One of the most exciting habits that I formed during the covid-19 pandemic lockdown is meditation. I start the day by meditating with the Calm Mental Health App which has daily guided meditations (Daily Calm with Tamara Levitt, Daily Trip with Jeff Warren, and Daily Jay with Jay Shetty), Morning Wake-Up stretch with  Christian Slomka, curated sleep tracks, and other great contents. It has been a great experience as meditating helps in paying attention to your breathing, staying focused and grounded.

Meditation is a practice in which an individual uses a technique – such as mindfulness, or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought, or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm, and stable state. 1
