Oh meditation, I love you.
I’ve been meditating for a few years now. The change in my life is pretty indescribable because apart from the obvious changes (health, wellness, better sleep, happiness, less stress, etc), there’s this undercurrent of flow and peace that infuses my every moment. I find it hard to describe but maybe i just did. :) Meditation will always be a part of my life.
The first app that I fell in love with was by Dan Harris called 10% Happier. It’s awesome and I highly recommend. It’s filled with great guided meditations by different teachers (the best in the world) and there are a plethora of choices for meditating and learning. I love it. 💜 I use it. I recommend it. (I am happy with the free version.)
But, there’s another (free) meditation app that I adore, too. It’s called Oak by Kevin Rose. I’ve been using it pretty exclusively lately. The difference between 10% Happier and Oak is the difference between variety and simplicity. 10% Happier has a wide variety of options for teaching mediation whereas Oak is simple and straightforward with three choices… Wisdom, Breathe, Meditate.
