Meditation for depression and anxiety

Meditation for Depression and Anxiety

Hello, My name is Faith and I've been managing depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. I started this blog to share my tips and tricks and help other bad ass babes kick ass on their mental health journey. I have an online support group you can join for free here.

I’ve never been interested in meditation. I knew it would probably be good for me but somehow it felt too intense to me. I would sit in silence and not be able to quite my mind. It almost seemed like trying to be quite made it even freaking louder. Lately, I’ve been really into guided meditations. Here are some of my favorites for when I’m starting to feel depressed or anxious. I’ve found them really helpful and I hope you find them useful too.

This is a great one if you’re a chronic worrier like me. It helps you quite down the voices in your head that love to worry about every single little thing that could go wrong.


This is a great one to try if you are having trouble sleeping.


This one has a magical feel that I’m really into.


Another good one to try if you are having trouble sleeping at night.

 

I like that this one has a female voice. This is a good one to try if you’re struggling with managing depression

This one has the ocean in the background which I am a big fan of. If the beach gives you peace I recommed trying this one.

This channel has a ton of awesome meditations. This is one of my favorites.

Here’s another good one to try if you’re struggling with depression.
