Im thinking of taking it up, anyone here tried it? If so can you tell me how it worked for you?
Yes and it Def helps. Now I never did classes. But I practiced vipassanna meditation on YouTube it is mindful meditation and definitely helped me with anxiety. There are several types of meditation, check out YouTube. Put in some hear phones and give it a try
I tried it once, years ago. It didn’t work out well for me. Then I tried a form of meditation that involves some light yoga, and that REALLY worked wonders.
Im happy to try it if it helps with anxieties, i just found some of it on google quite corny would like some down to earth type
Yeah light yoga has worked in past for me but stopped it when i twisted ankle and never got back into it
Vipassanna is some of the most down to earth meditation you can do. It’s all about finding your inner self. It teaches you how to let anxiety, thoughts, in and let them go
Also if you try any form of meditation. You have to actually be open to it. Like anything in life, you can’t try it once and decide you dontlike it. Did you like your first, to ten days of sobriety? Probably not lol. So with meditation you haveto try it atleast two weeks to a month to see benefits
It cant hurt to try ive got the time so im open to it right now to be honest, is there a certain youtuber you prefer or just search vipassanna up?
I use headspace app as I really like the voice of the speaker. Otherwise is use breathe app. This helps me a lot and quickly as I am a big thinker so it is really difficult for me to focus.
I did biofeedback and told her that I even have difficulty to stay in savasana as I cannot let go. But slowly it gets better.
Is it an iphone app or samsung app? I will try them could be really good im a big thinker
Thanks for this man ill try it
I have Android. But I guess it’s available for ios as well.
No problem dude. There is many different meditation. I’ve also tried wimhoff which is ok too, I’ve tried mantra. I like vipassanna bc it is a silent meditation and I can hear my self. Mantras are guided and throws my mind off. Also, cold showers r fun they also help with anxiety. I really got complacent in alot with my sobriety and stopped doing alot. Which isn’t good we have to work are recovery every day
Ive been trying sleep meditation it was working originally but not so much now so wanna try a different style
I do a mindfulness meditation practice for about 10 minutes each day. I use the Waking Up app. It’s really helped to keep me grounded throughout the day. Which helps to keep my anxiety at bay and helps stop me from getting swept away by my thoughts.
I can try that one aswell see if it blends well for me thanks man
I’ll PM you a link for a free month trial
Yeah thanks man
