Sometimes life gets so messy and stressful that eventually I feel like my thoughts and feelings resemble a bowl of spaghetti - all twisted and mixed up with no clear beginning or end. That's when I know I need to meditate. I would love for my meditation practice to become part of my daily routine. I know it would make my life so much calmer and less stressed... I have an issue with discipline right there! But I'm working on it!
I wanted to share two things that have helped me SO much with my meditation practice.
First of all, the regular 21-day Meditation Experiences run by Oprah and Deepak. I first began meditating with the help of one of these courses. The courses are free and they are really, really good. I find their approach very accessible for someone new to meditation, but at the same time I believe they would have value for someone who has been meditating for years. There is a new course starting on 2 November, to read all about it, or to register click here.
And then a relatively new find, Stop, Breathe and Think. This is such a brilliant app! For those days when I haven't got loads of time to meditate, or I'm just feeling out of sorts and need some guidance, I click on Stop, Breathe and Think and choose a guided meditation. It's a free app and I find it really fresh and user-friendly.
