Ultimately, you are in control of your meditation journey.

Guided meditations apps like Insight Timer can be helpful when trying to incorporate meditation into your daily routine. If you are new to guided meditations, try out different voices, topics, and styles. Learn how different types of meditation affect you and which ones resonate with you.
