19 Sep Mindfulness is an investment in myself – Caroline Jönsson
“Mindfulness is an investment in myself,” says Caroline Jönsson, our Mindfulness Hero of the month. We got in touch with her to share her experience with you so that you find some motivation from her to make meditation a daily habit.
Why did you start meditating?
I started to practice mindfulness because I had a hard time relaxing and letting go of my thoughts. This led to days filled with stress and nights filled with bad sleep. I am an active person and love to have multiple projects going on, so I really needed something to help me find balance in my life and the energy to do want I wanted.
How has meditation helped you in becoming a better person?
It has helped me a lot! When I prioritise to practice mindfulness, I take care of my well being and become a much calmer and balanced person. I have become a better person towards myself for spending time on what makes me relax and be in the present. I can also handle my stress so it does not go out over other people in my environment.
What made you stick to Aware?
It was easy to use and I liked the many settings available. You can see your progress and set a reminder every day; that helped me a lot to make meditation a part of my routine.
What has been your life-hack to make meditation a habit? Share some tips for beginners.
It really worked for me to think that these few minutes that I spend doing mindfulness is my own time and an investment in myself. In the beginning i could easily get distracted or think about other things that need do be done. But when I noticed this I said to myself this time is for me and me only.
