I have dabbled with meditation over the years. I have used light and sound machines as well to help me get into alpha and theta states. Recently I decided to dive back into meditation and establishing a daily practice. I started by using the Buddify app to go through guided meditations and did that for 60 days. That was really enjoyable and I started to see things that I wasn't seeing before. Recently I purchased a Muse brain-sensing headband and have been using that regularly for about 30 days. This blog is a way to keep myself engaged on the journey and share some of my learnings.
I really like the Buddify app. It helped me when being stuck on the tarmac at the airport, when waiting in lines, and any time I had a few minutes to focus on my practice. I travel a lot for work and it became a regular companion on my journeys. I started to really enjoy being stuck in traffic as it offered an opportunity to practice mindfulness.
