There are few things that I recommend more often than Insight Timer. It's a popular and free meditation app that features high-quality content from gifted and passionate teachers.
Where to start?
Insight Timer has a wonderful and free course for an introduction to meditation. It's simple, powerful, and calming, and it features one of my favorite teachers in the app, Sarah Blondin.
I found Jennifer Piercy during a particularly stressful time, and she was a lifesaver. She regularly helped me to fall back to sleep in the middle of the night when I could not settle the mind chatter on my own. Try her Yoga Nidra for Sleep session.
Insight Timer is a company with a noteworthy mission.
If you enjoy the app, consider becoming a premium subscriber. There's a free 7 day trial for Insight Premium, and after that, it's available for $60/year or $10/month. The benefits are fantastic and include useful features like unlimited courses, offline listening, and night mode which gives you the option for a dark screen so that you don't light up the whole room if you use it during the night.
There are thousands of meditations to choose from with or without the premium content. They also have an extensive music library and a customizable timer if you prefer to meditate without being guided.
There are so many benefits to a consistent meditation practice. Find a time that works well for you, and start with 5 or 10 minutes a day. You can do this!
This simple and nutritious smoothie is an energy boost for your day!
Start with a banana in the blender.
Add a handful or two of greens. I like to use spinach and arugula.
Add frozen fruit. Blueberries and mango are my favorites.
Choose your milk. Almond is my go-to.
Top with ice and maybe a spice or two. Cinnamon and ginger are good ones to try.
It might seem inconsequential right now, but how you treat yourself today, tomorrow, the next day, it determines who you will be in a week, a month, a year, a decade.
