Meditation reduces stress






Vitiligo is linked to stress!

Did you know that 10 minutes a day of meaningful and heartfelt meditation can reduce stress and rewire your brain?

Find your favorite prayer and say it heartfelt before you start your day.

My favorite prayer before I leave my bed in the morning is:

O Angel of God, my Guardian dear,
To whom God’s love commits me here;
Ever this day, be at my side
To light and guard
To rule and guide.

O sacred heart of Jesus I place all my trust in you.

During the day if you find yourself getting stressed.  Find a place and try to focus on nothing, or a blank piece of white paper, or just look up in the clouds.  One quick way is to focus on your breathing.  Feel the cool air coming in through your nostrils. Visualize the cool air cleansing and lowering your anxiety and any other benefit you can visualize.  As you breathe out, visualize and feel the stress (uncomfortable feeling or negative thought) leaving your body.

Some other methods of meditation are the use of a particular scripture verse or mantra that empowers you which you can repeat over and over, prayer beads or rosary.  I believe these are all great to help your mind focus.  Find out what makes you comfortable and use that to guide you into a peaceful state.

Natasha Pierre McCarthy is the proud founder of Vitiligo Bond Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support and encouragement to individuals with vitiligo. From a vision through teaching as a Christian business professor, Vitiligo Bond was created. We educate through creative forms to patients and the public. Through vitiligo 101 sessions at Emory University with Dr. Holla, special community events, social media, partner support groups, public figures and state leaders we are able to bond and have available support for anyone suffering with vitiligo. Vitiligo Bond has created a path for vitiligo awareness and positive expression. We now have the following states through Governor Proclamations that recognize vitiligo awareness: {Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, & West Virginia}. In addition, Vitiligo Bond has been recognized by Congressman Hank Johnson. Congressman Johnson was also instrumental in our advocacy efforts to help get special recognition during the month of June from our President Obama to recognize and stand together with people who suffer with vitiligo. I believe that God created us for a purpose and everyone deserves the right to have fullness and a quality life. We all have the ability to shine. Vitiligo Bond Inc. is constantly working to raise awareness of the mysterious illness and use their platform in order to fund research that will hopefully lead to the discovery of the cause and a cure for vitiligo.
