Meditation is a great way to relax after a stressful day at work/uni/college/school, or even just a stressful day. As I suffer from anxiety, meditation really helps me to relax, and to clear my head if I'm bogged down by unnecessary thoughts or feelings, and helps me see things more clearly. At first, I really wasn't keen on the whole meditation idea, as all I could picture was monks, whale noises and lotus positions in fields. However, when I saw this app on the iTunes store, I thought I'd give it a shot.
After it downloaded (it's free by the way!), you also got 10 sessions of guided meditation for free. I did the 10 sessions, and I loved it. It was completely free of whale noises and monks, and provided 10 minutes daily of pure relaxation and mindfulness! Each 10 minute session is narrated by Andy Puddicombe, who created Headspace and is also a former buddhist monk. It's so easy to do, and everyone can create 10 minutes a day for this, right?
After going through with the free 10 sessions, I have recently just purchased the monthly meditation. Although it is £9.99 a month (very pricey!), I do truly believe it has such a positive impact on my mental health, so I do recommend it. If you are still curious, just download the app and give the 10 free sessions a try. You never know, you might just fall in love with it as much as I did. And if not, you haven't lost much of your life!
