Effect on Emotions

  • It has really just made me more present and it has made me just less dramatic of a person. I am not so stressed out about the future and regretting the past and thinks I now can't control. It has just made me more of a present, relaxed and calm individual.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • When I meditate every day and I have that headband on that is measuring my brainwaves, when I am doing well it is because I am breathing deeply and really thoughtfully. When I am not I've noticed that my breathing really has shifted and I am not really focused on my deep breathing and more on my shallow breathing, so it's been a big impact.

Advice for Newbie

  • Start slow, a couple minutes a day, just sit down and be quiet, just breathe and just close your eyes so you can be present in the moment and focus on your breathing. Go to three minutes and then a couple weeks later go to four. Then maybe if you can invest in yourself or invest in an app or invest in something like this chose muse device that I use which is really powerful and just continue to grow slowly and surely.
