hey guys. it's bex. i know i haven't seenyou for a while but i've been working really hard on a new television show that i knowyou're going to love and i wanted to give you something special to say thank you fora 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 everyday for yourself in a quiet spot to rejuvenate and to make sure that you feel awesome. healthand fitness isn't all about moving around and working up a sweat. a lot of it is justtaking the time to be kind to yourself. so we're going to start today with a shortfour-minute meditation on a thought that i
love. every time i'm going to give you a newintention and let me know how you like it and i will just keep doing them, maybe in2013, too. so let's get blissed in. setting our timer for four one-minute intervals. let'sbegin. i want you to find a spot on the floor orwherever you are that you're comfortable and you can cross your legs like me or you cango in to full lotus or you can just have one leg in front of the other, whatever is easyand comfortable for you. place your hands on your thighs or your kneesor if you want to feel a little more energized, go ahead and turn your palms up to receivethe 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'ttry to change it. so if you're breathing a little fast or a little slow, that's ok. we'rejust trying to acknowledge that our breath is there. of course it is. we're alive. isn'tthat an awesome thing? one minute down. now our eyes are closed toblock out the distractions around us. there might be some background noise that happenson this video. there might be something going on around you but i want you to try very hardto focus on your breath, but not too hard because we want this to be easy. visualizing something might help. maybe aflame on a candle. maybe an image of your favorite place. but just continue to focuson your inhales and exhales and go easy on
yourself if you get a little distracted. the intention that i want us to start withis going to be about the physical. i've spent years teaching you how to get the perfectbutt or stronger legs or awesome biceps. so it's ok to work on our physical selves buttoday, 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 whatanyone else thinks about you. it's what you think about yourself but sometimes we're veryhard on ourselves. so let's just take a cue from the people who love us most, who appreciateus, who respect us, who look at us everyday
and think that we're wonderful and imagineourselves to truly be those people because we are. we are loved and appreciated and wonderful. continue with that intention while you takeyour final deep inhales and exhales, bringing more purpose to your breath. following thatbreath from your nose to your seat and back up again in a continuous, beautiful, easyloop. take one last inhale to open your eyes andbring energy back to your body and that's it. that's all it takes, four minutes everysingle day to be kind to yourself and it just stopped beeping. to be kind to yourself andrelax. it's all right. everything is awesome and that is truly all the time you need tobring a little bit of happiness into your
life. let me know how this went. let me know howyou liked it and come back in a couple of days because i'm going to try and do as manyof these as possible before the new year. love you guys always. see you around.
