Looking to be a calmer, more mindful, focused person in 2014?
I know I am definitely looking for ways to relax and clear my mind in the New Year. And as much as I would like to be able to say that I will take the time out of my schedule and dedicate it solely to mediation, the reality is that I need to use daily tools to aid in my serenity.
The apps that I have found offer a variety of ways to unwind and be one with myself by offering guided mediation, regardless if you are a novice or at an advanced level, to keep your sanity on track.
