5-Minute Meditations: Peaceful Place

The 5-Minute Meditations series was created to help us fit in time for meditation, relaxation, and looking inward – even when we’re busy. You guessed it, meditations are usually 5 minutes or less, meaning only .04% of your day. The 5-Minute Meditations series is a great introduction to meditation for beginners, and a helpful resource for more experienced practitioners.

While a tad longer than 5 minutes (bonus!), this guided visualization will guide you through a place of serenity, while experiencing it through all of your senses.

Before You Begin

You may wish to practice this in the morning, on your lunch break, or after a long day to de-stress. Before starting, find a comfortable seated position or even feel free to lie down – find the position that will be most comfortable and peaceful for your practice today.

And remember: anything that happens in this meditation is perfect. Thank yourself for taking this time for you.

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder in the United States and is estimated to effect almost 16 million people nationally.* Despite this, most feel uncomfortable talking about the struggles they face around eating because of the weight-biased society we live in, resulting in many who continue facing a clinical illness without a clinical diagnosis for treatment.

The Binge Eating Diaries: Now I Want To Be Strong

By on 09/23/2015

Do I want to be strong? You mean strong-willed? So that I don’t overeat? Um, yes. I have been striving for that my ENTIRE life. No? Hmmm… Oh!
