Zoning-Out To Ocean Meditation CDs Is Positively Youthifying

Zoning-Out To Ocean Meditation CDs Is Positively Youthifying

True sad story: I just went to New York - cray-cray capital of the world - and forgot to bring my trusty CD player and disc of Meditative Ocean: Timeless Pacific Surf with Theta Brainwaves by Dr. Jeffrey Thompson.

By packing lamely, and leaving those behind, I not only broke one of my top New Year's resolutions, I also put myself into a mini state of panic. Unfortunately I suffer from anxiety from time to time, and I like to stay on top of the sitch by zoning-out to the sound of crashing surf. 

But besides keeping the stress dialed-back, I also firmly believe that my little nightly CD player sesh is having a youthifying effect on my whole damn bod.  

I just pulled this little intel-nugget off the Sounds True website, which is where I originally nabbed my beloved surf-noise CD:

Dr. Jeffrey Thompson’s clinical research with thousands of patients has led to groundbreaking discoveries of how sound-frequency patterns built into music can alter states of consciousness and induce mind-body healing. His audio programs are used by Fortune 500 companies, healthcare professionals, and by individuals worldwide.

Okay, so maybe zoning-out to ocean meditation CDs won't erase wrinkles the way retinol will, or even whisk away facial peach fuzz as brilliantly as a Dermaflash, so you don't look like a furry old lady. But mind-body healing is nothing to sneeze at, right? Like isn't mind-body healing totally desirable, and something to strive for? I thought so. 

That's why, instead of drinking gallons of booze with my Gotham gals - sparkling rosé! Champs! Malbec! yummy vegan cocktails at Nix NYC! - I should have just gone on YouTube and ocean-meditated. That's right - I didn't have my ocean CD with me, but that doesn't mean I couldn't have come up a with a solid Plan B and gone on YouTube. 

I could have watched, listened to and meditated with:

This video on YouTube

Or this video on YouTube

Or even this video on YouTube 

My point is that there was no real excuse for me to drop the ball, but I did. There are almost as many ocean meditations on YouTube as there are grains of sand on the beach, and I know that. Of course, they probably don't have the special sauce that Dr. Thompson's CD does - the imbedded Theta brainwaves - but they're still relaxing.

Now that I'm home in sunny FLA, I'm hopping right back on the ocean meditation bandwagon. Just remember: when you're less stressed you look younger. Heck, when you're less stressed you are younger. It's youthifying, so dive on in.
