Quite some year’s ago I started trying out meditation in different settings. I’ve done group meditations, listened to guided meditations alone, led meditation in yoga classes, sat down first thing in the morning on my own and completely skipped it for months and months.
The practice appears to have an amazing variety of neurological benefits – from changes in grey matter volume to reduced activity in the “me” centers of the brain to enhanced connectivity between brain regions.
Recently I started trying out a free trial of 10 minute meditations for 10 days from Headspace, and I really like it. It’s easy to use, either on a computer or as an app on a phone or tablet, it’s a short time commitment and for me it’s been a great way of unwinding at the end of the day.
So, if you want to try it out, just click on the link or download the app Headspace and see how it feels for you. Maybe you’ve been longing for a few moments of stillness in your day and just didn’t know how to create it?
