@abadesi are you using an app for this by chance? @suzywillow regularly uses Simple Habit
@abadesi @suzywillow @rrhoover Simple Habit is my fav as it has the best collection of guided meditations. @abadesi did you try it?
@suzywillow @rrhoover @aleks_muse I really like Headspace so have little incentive to download something else but will try this out since its so well loved πŸ˜„ TBH its not the app preventing my habit, rather my lifestyle πŸ€“
@suzywillow @rrhoover @abadesi True that. What time of the day is the most optimal for you to integrate meditation?
@suzywillow @rrhoover @aleks_muse I like to do it in the morning before I open my laptop to give me focus and before bed to calm my mind before sleep. I've been trying Simple Habit since yesterday, I like it. The jingle at the start of every session is annoying though.
@abadesi Find the app that works for you :) I also use Oak app, it is very different and focused on simple meditation and breathing exercises.
@abadesi Please tell us if it's health benefit πŸ™
@satwaya OMG it absolutely is! Meditation is an incredibly powerful tool to fight stress and anxiety and improve focus and productivity. It's a bit like your ab muscles though... takes a while to build up and yet lost easily if not maintained πŸ˜‚
I think I'm going to use a combo of Simple Habit for the mornings and Headspace at night - Andy from Headspace's voice is *so* soothing 😴
@abadesi Seems like this is going in on my list too. Had been thinking of doing it, seems about time to actually get started on this. Thanks for all the insights though. Will post how it goes for me.
@mesingh9 I look forward to seeing how you get on! I was camping all weekend for a wedding and got to do some offline meditation sitting in nature, so relaxing 🌳🌳🌳
@abadesi Now you are just teasing me, I want that so badly, been stuck in the city from last 8 months. Not sure when will I be able to take a break.
@mesingh9 Do try and make some time before 2018 ends, its always worth it 😊
