  • Hey guys. It's Bex. I know I haven't seen you for a while but I've been working really

  • hard on a new television show that I know you're going to love and I wanted to give

  • you something special to say thank you for a wonderful year and to leave you feeling

  • awesome in 2012. I have a new series for you. It's called You Have Four Minutes for Meditation.

  • [Music]

  • I want you to take just four minutes every day for yourself in a quiet spot to rejuvenate

  • and to make sure that you feel awesome. Health and fitness isn't all about moving around

  • and working up a sweat. A lot of it is just taking the time to be kind to yourself.

  • So we're going to start today with a short four-minute meditation on a thought that I

  • love. Every time I'm going to give you a new intention and let me know how you like it

  • and I will just keep doing them, maybe in 2013, too. So let's get blissed in. Setting

  • our timer for four one-minute intervals. Let's begin.

  • I want you to find a spot on the floor or wherever you are that you're comfortable and

  • you can cross your legs like me or you can go in to full lotus or you can just have one

  • leg in front of the other, whatever is easy and comfortable for you.

  • Place your hands on your thighs or your knees or if you want to feel a little more energized,

  • go ahead and turn your palms up to receive the energy in the room.

  • Next I'm going to ask you to close your eyes. Really, close your eyes with me.

  • Start to bring attention to your breath. Don't try to change it. So if you're breathing a

  • little fast or a little slow, that's OK. We're just trying to acknowledge that our breath

  • is there. Of course it is. We're alive. Isn't that an awesome thing?

  • One minute down. Now our eyes are closed to block out the distractions around us. There

  • might be some background noise that happens on this video. There might be something going

  • on around you but I want you to try very hard to focus on your breath, but not too hard

  • because we want this to be easy.

  • Visualizing something might help. Maybe a flame on a candle. Maybe an image of your

  • favorite place. But just continue to focus on your inhales and exhales and go easy on

  • yourself if you get a little distracted.

  • The intention that I want us to start with is going to be about the physical. I've spent

  • years teaching you how to get the perfect butt or stronger legs or awesome biceps. So

  • it's OK to work on our physical selves but today, I want you to think one thought. I

  • want you to imagine yourself as beautiful, as the person who loves you most thinks that

  • you are.

  • We often hear that it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks about you. It's what you

  • think about yourself but sometimes we're very hard on ourselves. So let's just take a cue

  • from the people who love us most, who appreciate us, who respect us, who look at us everyday

  • and think that we're wonderful and imagine ourselves to truly be those people because

  • we are. We are loved and appreciated and wonderful.

  • Continue with that intention while you take your final deep inhales and exhales, bringing

  • more purpose to your breath. Following that breath from your nose to your seat and back

  • up again in a continuous, beautiful, easy loop.

  • Take one last inhale to open your eyes and bring energy back to your body and that's

  • it. That's all it takes, four minutes every single day to be kind to yourself and it just

  • stopped beeping. To be kind to yourself and relax. It's all right. Everything is awesome

  • and that is truly all the time you need to bring a little bit of happiness into your

  • life.

  • Let me know how this went. Let me know how you liked it and come back in a couple of

  • days because I'm going to try and do as many of these as possible before the new year.

  • Love you guys always. See you around.

Hey guys. It's Bex. I know I haven't seen you for a while but I've been working really
