But yesterday went a little bit like this:

Guided Voice: Now, become aware of your physical surroundings and slowly open your eyes.

Me: *Eyes already open. Slurps soup absentmindedly while listening to the voice *



...I could have done way better. I find that I meditate better while lying down. It's easy to become uncomfortable and stop meditating while sitting up cross-legged.

Anyone else practice meditation and mindfulness? If so, do you use apps, YouTube? Guided or unguided meditations? Also, does anyone use Youper or Wysa for therapy? I find that they help a lot for when you don't have a therapist. They don't take the place of a real one, but they do a good job.
I try to meditate but it never goes well. My mind keeps yammering on and my ear worms play music...🤕
