signficant factor in wellness - mental health.

Did you know high levels of stress actually increases blood pressure?
An increase in blood pressure greatly increases your risk in heart diseases. Relieving stress is a great way to help decrease the risk and it's as simple as meditating.

According to Jain principles, a Samayik can be done to obtain tranquility, serenity, and mental equanimity. So this week, we challenge you to meditate for 21 minutes every day (or do a Samayik)
