Like most of the world, I’m hearing the word “meditate” everywhere. It has absolutely blown up in the US, probably because most Americans work too much, sleep too little, and eat terrible food. Enter meditation to help alleviate some of those pains. I have become more interested in meditation and mindfulness the past few years but admit I’ve never been great at the actual practice of meditation. My mind always wanders no matter what and I have a hard time relaxing. But I know it’s called a practice for a reason and I intend to do just that for a years to come. Every day I see the positive impact meditation has on me and for sure people are talking about it for a reason.
I did a free trial of the Headspace app and liked it but I didn’t really want to keep paying for it every year. I found another app called Insight timer that is free and community driven and has lots of different free meditations submitted by contributors you can listen to. They usually aren’t as basic and guided as the Headspace ones but I like that. I don’t have to be constantly reminded to breathe, I appreciate the positive messages and more mindfulness I’ve experienced with the Insight timer app.
I’ll keep you all posted on my progress but so far I’m loving it!
Gros bisous (lots of kisses),
