Mindfulness, Meditation, sleep and exercise

Postby c.j. » Sun Aug 09, 2020 1:10 pm

Hi just wanted to express how beneficial Mindfulness and meditation is and has helped me enormously in a very wide range of situations.

I mainly use it at night time for a good sleep as my sleeping habits leave a lot to be desired (never manage to get to bed early, mind you my partner doesn't help as she's worse than me for it).

A lack of sleep can make current mental health a lot worse, so I recommend mindfulness, meditation and plenty of sleep. Also exercise can be very beneficial. Although I need to start practicicing what I preach as I've put on a few lbs the last few months (on top of all the other lbs previously!)

Thank you for sharing your experience. I too have experienced that mindfulness techniques help a lot. When the pandemic started I was not able to sleep because of the home and work stress mixed together after that I found a blog that suggested practicing mindfulness and that helped me a lot. Now I am a lot better and not at all stressed.
