We’ve all heard of the health benefits of meditation. But why is it that so many of us just don’t do it? Even if meditation is for only 10 minutes, or 5 minutes… or just 2. We end up browsing Facebook, or constantly checking emails, or just about anything else instead of taking a second to breath and take in our environment. What is it that stops many students and people in our generation from taking time out of our busy lives to do this?
Well luckily now, there seems to be a great solution to help with this. Calm.com gives you a guided meditation experience that can help you rest in intervals of 2 minutes, 10 minutes 20 minutes, or more.
And the great part? It’s available in a format that so many of us are familiar with, an App!
So the next time you have some time between classes or fraternity or sorority meetings, be sure to check out this app. Maybe it’ll help you focus before your big event or test!
Meditation can be tricky. For many students today, it’s something that’s often overlooked, but medical study after study show the positive benefits of meditation.
So how do you start this habit? It’s not too late. Even if you’re a graduating senior about ready for graduation this Spring, starting on this healthy habit takes just 2 minutes a day.
Today’s post focuses on a post from ZenHabits.net on Meditation (link)
One of my favorite tips from the post is about finding a daily trigger that will be your cue to start meditation. “The trigger should be something you already do regularly, like drink your first cup of coffee, brush your teeth, have lunch, or arrive home from work.”
Do you already meditate? Let us know your tips!
And lastly, if you haven’t already, make sure to order your graduation stoles soon. Average shipping time for graduation stoles is 3 weeks so if you’re graduating in mid-May or June now would be the time to do so to save on shipping costs!
This is an exciting day, not because it’s April 2nd but because we’ve just found a new web site lifehack.org! One of the more interesting posts we came across on the web site was “A Busy Person’s Guide to Keeping Sane!” I personally like this article because it’s a blend of what you’d find on LifeHacker.com and ZenHabits (two amazing sites).
In the post, it talks about how to keep your head together in just one week through these 10 minute drills. Great ways to organize your thoughts in a quick 10 minute rest. Two of our more favorite tips were: 3rd Minute: Have on hand a menu of inspirational quotes or passages that you can choose from every day. 6th Minute: Surrender any grudges and bitterness.
Give it a try when you’re stressed out. Instead of the typical 15 minute breaks of Facebook, TV, smoking, or hanging out with friends, what do you have to lose by trying this? See you at graduation!
