Random Thought #2 - Meditation

Meditation is something that I used to think was something just for hippies and that I didn't need to do such an act. However, this was purely my ignorance speaking as I didn't know how to do it and what the specific benefits were. 

Fast forward to today, and I meditate for 20 minutes a day on a daily basis and value the act as a powerful tool to be able to focus my mind and to think straight. For 20 minutes a day, I focus on myself, nobody or nothing else, me and the benefit are that my mind becomes much more focused, and I am much more relaxed in life. 

Currently, I do what is known as assisted meditation utilising a free app called Oak (https://www.oakmeditation.com/) which was created by the great mind Kevin Rose (https://www.kevinrose.com/). 

But you don't need to use an app or anything, sit down somewhere quiet for 10 minutes a day, close your eyes and focus on breathing in and out. If you start to think of other things, think "I recognise I am not focusing right now" and go back to focusing on the breathing and you would be surprised at after a week how much freer you feel.
