This January, I am making a conscious effort to meditate at least once a day, Every Day.
I have used the Calm app on my phone for over a year now, but sometimes I will go weeks without looking at it. I really enjoy this app, it is lovely to use, and the meditations are catered to all sorts of users. www.Calm.com.
I find that meditation helps to ease my anxiety and helps me to focus. I feel less angry and frustrated when I remember to sit and practice, but I do have to set a reminder to meditate daily. I find that mornings work best for me, although I do enjoy a bedtime ‘ sleep story ‘ .
Lately, also I have been getting into listening to audiobooks. I find that I enjoy a listen while I walk the dog or after the night shift. Sometimes I struggle to concentrate on actual reading, especially if I’m tired – so this is a perfect solution for me!
I’m trying to keep a record here, of things that I do, to continue my sobriety, and period of positive mental health, so that I may look back and remind myself of good habits, should I fall into a mental health slump.
I would be interested to learn what other people do to maintain their sobriety or good mental health? ❤
