Learning How to Sleep (via Meditation)

4 minute read

As college students, we don't sleep very often. Whether it be late nights of studying, hanging out with friends, working out, or whatever else you may be doing late at night, we seem to have a difficult time getting the 6-7 hours of recommended sleep a night. But luckily studies have shown that the quality of sleep is actually more important than the quantity. And, meditation has been shown to improve the quality of sleep. Wanna learn how?

I just wanted to take some time and share with you guys what I’ve learned over my one year of meditation.

Panic Attacks-What are They and What do I do When I Get Them?

7 minute read

This blog post goes over what a panic attack is, along with the differences between panic attacks and anxiety attacks. It then describes 2 breathing meditation techniques that can help combat the physical effects of both panic and anxiety attacks. Please please please remember that you are not alone in your fight with anxiety, panic attacks, or similar issues, so don’t be afraid to reach out to your friends, loved ones, or professionals if you ever need someone to talk to or are just looking for help. It does not make you any weaker to ask for help, in fact I believe it is one of the strongest things you can do. Even stronger than benching 4 plates!!
