Meditation helps me stay calm

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:6-7

Hello friends, I hope you are having a nice week!

Today I wanted to tell you a little bit about how well meditation is working for me.

I use a meditation app to guide me through meditations for sleep, or just to deepen my meditation practice by completing breathe control.

Last night during a meditation I realized that I was more aware and focused on my breath, and on my surroundings. I felt very calm and focused.

Many times during the day I feel pressured about getting tasks done where I realize I am experiencing the wear and tear of stress.

Stress can be good stress or bad stress, but too much stress during the day can be bad.

I appreciated that I was in a calm state and my mind was still.

I do practice meditation during the day as well. It has helped me to become calm when I’ve felt reactive and agitated due to come incompetency of my apartment maintenance, or due to spammers using my LinkedIn personal messaging to try and sell me something. As if I am a customer waiting to be contacted by random salespeople.

I believe that due to my regular meditation practice, I have less stressful reactions to people that hopefully add to having energy instead of having my energy drained at times due to negative interactions with people.

There are a few free meditation apps that I use. I will add them here but I get no compensation for publishing them.

Here they are:

  1. Balance app (free for one year)
  2. Medito (free)
  3. Alexa (cost of an Alexa device)
  4. Fitbit (free for limited time)

May your day be calm!
