Do you actually need to meditate to relax?

I get it – sitting up in lotus pose for a long time with your eyes closed is super stressful for many people. How do you know if you’re doing it right? What does “right” even mean? And is your low back supposed to feel like that?

Did you know that meditation and mindfulness aren’t the only way to relax? That you can also unwind from stress in a number of different ways, including petting an animal, getting outside, or humming your favorite song?

If you’re feeling stressed to the max (honestly, who isn’t 😳) and scrolling on social media isn’t really helping – then today’s episode is for you.
