September Mind + Body Challenge: Meditate Daily

Between moving, work, and starting a teaching job, July and August were stressful months for me. I had started learning a meditation practice in June but quickly abandoned it when things got stressful. (Which is kind of the opposite of the point of meditation.) I need meditation when I’m the most stressed!

I used to think meditation was for hippies, or that it was something people did to make themselves feel superior (like Jen Kirkman did in this clip from Conan below).

But when I tried meditation (finally) I was pleasantly surprised by how it helped my anxiety and stress levels almost immediately. I used an app called Headspace, which offers daily guided meditation. I liked Headspace, so I am going to use this app during this challenge (until it asks me to pay money for it, ha!).

Goal for this challenge

Practice meditation for 10 minutes daily. I will use Headspace to keep track.

  1. Very cool! I have “Headspace” in the past, but find the service very expensive. And, after a few modules, I get kinda bored with it all. If the price came down a bit, I would justify the expense. Other than that, I myself find it difficult to sit myself down long enough to meditate. Minfulness is a bit more easy since it is done on the go.

    Anyway, great blog and I look forward to future articles.
