Meditation

Life is rough. What else is new? I have a hard time finding ways to destress. After all, I like to take everyone’s worries and carry them with me as my own. I can’t help it, that is just the way I am wired. Needless to say, that can cause a lot of anxiety to build up over time. Working out helps sometimes, but I can be painfully lazy about it. Plus you can’t exactly run a few miles right before you go to sleep. Writing is typically my go-to activity, but that too can wire my brain in ways that it is hard to shut it off. Recently I have been taking up meditation. At first, convincing myself to dedicate 20 or 30 minutes of time just to put my body and mind at rest was a chore unto itself (I have a gift for fighting with myself). After that initial hesitation, it really worked. Giving yourself a time-out from all the worries of your life (did I remember to pick up dog food? What the hell am I going to do with my life? Why do I keep eating chocolate for breakfast–do I really want to dig myself into an early grave?) is an indulgence you might want to invest in. Want to try meditation? There are a lot of free and cheap meditation apps that you can download. I use Meditation Oasis’s Relax & Rest app.
