New month, new challenge!

This month I want to concentrate on a healthier mindset and therefore get back into my beloved mediation.

I’ve been a big meditation fan for years now and have been very consequent with practicing it every day last summer. My run streak was 76 days until one day, I’ve been so busy and totally forgot about it. Ever since then it has become harder to get back into a routine, especially from Friday to Sunday, when I am off Uni.

But, we are here to make changes, right?

Since I am taking my finals this month (urghhh) I think it’s even more important to have a calm mindset, stay focused and take deep breaths.

I am going to be taking the 30-Days Letting Go of Stress Course by Headspace. Perfect for the upcoming stressful weeks.

Now, I know not everyone wants to sign up and pay for a meditation course. Therefore I am challenging you to download a mediating app (e.g. Headspace, Calm or The Mindfulness App; You can also go on YouTube and do guided meditations, if you’d like to. Headspace has a YouTube Channel as well: click here) and do one of their free beginner courses for 10 Days. Just 10 days. One meditation a day.
It can be hard at the beginning, I know that but you will benefit from it very quickly and I couldn’t live without my Headspace anymore, really.

Another person telling you to relax and take deep breaths, helps so so so much!!

So, who is ready to do some meditation??

  1. Franzi, this is such a great challenge! I didn’t have the focus to concentrate on meditation lately, which is obviously exactly why I should do it more. Unfortunately I’ve already been through the ten day Headspace course, and I love them, but as it’s so familiar by now it doesn’t really do much for me. And as I need to save money for now, I won’t be able to get a full subscription. So maybe I’ll do the challenge, just at a later point! For now, I’m excited to follow your experience with it! Love, Sandy

    1. I know exactly what you mean, Sandy. I’ve been using Headspace for over four years now and just got the full subscription last summer…the beginner course can definitely get a bit repetitive if you went through it a few times already. But I am sure you will find the right way to include mediation into your routine 🙂 😊 thank you for everything!!

  2. Same here! I have been trying to stick meditation on my habit board for slightly over a month now. I’ve been learning manually from Ajahn Brahm’s book Mindfulness, I read the abridged version first, and now am in the middle of reading the full version. I must say that I didn’t expect that meditation would be this hard!
