April was stress awareness month, and so I decided to challenge myself to meditating every day for the month. It was easy to keep track, as the Headspace app keeps my day streak, and tells me every day. I have noticed I feel so much better when I spend time every day quieting my mind. Most days I did the 1-3 minute sessions, as I would do it prior to going into work. Even those I couldn’t get enough of. Just breathing, helped me notice how tense my shoulders get. Each day, I was able to drop them and feel a little more at ease. I definitely will continue practicing this each day, especially as we enter into Mental Health Awareness month.
Mental Health Awareness month is something I encourage everyone to celebrate, and take time to notice their own mental health. We all have mental health, and we should all be doing what we can to make sure we are able to do our best. This month, I’m going to try and get back into my routine of hitting the gym (I was unable to this week due to a family issue), and incorporate yoga and more meditation. I’m also aiming to read more, and spend more time working on myself. I’ve recently been having more people come into my life who have similar mindsets as me, and who help me be the best me. I want to attract more people like that into my life, so each day, I’ll be spending time journaling, writing for this blog, exercising, and meditating. I encourage all of you to do the same.
I also plan to try and make this a routine, and have a post each week. I’m unsure of what day, and unsure what the topics will pertain too, but I’m going to do it.
