The One Thing I Recommend To Do Daily & My Top Meditation App Picks Most Recent
We are constantly on-the-go. ALL THE TIME. Most days we have to-do lists that are a mile long and we barely get time to ourselves. And on top of that, our stress and anxiety levels are at an all-time high. But if there’s one thing that I recommend doing daily, it’s meditation. Actually, BECAUSE of all of the above, we need to meditate daily.
Taking time to meditate during the day can be wonderful for our minds and bodies. It helps us to focus on the here and now, and to put our stresses and worries to the side (even if only for a few minutes). Who doesn’t want to decrease their stress levels and increase their happiness?
But finding time to squeeze anything else into our schedule can seem impossible, right?
Trust me, I get it. It’s difficult to take time out of our day to meditate. But what if we just added it to our day without having it replace something else? Do you have 10 minutes during your morning commute when you could meditate? Or while preparing dinner? Or how about on your way to the gym? Or before bed (bonus since it’ll probably help you fall asleep faster!) You don’t have to be laying down or sitting still in order to do it (although it would be ideal).
I’ve tried several meditation apps and below are two of my favorite. Give them a try and let me know what you think.
Have you tried any good apps?
(FYI, this is NOT a sponsored post. I just really enjoy these apps and I think they could be helpful for everyone. All opinions are my own.)
- CALM – I am obsessed with this app right now! It has tons of daily meditations (averaging around 10 minutes each) but my favorite part is the sleep stories. Many people (myself included) have trouble shutting our brains off before bed which can leave us tossing and turning. The sleep stories are perfect to help combat this! Give it a try (there are several free meditations and sleep stories available).
- Buddify – I really enjoy this app because the meditations are grouped according to what you’re doing and/or how you’re feeling. For example, there are meditations designed for when you’re feeling stressed or when you’re travelling. They’re short and easy to fit in throughout your day.
