Meditation is a personal journey, but the same solitude that’s essential for embarking on a quest for inner peace can become lonely and overwhelming for zen newbies. There are plenty of smartphone meditation apps to help you along, but relying solely on a digital device for a centuries-old analog practice feels at odds with the goal you’ve set your sights on. The Meditation Sidekick Journal by Habit Nest relies on scientifically-backed behavioral methods to take you from occasional mindfulness to daily calm.
The Meditation Sidekick Journal has an engaging three-section structure. In the Learning phase, you’ll discover how meditation fundamentally changes your brain’s structure and how it can improve your life. The Tracking phase provides space for you to record your meditation experiences each morning and note any new developments, and the Content phase is packed with learning tools, inspiration and guidance for improving your practice. Added external support from the private online Habit Nest community helps you overcome any additional hurdles, and the un-dated structure lets you begin at any time for 66 solid days of practice — according to behavioral science, that’s exactly how long it takes to solidify a healthy new habit.
Habit Nest’s Meditation Sidekick Journal normally goes for $37.77, but it’s 33% off right now for a sale price of $25.99.
