I wanted to make this thread because three different people I know kept encouraging me to do meditation and at first I tried these shitty phone apps but recently it occurred to me that there are probably a ton of guided mediation videos on youtube, and as it turns out, there are.
I have done a 10-minute guided meditation three times this week and I gotta say, it feels great. Two of them I did under the covers on my bed, and the third I did under covers on the couch.
It's hard to find a good time to mediate, I feel like my brain kept making excuses, but once I actually do it, it's just so cool, I love the feeling of becoming fully aware of my body and allowing it to relax and zone out without actually falling asleep. I have to admit, I still keep my phone on me out of nerves about missing something important, but eventually I will just put it on silent and accept that whoever's texting/calling me can wait 10 minutes.
Of course, I hope to do much longer meditations in the near future. I really want to consistently do this now, I'm tired of saying "I'm gonna start doing X now" and then giving up after a few days. I have put it in my phone's calendar/reminder thing to meditate early in the morning.Mindfulness Meditation - Guided 10 Minutes10 Minute Guided Imagery Meditation | City of Hopetl;dr: Does anyone else here meditate, and if so, share your practices, share videos etc.!
