It’s easy to shy away from meditation — to think it’s a faddish trend or something for those hippie yogis in your life. But there are lots of approaches to meditation, and sometimes it’s about finding the right one for you.
Through meditation, you can find awareness of your body and mind and a sense of perspective and calm. And through its practice, you can open your mind to new ideas and uncover a sense of resilience that helps boost creativity and innovation.
Meditation is a skill, and like any other skill, this is one where some instruction is helpful. A few of our favorite places to start:
- Headspace: Great articles, and the app is excellent for guided meditations.
- Calm: Find tips on the blog, and discover guided meditations in the app.
- 10% Happier: Dan Harris’ book, podcast and app come from the perspective of a one-time skeptic and offer excellent insights and practices.
