As the title suggests, I have been meditating using the app Headspace for 122 days and it’s been a very interesting journey. I have completed 6 packs – Basics, Basics 2, Basics 3, Managing Anxiety, Pain Management and Appreciation – plus some individual meditations in between.

Sometimes it can be difficult to be motivated to meditate, but I keep sticking with it as my hypnotherapist has told me multiple times how beneficial it can be. The most annoying thing I find while meditating is I often get distracted. My mind is always thinking and it knows when I’m trying to distract or stop it. Despite this still happening, meditation has reduced its resistance to stop thinking so much. It’s amazing!

122 days

Meditation has helped my pain a lot. Although it hasn’t reduced the intensity of the pain, my mindset has changed considerably. I no longer try not to resist the pain. I know that will make it so much worse. Letting the pain just be there is so much easier. This was very difficult at the beginning – it still is sometimes – but it was definitely worth fighting through that to be slightly more comfortable.

The benefits outweigh the costs completely. In my opinion, it’s definitely worth trying meditation. I can’t believe I’ve already been using Headspace for 122 days!

The photo is a Pinterest pin which is split into two sections. The background at the top of the pin is light blue with bold white writing that reads "122 Days of Headspace". The bottom of the pin is a photo of a green succulent in a grey pot against a cream/grey background. There is a small white circle in the middle of the pin with a blue medical ribbon in the middle.

  1. I’m not going to lie, I usually turn my nose up at things like meditation and that, but, I keep getting adverts for Headspace and each time they pop up, I find myself watching more and more of it (I used to just skip it straight away). I’ve even found myself Googling it for more information! I’m not sure why my attitude is changing. It might be because I am really getting to the end of my limits with my pain levels, which have just spiralled out of control recently. Trying to work full time in a stressful environment and trying to live as normal a life as I can, I’m starting to realise that I may need to open myself up to some things I would normally have ignored.
    Reading this, it’s very nearly cemented it for me, especially when you mention how it has helped you with pain. Pain is such an awful constant and I’m willing to give anything a go right now!
    Thanks for sharing!
