Let's face it - I am like a squirrel running around all day trying to get #allthethingsdone. People who know me can testify that! And let me just tell you, it's not working out well. I end up doing 5 things at once (seems productive at first, right?) and never end up finish even one! Super annoying!
Early this year I listened to an audiobook called 'Miracle Morning' and they recommended meditation as a method of focusing your mind daily and to continue that focus throughout the day. It also helps see things clearly and instill a feeling of peace and gratitude...so I searched for the best app and tried a few.
I finally came across 'Simple Habit' and I freaking love it! I try to now meditate at least once a day for 5-10 minutes. It seems counter productive to take time out of our busy schedule to literally sit still and do nothing but listening and breathing - but soon you'll notice that the opposite is true - you gather your mindfulness and focus and you actually function better and more balanced for the rest of the day - it's practically magic. Still squirrel but not as bad, and believe it? I ACTUALLY get shit done these days (like this blog post).
Since I am more than grateful for having come across this simple change in my daily routine I had to share! I try to get my meditation in as part of my morning routine right before I write my gratitude journal = it's an amazing combo to start your day out on a super positive note!!
When I feel the need, I do another practice during my little one's nap time - it brings my focus back on a crazy day and just gives my mind a timeout - so needed, right, Mamas?
My part of the app is actually a little wheel that touches all areas of your day that you might need a meditation for and you can pick from 5 - 20 minutes depending on how much time you have.
I sooooo want you to try this out - you will see a difference in just one or two practices.
Check here what science says about meditation:
You can explore many different series of meditation practices and save them to your favorites so you can continue them daily. It's an amazing way to address any area of your life that you'd like to improve!
