3 Ways Meditation Will Increased Your Productivity
2016 has been about stepping outside my comfort zone.
This year, I’ve pushed myself to try new things, finished old things ( I know am not alone), meet new people, let go of people and fearlessly follow my passion.
Learn how meditation helped me improve my sleep, get more rest and increased my focus. This app has changed my life, and it will change yours too.
One of the things I’ve always wanted to try is meditation. I tried to get into meditation last year when I learned about the Calm App from my favorite podcast gals over at Joblogues.
If you want to get your professional life together, you need to listen to them ASAP. Plus my best-friend is the creator/co-host, and she is amazing so show her some love!
In their segment “rants, raves and reviews,” in episode 6, Courtney (cohost) raved about the Calm App. She talked about how it helped her sleep better, and since I could use some help in that area, I gave it a try. Although I loved the app, I had a tough time being consistent.
So I decided that 2016 would be the best time to give it another try. This time I committed myself to the process. I found a quiet place in my apartment, I picked a time in the morning and practiced consistently.
I fell off in March, but in April I returned to my daily practice, and thanks to the Calm App I was able to easily bounce back easily.
I LOVE THE CALM APP! There is a free version, which I used until early April when I upgraded. Which I highly recommend if it is in your budget. So let’s talk about how meditation increased my productivity.
Before meditating I had issues falling sleep, that’s why I go the app in the first place. Is like my brain decided that bedtime was the perfect time to think about everything that needs to get done. Really brain?? I had a hard time slowing my mind down.
Since I started meditating consistently, I sleep like a baby. With the techniques I learned using the Calm App I have learned to quiet my thoughts and clear my mind to get proper rest. Thank you! #MeditateWithNory
Although I consider myself a morning person, I still felt sluggish in the morning when waking up. Since I began meditating, I wake up feeling energized and ready to get my day started. I don’t even need my alarm anymore.
When I began meditating I was waking up at 7 am with my alarm; now I am waking up at 6 am effortlessly. Before getting my workout, practice yoga, meditate, have breakfast and spend quality time with my husband! #MeditateWithNory
I’ve Improved My Ability to Focus
I used to consider myself a master at multitasking. I recently learned there is no such thing as multitasking successfully, which was a bit of an eye-opener. When I purchased the annual subscription to the Calm App, I began their 7 Days of Focus program.
This program was fantastic; I particularly enjoyed their tips to manage digital distractions. Since finishing the program, I have drastically improved my ability to focus.
I don’t multitask anymore. I concentrate on completing one task before moving to the next. #MeditateWithNory
These are only three of the many ways meditation has improved my productivity and my life in general. If you have ever considered meditating, you should do it ASAP! Give yourself the opportunity to grow and improve your overall well-being.
I highly recommend trying the Calm App. Calm App folks, if you are reading this, Thank You! Your app rocks! This app is perfect to aid your healthy living journey!
