Why Every Twentysomething Woman Needs to Try Meditation

Meditation guru Gabrielle Bernstein, author of the new book "The Universe Has Your Back", swears this is how to end stress and start getting everything you want.

Cosmopolitan: A lot of people think of stress as a marker of success — it means you're busy and important. But you don't think that way. Why is that?

Gabrielle Bernstein: Stress is actually the number one thing that blocks people from their happiness and well-being and from getting what they want. I think stress is an addiction. It can be tied to work addiction or busyness addiction or success addiction.

Cosmo: It seems people become stressed because they're trying to control everything: their job, their relationships...

GB: They're trying to outrun fear. If you can stay in control of that deadline, then you don't have to be afraid of your boss. If you can stay in control of that relationship, then you don't have to be afraid of being alone. Fear and stress — one creates the other. It's like we're running from lions all day. Letting go of control, that's actually when you're safe. Letting go of stress means that you can enjoy your life. Your skin will get better, you're going to be more attractive, you're more likely to get a job — all the things you want, you will get as a result of being in a more calm place.


Gabrielle Bernstein Shares How To Find Balance In A Busy World

In a non-stop world of overwhelming demands, finding balance can sometimes seem impossible. Writer and speaker Gabrielle Bernstein is on a mission to change that. She's helped readers around the world tap into a greater sense of mindfulness, and her latest book, The Universe Has Your Back: Transform Fear To Faith, is all about strengthening your connection to joy and tossing fear out the window. In a conversation with, Bernstein offered up some of her best advice for finding your center in a chaotic world.

How do you find balance in your busy life, and how would you advise other women to do the same?

The first thing I would share is having a meditation practice. I know that's hard for people to consider at first, but I really believe—and I can swear by this—that even five to ten minutes in the morning can change everything about the rest of your day. Sometimes having balance requires that you be in a centered place, and maintaining that balance requires that you set yourself up to win from the onset of the day.


Motivational Speaker Gabby Bernstein Has A Prayer For Donald Trump

In a Facebook Live interview with The Huffington Post last week, New York Times best selling author and motivational speaker, Gabby Bernstein, shared a prayer for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Bernstein explained to host Jay Shetty that Trump is “the embodiment of separation and the embodiment of attack and judgement.” It’s the opposite of of being on a spiritual path, she said, adding “God bless this unwell being.”

“My prayer for you, Donald Trump, would be for you to have an opportunity to experience the delight and the joy of what oneness truly is,” Bernstein said. “And if you can have that in your life, if you could feel that feeling in your life, then my prayer would be that your division and your separation, your attack, would dissolve with that boundary.”

Bernstein, whose new book, The Universe Has Your Back, teaches about transforming fear into faith, explained that how she’s choosing not to be angry about Trump’s campaign because she doesn’t believe anger should be fought with more anger.

“I think we have to show up and pray,” she said as a way to offer a better way to react to Trump.

The author also offered advice for Hillary Clinton: “I want to see her get real. Get authentic. Get honest because what we long for most right now, in these times, is that sense of connection and that sense of authenticity.”
