Welcome to month five in my year-long series of Mission 2011 posts.
As you know, I am in search of my "sweet spot" through the optimal combination of self-help techniques for managing my fibromyalgia symptoms. So far, we have covered the topics of making activities more fibro-friendly, using symptom logs, planning for special events and exercise. By the way, if you have missed any of my posts, just click on the words Mission 2011 above to get caught up.
Now I don't know about you, but lately I seem to be going through a rough patch with way more stressors in my life that I would like. Which got me thinking about adding more activities to my daily routine to help me combat stress and promote my overall well-being. Things like meditation and using my emWave Personal Stress Reliever.
Given my current situation, I decided this would be the perfect time to explore this subject further in my Mission 2011 posts.
Now I know that mediation can be good for me, but I often struggling with trying to consistently practice it. Turns out I'm not alone. I stumbled across a fun and helpful resource to get me back on track that I am going to share with you today. It's a website called HEADspace. They partnered with the British-based Guardian newspaper earlier this year in a series to make meditation more accessible to everyone.
I really like their approach, which strives to make meditation practical, easy and bite-sized. So I've included their Start Happy introduction to meditation video from the Guardian website below. I also encourage you to visit their website and get started with the Tools and Techniques section like I did.
For those of you in England (or inclined to travel there), HEADspace offers in-person training too.
Enjoy this kick-off to a month of exploration on the topic of meditation. Cheers!
