Raise your hand if you struggle with meditation. Yeah, me too. Not only do I sometimes struggle to get through meditation session, but any little thing to knock me out of my routine, and meditation is the first thing to go.
What is my meditation routine?
Every morning, I wake up, write in my Five Minute Journal, meditate, and stretch or do yoga. My meditations are always 10 minutes, and that as much as I can handle at the moment.
For the last few months, I have been using the Headspace app. I’m the type of person that needs a guided meditation. Ironically, having something to focus on helps me clear my mind. In the time that I’ve been using this app, I have done one of their foundation packages, and I am currently at the end of their self-esteem package. They also have others that are geared towards discipline, anxiety, etc.
Why do I meditate?
Meditation is a great way to destress and and regain focus. There are mornings when the pressure of all the things you need to get done that day mounts up as as soon as you wake up. More often than not, there will be times where my mind it no longer feels like working, and I have the hardest time concentrating. It is in both if these types of moments that meditation saves me.
Every morning after I meditate, I always feel calm, collected, and even more rested than when I woke up. If you haven’t tried meditating, I highly recommend adding it to your routine.
I know this isn’t exactly Christmas-themed, but I wanted to get back to my regular content a bit during Blogmas. Do you meditate? If so, is there a certain app that you use?
