Attracted by all the fuss around mindfulness, a couple of weeks ago I decided to try meditating. I installed Headspace and tried the basic 10-day program.
I discovered at least three things:
- Meditation is a practice. It requires becoming a habit to have any effect. I tried apps like Calm and Headspace in the past, but I had never tried a daily extended practice. Now that it has become a habit, I crave for it, and I enjoy doing it.
- I thought it was BS, but it’s not. I find myself more focused, more aware, more interested in exploring deeper meditation and its effects.
- As many other practices, it becomes cooler over time. The first few days it’s kinda boring, then it gets better and better.
