Good Morning! I hope you all are getting back into the swing of things after the holidays! It takes me the whole month of January to do so! January is also the month that I like to try to make some changes – not resolutions. I had mentioned last month that I spread myself too thin and needed to re-evaluate my work schedule and load. After taking on too much during the holidays, I am ready for a new year and a new lifestyle! 

Learning more about meditation

I went to California for a small conference for women in their midlife back in October and got to meet and hear a man named David Ji, a stress management expert and meditation master, speak. After twenty years in finance, David began a new journey to wholeness at The Chopra Center. There, he trained more than 20,000 people to meditate. He led us through a meditation class and made me want to learn more about meditation and how it can help me manage my stress. His new book,“Destressifying” is on the top of my New Year reading list!

Transitions lenses keep my eyes comfortable

This year, I am trying to slow down and read a bit more, and am so glad that I have my Transitions lenses to help me see clearly. When the days are nice, I like to take advantage of the weather and sit on my screened-in porch to read a book or magazine. My Transitions lenses keep my eyes comfortable so I can enjoy reading day or night without needing to change my glasses. Gone are the days of carrying around readers for indoors and sunglasses for outside. Transitions lenses automatically adapt to changing light, optimizing the amount of light that reaches the eyes to keep them comfortable in every situation. They adapt quickly so that your lenses are clear indoors, and dark when you’re outdoors. Even when I’m enjoying my screened-in porch, my Transitions lenses darken a bit in response to the sunlight. 

If you have followed this blog and read about Transitions lenses before, you know that these lenses are designed to reduce the exposure to harmful blue light indoors and out. Whether you are getting light from the sun or from your digital devices, Transitions lenses help manage the light in your life and protect your eyes while doing so!

I hope I can adhere to slowing down, meditating, praying, and just being still more this new year. Do you all have any of those same goals? I would love to hear what or how you are doing this.
