Getting Started with Meditation

Stone TowerPracticed for thousands of years, meditation has surged in popularity recently for the seemingly endless array of health benefits that it is claimed to provide. Although there are numerous styles of meditation – mindfulness, Zen, guided, and chanting to name a few – they can all be used to feel more at peace, experience less stress, and to improve self-control. With meditation’s rise in popularity there has been a sharp increase in research on how it affects practitioners, with studies showing that the emotional benefits of meditation assist people in all kinds of ways, from helping to manage the stress-related symptoms of illnesses like high blood pressure and anxiety disorders, experiencing more compassion and love for others, boosting creativity, to even reducing perceived levels of pain.

Stick to What is Comfortable for You
There are many different forms of meditation, and it can be overwhelming to know where to begin. Although different types of mediation can produce different results, the variety that you most enjoy practicing will be the most effective. You may want to try out a few different styles to see what is most comfortable for you, and sticking with what is comfortable is the best way to ensure that you will make it a part of your regular schedule.

Don’t Eat Beforehand
While it may sound pleasant to meditate after a meal, chances are a full stomach will make you too sleepy to make the most of the exercise. A relatively empty stomach allows you to devote your attention to the task at hand, so plan your meditation time accordingly.

Wear a Relaxed Smile
Keeping a positive expression on your face can help you to feel more positive as well. Meditation is more effective when you can stay calm and relaxed throughout – so make sure to practice when you are in a happy state of mind.

Breathing provides a rhythm to your meditation practice, which in turn helps you to focus. To make sure you are breathing as easily as possible meditate in a place with clean, fresh air – such as the beach, a park, or in your own home. Our Ultra Quiet air purifiers make a great meditation companion, as they will not only remove harmful toxins and pollutants from the air, but in their whisper Silent modes you will forget they are even there, allowing you to focus on your breath and your health.  If you are not partial to silence, mediate to your favorite soft music.

So what are you waiting for?  Follow us down the meditation rabbit hole to better health and happiness.

Introducing the BioGS 2.0

biogs2_gallery6Since its debut in 2006, our BioGS air purifier has been providing excellent filtration and allergy relief for thousands of customers throughout the United States and even around the world. Although the original BioGS has been extremely popular, one of Rabbit Air’s core values as a company is the belief that we should always be looking for new ways to improve ourselves and our products.  With that goal in mind, we set out to revamp the BioGS and make it even better than before.  We listened to the opinions of over three thousand customers to see where they saw room for improvement, and we searched far and wide for the latest technology and the most modern, stylish design.  Finally, we are proud to introduce our new BioGS 2.0!

biogs2_gallery8Our BioGS 2.0 starts with the advanced, efficient filtration technology that you have come to expect from Rabbit Air.  The BioGS 2.0 has a four stage filtration system, including our bio-engineered HEPA filter and our Charcoal Based Activated Carbon filter that uses real pellets of porous charcoal.  Taking our next cue from our customers, we updated the user interface of the BioGS to be even more user friendly and easy to use.  The BioGS 2.0 is a smarter machine than before – with new features such as an adjustable Automatic mode and a filter replacement countdown so you always know how much life is left in your filters. Our unique display makes each function easy to understand, and will automatically dim after five minutes to reduce light pollution.  To wrap all these features in an exciting package, we went to Brazilian designer Guto Indio da Costa, who created a whole new look for the BioGS that was sleeker, more sophisticated, and that embodied the idea of “flow.”  We are excited to present the new BioGS 2.0, and we hope that you will love it just as much as we do!
