Fear of Missing Out (FoMO): How Meditation Changed the Way I Viewed Sports

Growing up, I was a sports fanatic. I emphasize the word fanatic. As a life-long California Bay Area resident, I’ve always been a fan of the Golden State Warriors (yes, even before they won their NBA championship a couple years ago). I owned their merchandise and I would attend a few games each year. In fact, I was such a fan, that a few years ago, I even got the same exact tattoo as one of my favorite players. Yes, you heard that right. The same exact tattoo, in the same exact body part. Oh man, how I would slap myself if I could go back in time when that idea initially came into my head.

What Does Your Meditation Space Look Like?

With all this newly available space, there is a corner of the bedroom that I have decided to dedicate to meditation. Now I am searching for ideas, inspiration, and suggestions on how to personalize this small area into a meditation space.

How Meditation Helped Me Cope with A Breakup

How Mindfulness Helped Me at a Wedding

“If you are thinking too much about the past, and you are worrying too much about the future, then you are not living in the present. And in the present, that is all there is.”

A quote I read recently went something like that. I don’t know the exact wording, but the whole idea behind that statement has stuck with me. Ever since I’ve been meditating, I have had this new positive outlook on life. I do my best to stay in the moment; I do not worry about the past, and I do not worry about the future.

Something I Never Expected to Happen Once I Started Meditating

“I created this website to record my journey as motivation for myself.” If you have read the blog goals in the About Meditating Millennial section, you will see that line. But I had no idea just how much I would gain from blogging my meditation journey. It wasn’t what I had ever expected.
