When I close my eyes, the world around me quietens. A soft calmness descends on my mind, which follows my body, on cue, into repose. I had been meditating off and on, till last year I learnt Transcendental Meditation, where, you work with a mantra to guide you into the inner recesses of your mind. Whenever your monkey mind rushes about, the mantra, like a hook, draws you back in.

Why does one need to meditate? In a world where we are so outwardly focused, meditation pulls you back to yourself, and helps you connect not only with yourself, but the world around too. But I encourage people not to feel restricted. Meditation isn’t only about resting quietly on a cushion . For many, a meditative practice can be a walk or a run in the park, cooking, or playing with their children and even pets. It’s a practice that draws you well into the moment, minus all distractions. And how difficult it is to live in the moment!

Ideally, I try and meditate for 20 minutes a day, and perhaps add 10 minutes of japa. To enter into the state of mind, I prefer to meditate when I wake up in the morning, and if I have time, once at dusk, as the sun melts into the ocean.

For the mind and body to focus ‘dhyana’, I sometimes follow rituals, using essential oils, or just after the shower, using a refreshing body wash such as GBS Thai Lemon Grass Cleanser, that’s rejuvenating and refreshing. Settling down on a cushion or in a chair, I direct my mind inwards, on to a mantra, soften my breathing, and for a few stolen moments, reconnect with myself.

Don't we wish that all the toxins in our life could be magically sucked out using a magic wand, there may be no such wand, but there's more beauty product than can, Greek Charcoal Mask. There are mild tingling sensations as the mask literally sucks out the pollution from the pores!. No need to go out when you can have a spa sunday at home.
