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.
what is youper and wysa?

Youper and Wysa are android apps that administer therapy through artificial intelligence. It probably sounds like a disaster at first, but I've found them to be effective in helping me to recognize destructive thinking patterns and analyze my feelings.

It's especially great if you can't afford therapy or if therapists aren't available in your area. In addition, you can contact the developers and suggest new features. They're always open to this and very nice.

I agree! It a great resource to have when you don't have therapy.
