  • 10 Years of Meditating

    I started meditating in 2012, when Headspace was launched. What are the useful things that I’ve gotten out of doing something for 10 years? Throughout this time, I tried all kinds of apps, such as Insight Timer, Calm, Ten Percent Happier, Waking Up, Oak. I went to a 10 day silent retreat, virtual retreats, even in-app retreats. I experienced Vipassana, Metta,…
