Today’s thing that helps is an app. Insight Timer offers over 60 guided meditations of various lengths, a self set timer, and daily meditation reminders. FOR FREE! If you want a larger choice of beginning and ending bells, presets, journaling, and a custom background picture, you have to pay $2.99. I’m a big fan of guided meditations and I love this app because it helps me mediate anywhere — in the car while I’m waiting to pick up Zoey, at home, waiting for a doctor who is running 45 minutes late (ear buds required). Prior to having Insight Timer I was struggling to meditate 3 times a week. Now I’ve meditated 11 days in a row. Somehow having it all on my phone just make sit so much more doable.
