About Meditating Millennial

Blog Goals

The purpose of this blog is not to educate people about meditation; there are plenty of resources where you can learn about it. My blog posts will document the different techniques of meditating that I have tried. Mainly, I created this website to record my journey as motivation for myself. I plan to write about how I got into meditation, my research into it, how I am incorporating meditation into my life, the results I have seen, and anything else that may relate to meditation and my life.

About Meditation

A simple Google search will give you all the explanations of what meditation is and the benefits for a person. Here is a quick and simple list of what meditation may do for you:

  • Reduce your stress levels
  • Create more self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Induce creativity rather than consumption
  • Improve your focus and concentration
  • Become more self-aware of your surroundings
  • Increase your compassion and acceptance

Personal Details

I am a twenty-something year old living in the suburbs of the California Bay Area. I have a Bachelor of Science degree and now work in the healthcare industry. My time consists of physical exercise (gym, hiking, walking, basketball), browsing the Internet, video games, reading, watching sports, playing with my cats and spending time with family and friends.

  2. Just popping over to say thank you for choosing to follow my blog. Sending you much lovingkindness on your journey into making friends with your mind! We’re all on the path somewhere… One thought about happiness and peace; it’s not the absence of conflict or pain, but the ability to remain connected to our true Selves (big S) in its midst. Truly a practice. Write on!

  3. Hi, Meditating Millennial! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’ve been studying Buddhism for a long time and practicing in a Korean Zen tradition for a few years, but I just enrolled in a course at the Center for Mindfulness at UMass Medical. I’ve recently started a career in counseling, so I’m interested in seeing how mindfulness techniques are presented to a more general audience. One of my New Year’s resolutions is to strengthen my commitment to practice, and the other is to blog more consistently, so I'[m really on board with what you’re laying down here. Looking forward to reading more. Jeff

  4. I can’t help but wonder whether it was faith or fate that you followed my blog today.

    I have been meditating off & on for about a year now, mostly for insomnia & anxiety. However, I feel as though I’m finally starting to make some progress. It’s all about focus.

    I often refer to medication as “stopping the world,” an ideal from the writings of Carlos Castaneda.

    Thank you for the follow.

    Peace.
