My Favorite Podcasts

I’ve had some trouble with podcasts in the past.  The app on my iPhone deleted all of them, so I gave up on listening for awhile.

Meditation Baseline

My New Year’s Resolution – other than blogging every day this year – is to meditate every day.  I tried to do this last year, but unfortunately, I fell off the wagon.

Tingling

Meditation is still something I need to work on.  I’ve been able to meditate every day so far this year, and I’m proud of that.  But sometimes I just can’t keep my thoughts from wandering and bouncing around in my brain.

How I Stay Calm

When I first read 10% Happier by Dan Harris, I was still a bit skeptical about the concept of meditation.  It was intriguing, but I didn’t see how I could practically fit it into my life. School was my main priority.  It wasn’t until I crashed and burned my junior year that I knew I needed to do something.  My anxiety was too much.  So, I reread the book and actually started a meditation practice.  And it’s really helped me manage my anxiety.  It’s nice to know that I can do something to just take a timeout.  I’ve managed to work up to 20 minutes daily, and I’m hoping to increase that time.  I’ve made a new year’s resolution to meditate every day.  I think it’s a resolution I’ll keep.
