So today I am going in a little different direction in terms of my post. I want to talk about something that has become such a huge part of my life and sanity. So what keeps me sane? I have one word. Meditation. Now, I know what you may be thinking, who has time for that?! Especially with our crazy schedules, and when we are so connected with the world virtually, how do we find time to meditate? Well, I am here to share a secret with you that can change your perception of peace of mind. I am not telling you to sit down in a quiet corner of a room in total and complete silence for an hour or two. I am just asking you to do yourself and your mind a favor – give yourself 10 minutes. Yes, 10 minutes is all it takes!
Why should you care? For over a year now, I’ve been using Headspace as my meditation go to. Headspace is a meditation app which allows you to practice regular mindfulness. As Andy the voice of all things Headspace says, “Headspace is your very own personal trainer and gym membership for your mind”. Meditation is a great tool to help you become more aware and present in the “now”. Once you can train your mind and yourself to become more mindful, you are more at peace with yourself and any activity you may be doing. You become more aware of your feelings and you can understand how to manage your stress effectively. As we all know, life can be stressful and it’s our responsibility to take care of our own physical and mental health & wellness.
Headspace has been shown to reduce stress, worry, lack of focus, insomnia, relationship problems and many more. This free app allows you to test out a 10 day trial which can give you a glimpse of how the guided mindful meditation works. After the 10 day trial you can purchase a monthly, yearly, two years, or forever membership which gives you access to all of their guided collections. So, head over to the App Store or Google Play and download the best meditation app out there!
After over a year of using headspace, I’ve noticed a difference in how I manage and handle stress. I definitely recommend giving Headspace a try! So, who will join me in this mission to become mindful? Comment below and share your thoughts on becoming more mindful.
