Today I have the great pleasure of being the host here in Santa Monica, CA, USA on Day 6 of the Virtual Blog Tour of author Carolyn A. Brent, whose book, “Transforming Your Life through Self-Care: A Guide to Tapping into Your Deep Beauty and Inner Worth” is celebrating its big Worldwide book launch on May 8, 2019.

CAROLYN A. BRENT is an award-winning bestselling author and a National Physique Committee (NPC) Masters Women’s Figure Champion at age 60. She is an expert on both self-care and caregiving; she is the founder of Across All Ages and two nonprofit organizations, CareGiverStory Inc. and Grandpa’s Dream. Carolyn’s written works are in the Library of Congress the libraries of Harvard, Stanford, Johns Hopkins, and numerous other medical centers and universities.

Yesterday, Carolyn visited Brenda Adelman in San Diego, California, USA where she interviewed Carolyn on the subject of red flags, self-care and connection between health/money

Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Carolyn when I asked her about the subject of Meditation, Self-care and Daily life. I hope you enjoy it.


ANDREA HYLEN: Why is it important to make time for meditating?


CAROLYN A. BRENT: Just think about it. When was the last time you stopped
just for a moment to breathe or take a time-out to care for yourself mentally,
emotionally, and spiritually by just doing nothing except being quiet and living in the moment?

2018_Head_Shot_MG_6374In today’s fast-paced world, it is so easy to get caught up with your long to-do list and family, health, financial, career, and other pressing obligations. And technology keeps us connected 24/7, to the extent that we don’t even unplug when on vacation or sleeping.

Because of this, we frequently forget to stop and reflect on our own mental and spiritual well-being. As a nation, we have become far too busy or technology-obsessed to take the time to recognize the importance of nourishing, rebuilding, and connecting our mind, body, and spirit.

However, people who use meditation practices throughout the world report an
improved attitude toward life and reduction of issues like stress, anxiety, and
depression. Meditation also is being used to help people quit smoking as well as other addictive behaviors.


ANDREA HYLEN: What are some tips on how to incorporate meditation into self-care when our lives feel so full of things to do?


CAROLYN A. BRENT: Great question, you have to make the time. Here are seven easy steps you can take to begin meditating now:

  1. Schedule at least two to three minutes a day when you first start. Then slowly add additional time.
  2. Choose a consistent time so you can develop the habit of meditating daily.
  3. Find a quiet and comfortable space. Minimize light exposure. I highly suggest starting out in the sitting position to learn.
  4. Be sure that you are hydrated and have gone to the bathroom.
  5. Practice your breathing. Notice how you feel when the air is moving through your nostrils and pay close attention between inhaling and exhaling.
  6. Incorporate free-guided meditations online to help get you started. Sites like the Chopra Center have great ones.
  7. Discover which type of meditation is best for you, and master it.


ANDREA HYLEN: How can we take our meditation practice into our daily life and turn down the noise and busyness?


CAROLYN A. BRENT: Early in my career, I had the pleasure of meeting a very busy thought-leader in the medical field at a national conference. The doctor talked about the importance of self-care by incorporating meditation.

After the conference, I asked the doctor, the same question you are asking me.

This is what she said; “I give myself one hour every day to just take care of “me.” I do not share my “me” time with anyone. That’s my time to exercise, meditate, relax, sleep, and do whatever I need to do for me. That’s how I refuel my self-care engine. She emphasized, when you take the time to meditate– that’s when you will experience balance.”


I hope you enjoyed this interview with Carolyn A. Brent and that you’ll check out her book on May 8, 2019:
