    Fake meditating is better than no meditating!

    I love these! It’s nearly impossible for me to wake up stress-free, so I’m sure these will add a few years to my lifespan (if I can commit to them consistently!). The Café Mocha smoothie mix looks sooo good too!!!

    I truly enjoy your post- this was really one of my favorite ones and truly informative. My favorite point would have to be “No technology” because I took a break from social media and truly enjoy connecting with the real world. I will def put this into a habit!

    Hi Amanda,

    a good and healthy breakfast is important to me as well. I like to mix it up with toast, cereal and scrambled eggs. :-)

    Random question: What`s the name of the middle book in the pile of your night stand?

    Love this post, girl!

    Have you tried Headspace? It’s a meditation app that’s pretty amazing- definitely makes practice easier/ more approachable. I’ve been using it for over a year and I highly recommend it!

    Amanda, you might like the Zen12 meditation program!
    Why not check it out? The tracks are about 12 minutes each (as opposed to binural beats, which are at least an hour), and I always feel super refreshed afterwards. It takes you down into a deeper meditative state, then in the last few minutes brings you up out of deeper brainwave patterns, leaving you even higher (heh) then before.
    There’s different tracks with the same tone underneath; one with relaxing music, one with white noise, a guided meditation, and one with nature sounds….. they all have the same awesome effect on me.
    It’s called Zen 12 because there are 12 levels, you use each level every day for a month, working your way up to level 12, then you can continue using level 12 indefinitely.
    This is starting to turn into a ramble, so I’ll leave it as that.
    If you decide to use it, I hope you enjoy!

    I couldn’t agree w/ this more! I’ve started to meditate for 5 mins right after waking up (& right before checking my phone), and I’m loving it so far.

    Thanks for sharing :)
