As I’m sure many of you have read before I’ve been trying to practice meditation. I know that for a lot of people meditation just seems like a lot of sitting and breathing but it’s a lot more than that. For me it gives me a sense of calm and let’s me focus on the things that I love and enjoy. It takes me away from the stresses of life for just a little bit and also helps me to better handle certain situations.
I decided to try meditation since I heard so much about it and the benefits that it has. Sometimes I have moments where I have a lot of anxiety and get depressed and I wanted to try something to help me handle it.
Now I tried many different apps and even YouTube for simple meditation and some worked and some didn’t. The best advice I can give is to start slow. Start with meditating for like 5 mins or less and then increasing time from there.
Currently I use an app for Insight timer and you can use the meditations for free but there is a paid version for $9.99 and includes some really interesting courses. I’ve taken a few that have interested me and they have been pretty helpful.
So try out some meditation practices and start slow. Also don’t get mad at yourself if you lose focus it happens.
So I’m sure that many of you know that last week I was trying my best to only use Instagram for 30 mins a day and surprisingly it is going well. I did noticed that I tend to use my other social media a lot more such as Facebook but I think next week I may put a limit on that as well.
Overall last week I took a good look at my usage and I think I want to try and conquer using my phone less overall. Like I noticed that I tend to pick my phone all the time even when I don’t get a notification. It’s just that I like picking it up. So today I’m going to try and pick it up less.
Plus I’ve actually been trying a new thing this week and that is falling asleep to meditations that work while you sleep. I’ve mostly been listening to self-confidence ones I find on YouTube and they have been pretty cool. They make me very very tired and I kind of feel a difference but I could be wrong so we will see.
I’ve also been trying to journal each night as well to get rid of my feelings that I noticed throughout the day. This is mostly so that I don’t just keep everything inside. But I will get more into that maybe in Thursday’s update since I have a new video releasing tomorrow.
