Out of my head

20130502-215033.jpg

I was on my way to work yesterday when I heard this song on the radio.

“Was I out of my head? Was I out of my mind? How could I have ever been so blind? I was waiting for an indication; it was hard to find.”

It’s so brilliantly catchy that I can’t believe I didn’t hear this song in the 90s. What was I doing then?! (I was busy being a teenager. HAHA!)

And somehow the song was apt for what I was experiencing the past two days. I read about this free mobile app on meditation and I immediately downloaded Headspace onto my phone. One of the best decisions I ever made in my life!

It looks really cool and is brilliantly designed. It has short videos and bite-sized recordings (the founder of Headspace has an amazing voice) to guide you through your meditation and even daily reminders to help you practise mindfulness. The screenshot above is one of the alerts that I have been receiving over the past days, reminding me to focus on myself.

‘Me time’ is with you wherever you go. The only thing that gets in the way of ‘me time’ is wanting to be someplace else. —Headspace

Guess what? It really works. I meditated in the past two days — once in the morning and once before I sleep — and I do feel much better now. There’s clarity in my mind and I’m more focused on the present. And I feel less hung up about the past. I also feel less frightened and apprehensive of what I dread most… If that makes sense. Amazing huh?

Try the app and let me know how it goes. Meanwhile, check out the song below. Goodnight, y’all!
