My Mood: Stressed
I tried it twice, the first time was in May of the past year and it didn't do anything for me because my anxiety level was so high that I couldn't relax enough while meditating. I tried again in April or May of this year I think as a morning routine. It was working better because I'm also currently medicated even though following the same video everyday was making me a little bored. I could try other techniques but I like having a guideline when I meditate. I guess it was a placebo effect but it was working a little bit. Then my boyfriend came over to spend 5 weeks at my place and my routine changed so I couldn't do it anymore and stopped. I'm not sure if I should try again because for me it takes so much concentration that it's quite an energy-consuming activity rather than a relaxing experience. Plus it hasn't had much effect on my anxiety.

And they know one thing above all the rest
Sparkle covers evilness
Shimmer covers all the mess
Glitter covers darkness»
