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.
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.
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.
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.
