Sometimes I find myself caught in the busyness of life, scrambling to complete one task after another only to feel empty and unfulfilled at the end of the day.
Sometimes I find myself constantly clouded from the continuous stream of thoughts and incessant chatter that hijack my mind.
In the search for more mindful and purposeful living, I turned to meditation.
Comparing the mind to a CPU, sitting in silence centered on the breath triggers the shutting down of the unnecessary processes, freeing the RAM for more important applications.
Some days, I am able to still the mind rather quickly but on others, the thoughts just sprout uncontrollably like pimples on an adolescent’s face.
On days like this, I would use some additional help in the form of meditation apps. My two favourite apps are iSonic Mediation and iSonic EasySleep.
iSonic Mediation combines the sounds of nature with calming music which helps me to anchor the mind with ease.
iSonic EasySleep offers a range of meditative sounds which is claimed to reduce cortisol (stress hormones) levels in your body.
I love to put on the ‘summer night’ ambience’ which is the sound of crickets chirping. It bestows on me the calming effect of sitting in nature yet with the security of being indoors.
For the past month, my JBL speakers have been instrumental in helping me achieve centeredness during meditation. The clean and crisp output greatly enhances the entire experience, transforming my humble room into the different meditative landscapes.
“Quiet the mind, and the soul will speak.”
