The app Calm focuses on mindfulness meditation with guided meditation daily and also topical meditation series like 7 Days of Calming Anxiety. I have found it amazingly helpful.
There are also Master Classes on things like Gratitude, Mindful Eating, the 4 Pillars of Health, and Sleep Stories (with Matthew McConaughey and John McEnroe reading) that do a great job of helping me fall asleep.
There's also Guided Imagery by Belle Ruth Naperstak.
I make sure to do the Daily Calm every day in the morning and when possible a different meditation as desired later in the day.
Keeps me grounded, calm, less anxiety and stress. Helps me not worry about petty things or get anxious because it also teaches compassion and loving kindness for yourself and eventually to others.
Just do the few minutes on Calm each day and don't judge yourself. The point is to observe without judgment. At times, you may even get into the state of utter peace with yourself and the world.
There is not much to starting but it is difficult if you are not used to sitting still and just allowing yourself to be. Not doing anything just existing.
I like the life situation meditations. But it’s still important to do a class on a theme. It gives your mind the bigger picture. 😃
