My Month Of Meditation

A Month Of Meditation

In December I did something crazy. I decided to meditate every day. The crazy thing about this is that I never believed in meditation. I always thought it would be a scam and just for “crazy” people but I recently read this book called 19 Days of Mindfulness. In the book, there is a chapter about the basics of Meditation and how it is great for creative people and it inspired me to try it on my own.

My first try was really relaxing so I decided to try developing a meditation habit during the month of December to survive the exhausting exam season. At the beginning, I sat down, set a timer for five minutes, and did not do anything but counting my breath. When I was done it felt a little bit like waking up in the morning totally relaxed.

After a week I got this app called Headspace. It has a lot of guided meditations for many different situations. You have to subscribe to unlock every class but you can take the first basic class for free and it helped me a lot to learn a bit more about meditation and how to actually do it. I really liked these guided meditations and I think I finished those free ten sessions for the third time now.

In the beginning, I wanted to meditate between studying every day but then developed a habit of meditating before going to bed. The strange thing is that by doing so I also started to tidy up my room every night. I suddenly feel the urge of a clean desk and cannot bear to go to bed without having everything organized. I give the credit to my new meditation habit.

Now that December is over I am going to continue meditating because it cleans my head and makes me way more relaxes. I think I really need that right now. Are any of you guys meditating as well? Do you have any tips?

Just A Blank Blog

2017 is almost over and I have come to the conclusion that I need some change for the new year. This is why I am changing my blog name from Blog filled with thoughts to Just A Blank Blog. Over the last two years, my blog has changed a lot and I feel like my old name does not fit anymore.

I hope to be able to change some more things over the next year like opening my own Etsy shop and changing my name is the first step in this new direction.

I am going to keep my URL the way it is. This is why you will still be able to find me on https://blogfilledwiththoughts.wordpress.com

Lastly, I want to thank everyone who has been supporting this blog over the last year and I wish you all the best for 2018
