Stop everything! I found a life-changing hobby which I hope to turn to a way of life.
I don’t know much about it when I practice something I have to learn about it.
But first, let me tell you how it practically divided my life to before and after (Always wanted to say this dramatic sentence, so please read it in a very dramatic voice).
Let me introduce you to this app (works for Android, I don’t know about iPhone, but I bet there is a good equivalent))
It is pretty much meditation for beginners, this is a mindfulness type of meditation, known to help with anxiety, depression and such.
From my personal experience, first time I tried it a few weeks ago, was the first time since that whole cancer thing happened that I felt connected to my body again.
An explanation of what I mean to those who never felt detached from their body would be a long philosophical talk about “who am I”, am I my mind, am I my body, am I my thoughts, etc, Long story short, when I was feeling totally shitty during chemo, my mind was dancing, but my body refused to move, so we pretty much stopped being friends.
This is what I experience after meditating: I connect to my body, I calm my mind and clear it of negative thoughts, I calm anxiety and enlarge productivity, clear mind is better for catching muse, which is so important to me.
i used to be lazy and avoiding person before I started all this self-transformation to become a happy person. But yesterday I surprised myself when after work, with two bags I found myself going to the beach to meditate! I wanted to do it in the morning but never had a chance yet. I managed to snap some really ugly pictures, I will post at the bottom of the post.
Meditation was great, the sound of waves, people talking and laughing, the breeze and the warm-beginning-to-turn-to-cool sand.
When I turned my head around after meditation and notice an old dude butt naked changing clothes I didn’t even want to yell at him. Poor bastard probably though that he is invisible in the dark, or a tourist.
p.s looking for a free image host, anyone?
