Wish you were laying on a beach listening to the waves of the ocean and relaxing?
Listening to the sounds of the ocean is one of the most popular on-line guided meditation sounds and there is a very good reason why because research now shows that meditating regularly is even more effective than going on a holiday.
When you go on a holiday it lowers your stress, makes you feel more at ease and relaxed, happy and healthy within but unfortunately when you get back to your normal routine and work again all of those holiday benefits are quickly gone and it feels like you never had a holiday again.
However when you meditate regularly you experience the same wellness benefits of going on a holiday but daily instead of once or a couple of times a year and it helps to lower your stress and makes you feel more relaxed and at peace within and it makes you feel happy healthy and more calm within.
If you want to feel like you are going on a relaxing holiday every single day then here are six apps to help get your Meditation practice started:
