October 10th was World Mental Health Day. It’s not been the year we imagined, and we all need some extra support.
We know that meditation creates mixed reactions—some people can’t live without it, some have no idea what it means, and some think it’s simply not for them.
The thing is, you might already be doing it without realising. Meditation can be anything—a deep breath, a long run, a walk outside, your favourite class, time spent with a book, a home-cooked meal, or listening to music you love.
There’s a version for everyone and this meditation space, which we will continue to update throughout the month of October, is here to help you find it. Because every mind needs a break once in a while.
This mindfulness practice has myriad benefits. Here are three simple ways to try it for yourself.
To settle into the moment, put your headphones on and enjoy one of our Spotify playlists.
Whether you’re meditating for the first or 100th time, we’ve got something for every level in our online library.
