A few years ago when I was a new nurse, I read Dan Harris’ book 10% happier. In it, he shared how he fell head over heels in love with meditation after being a total skeptic. So I downloaded and used a few meditation apps to calm my nerves before walking into my new job. It was a total lifesaver and I wish I had stuck with it more frequently.
In a world where calm is so needed lately, meditation seems like one of the best ways to ease daily stress and anxiety. I’d also like to mention that it’s not a religious thing, no chants are needed or awkward pretzel-like sitting positions. In fact, I’ve done mediation while walking, and I most recently use it while laying in bed to help me sleep.
Sometimes, a little quieting of the constant chatter in our head is all we need to find the answers to life’s problems.
Check out the 5 best meditation apps I’ve gathered to get you started.
