Mindfulness & Escaping with Music

Hello, friend!

I hope this post finds you and your loved ones are well and healthy in these rather dull and dark times.

Music has always helped me overcome any light depression and anxiety I may face on any given day. I love listening to bhajans (devotional music) and instrumentals! Upbeat tunes are a staple for me with some nice, slow paced music in between.

It’s just really nice to sit back and let your thoughts just flow as you maintain mindfulness by coming back to the music whenever the thoughts go astray or into unpleasant territories. To dance away or to just sit and breathe with the song’s rhythm….

What kind of songs do you like to listen to? And where do you listen to them from (i.e. YouTube, Spotify, etc.)?

I thought I’d share some of my favorite songs with you below! (I mainly use YouTube to create my song playlists)

(Note: I’ll try my best to update these links as much as possible to keep them working! Also, I’m not sponsored or affiliated with any of the artists/ groups whose song’s I’m listing below!)

Artist: Krishna Das; Song: Govinda Hare

New Year, New Resolutions: Making a Game Plan

Hello! 

Welcome to the first monthly mindfulness of the year! I’m kinda psyched about sharing mindful thoughts and experiences with you as a way to get some insights going.

Here are some helplines to call for assistance

US National Suicide Prevention Helpline: 1-800-273-8255 (24×7) 

India AASRA Suicide Prevention: +91-9820466726 (24×7)

New Years and January of practically every year are resolution setting times. And if you are anything like me, I hate resolutions ever since I found out that everyone hypes you up to do it…but not how to do it. 

Writing down big ideas and goals are cool but how are you gonna achieve it, bruh? Like, what’s the game plan detail?
