Meditation Run Streak

I noticed this message after my meditation session this morning. How time flies.

I started using Headspace a few months ago. I had a bunch of projects coming to a head simultaneously. I was out of balance and needed a reset. I could feel real positive changes within a few weeks of starting a daily practice.

My key realisation so far is we’re not our thoughts or our feelings. Meditation teaches how to distance yourself from them and not have your identity interlocked with them. The ramification of that internalisation benefits all areas of life.

I may move on from Headspace to Calm or some of the other mindfulness apps. But my daily practice, that’s staying. I’m enjoying it so much, I recently took up Yoga.

“If you’re too busy to meditate for 10 minutes a day, you need to do it for 20”.
