Meditating 1 Hour a Day is Changing my Life

, , 100 Comments


so I wanted to challenge myself to do an hour of meditation a day for a whole week and there’s a couple of reasons why I wanted to do that first of all I just wanted to test myself to challenge myself to see what I’m capable of doing I have never meditated anywhere near this amount or this consistently ever before I do meditate usually like 10 to 20 minutes using the headspace app I’m not sponsored by them but I really like I really love actually the application and what they’re all about it has helped me be more consistent even though I don’t quite meditate every day but I’ve I had never meditated consistently on my own for so long you know for even close to an hour and the other reason is to kind of see if meditation on this kind of scale this sort of regularity can have an impact on my mental health on my happiness seems like there’s a ton of articles a ton of information about it out there but I don’t see a lot of people I don’t know anybody in my life that meditates that amount that consistently I’ve been dealing with huge waves of anxiety recently that I don’t I don’t really know where it’s coming from it’s alarmingly consistent happens to me like every day now it’ll come out of nowhere and it’ll kind of grabbed me by the chest and hold incredibly tight for hours on end and to me that speaks volumes to the fact that I’m clearly not dealing with something from my past or my present emotionally or spiritually there’s something I’m avoiding or running from and I’m always looking for creative and positive solutions to address stuff like this that’s one of the remarkable things about meditation it’s that I’ve noticed that it’s the only time I spend in a day necessarily where I’m truly like in my body and not doing something for somebody or for to make money or to you know any sort of express gain it’s it’s for it’s just to be within myself and to be in this body in this lifetime on this planet and you know what I say it that way it’s it’s like how am I putting more importance into something so valuable right our time is so incredibly finite and what we’re so busy running around it feels like it slips away so much faster so I just want to be course correcting a little bit and trying to bring more of that back into my life so with all that being said we’ll see how things go [Music] okay it’s like 6:30 in the morning I’ll be honest with you and how our meditation seems like a long time that’s why I’m trying to do like I’m making tea and you know light incense I’m trying to like kind of make the hell experience as inviting as possible I’m gonna fall asleep while I’m meditating you know I don’t wanna like go down a rabbit hole with my thoughts so I don’t know we’ll see what happens [Music] so that was a lot more difficult than I thought definitely felt like forever I feel a little bit more like just calm and grounded and sort of in my body just more present than usual especially in the morning so that’s really cool that’s really positive but very challenging like I couldn’t stop sort of following the trail of my thoughts throughout the entire hour so something I hope I can kind of like make progress on throughout this week also I don’t know if you could tell in the time-lapse but I was freezing I had the window open so that I could listen to nature which is cool I could listen to it there was a one point where there were some birds and it was some rain but it was freezing and so I had to put socks on at one point and then towards the end I just closed the window see I think it was a positive experience I will say my lack of discipline is pretty obvious so I could I could tell I was struggling there was a lot of internal noise going on so let’s say decent first day there’s a part of me that’s like oh my god how am I gonna do this six more times but I’m just gonna do it one day at a time and hopefully there’s improvement as I go through [Music] so the incense is lit now it wasn’t during the time lapse I tried today once again felt very very long longer in fact than yesterday was really challenged with lots of plots I’m a doer so I’m always thinking about what I could be doing or what I want to accomplish but I’m just accepting those thoughts and and sitting in the quiet following my breath I am to understand that in the like two to five minutes after meditation so far there’s this almost like natural high where I feel very light and very positive and very energized from the whole experience I mean I’ve only done two days and two hours of meditation so that’s where I’m gonna leave it right now I’m curious to see what happens I’m definitely in it for the whole week though I’m not giving up on this yeah I feel more grounded and more busy yeah after an hour of doing that it definitely takes a lot of the natural jitters there sometimes I have out alright it’s nice to meditate with the rain I will tell you that I have started to notice said in the last couple days I was quite focused and productive more so than usual I don’t think it’s all down to meditation but it definitely feels like a factor today was the most enjoyable it’s been so far and I think part of that is because I’m setting my phone on airplane mode and so I’m unreachable for an entire hour and that’s like quite nice that is a very nice feeling to have such privacy and such mental and and personal space I was a little bit more experimental than I was in the last couple of days in the sense that I did breathing exercises and you know the stuff that I know to quiet the mind but I also tried for example asking myself why I am afraid where are my fears coming from and I did get some answers I am realizing that there’s a lot of change coming in my life in the next few months a huge amount as in like total life changes and there is fear associated with that because I don’t want to lose all the stuff that I’ve got you know it’s not just I’m afraid of losing my comfortable life but also I’m afraid of bad things happening to me or bad things happening to my family and just shining a spotlight on it sort of helps to dispel it like you know I’m inventing these things I’m also trying this kind of weird I don’t know if this is an actual thing but visualizing light shining and flowing through my body and sort of replenishing myself and revitalizing and that is kind of contributing I think to a sense of lightness in my body and feeling of positivity and optimism so I don’t know maybe I just made this up but it is something that I kind of want to explore a little bit more over the rest of the week this week and the other thing that was different today is that it’s lunchtime so I’m meditating a lot later in the day that was kind of nice to sort of break up the day I had a little bit of a crazy morning and this has helped to bring down some of my crazy impulsiveness and you know sporadic behavior yeah lots of reflection it’s only day three obviously but I am really liking how this is going for sure I guess is a final thought for today I want to reiterate how surface-level I still feel like I am meditating for an hour a day has made me realize that there is so so much to explore it’s like having the entire earth in my mind and I’ve only been living in one city or one town so far and so I’m just like just starting to step outside of it so I definitely do not want to make it sound like I’m having incredible revelations or personality changes or anything like that this is just dipping my toes into what could be something that is a lot larger than I originally realized yeah alright so day like today was kind of the reason why I was trepidatious going into something like this I don’t think it shows at all in the time lapse but I just spent the whole hour in turmoil and kind of struggling through just thought after thought and getting pulled this way in that so just really frustrating I want to keep things real yesterday sucked super frustrating not a great session and I didn’t want to skip over that because I think it’s a really important part of this whole process but at the same time I didn’t want to spiral in the negativity so I kept things short but today was way way more positive went by more quickly felt better in general I think a huge part of that a huge reason why things went better today was because I slept better and more last night I decided to leave the the window open to let some of the outside noise in because it was really nice listening to the wind and and the rain while I was meditating I think the contrast between yesterday and today really helped me remember how hard I am on myself which I am coming to see as a really big negative borderline abusive you know I was really frustrated with how things went and blaming myself for all of it yesterday it’s so silly you know this is meant to be a positive sort of challenge that I’m placing on myself for this week exploring something new it not going well should not result in me criticizing myself and being down on myself and I think that’s something that’s really awesome about meditation it’s it’s really just a mirror on yourself you know I’m seeing all these things about myself coming out and having to just face them and accept them and reflect with them and think about them it’s kind of weird to describe it because I don’t know if everybody is like this I I know that for me I’ve always got a lot going on in my mind and I’m just sort of an intense person so these our sessions of meditation are actually like really intense there’s a lot going on internally I’m also trying this thing where I am just asking myself to feel some of the things that scare me or put me in a bad place in a negative place stuff that even I’m realizing happened two three four years ago and just feeling it I’m just letting it wash over me because I noticed that the feeling ever lasts you know it’s almost like I have a reaction to the potential of that sensation of negativity or whatever you know more so even than that actual trigger you know it’s almost like I’m anticipating so it’s funny I think I mentioned this one in the last few days but just shining a spotlight on stuff which is something that I don’t do because I’m often just running around doing stuff all the time really diminishes how large some of these like internal things are okay so before starting this whole challenge if you will I mentioned anxiety as a major reason for wanting to explore this and try this out and I’m so thankful that I’ve taken this on because emotional stability is something that I’m just really motivated right now to seek out it’s a huge reason why I’m creating content again surrounding productivity and mental well-being and balance because I feel like I really lack that in my life you know like I have really high highs and really low lows and I’m trying to mitigate that and approach that in a productive and constructive way meditation so far has been by far the most effective and efficient thing that I’ve tried of all the things that I’ve tried to bring that back to my life now make no mistakes about it meditation has been kicking my ass these last six days but it has also had a measurable impact on studying the ship I definitely feel like it is at the very least giving me perspective and awareness on how to approach some of the emotional loads that I feel like I often dive into I think it’s really important to say and I’m afraid of sounding redundant here but meditating it hasn’t been fun in the typical sense of the word but it has had this impact that has permeated throughout the rest of my week you know it’s been a really good investment of my time and energy this whole idea of mental and emotional stability is what ultimately led me to stoicism which I first heard about through Tim Ferriss it’s this school of thought this philosophy if you will that flourished with the ancient Greeks and Romans and it basically centers around this idea that you know self-discipline is extremely important and you should put all your energy and focus on what you can’t control which is essentially just your mind and your reactions to things and not put any energy or attention to the things that you cannot control external forces or what other people do I might make a video or two about this because it’s had a really big packed on my life but that’s basically what I decided to meditate on today I read a few passages this morning from the daily stoic which is a book I highly recommend I’ll link it down below and that was kind of nice to sort of frame my mind going into the meditation Wow tomorrow’s last day Gracie [Music] okay final day let’s do this thing you [Music] alright that was a week of one hour of meditation a day probably I’ve done it honestly we did it you guys we did it yeah today was awesome today was like you know sort of thinking about how difficult it was at the beginning of the week and obviously it remains difficult but it was less so you know you get kind of used to it and an hour doesn’t seem so interminable anymore still feels very long but it doesn’t feel like so painful honestly I’m realizing the power of habits and and and repeating actions positive actions in your daily life everyday and if anything I realized that I need this hour every day if I probably need more than this one hour a day I’m the kind of person that really needs a sort of grounding and centering practice and meditation is exactly that I talked about this a little bit yesterday but the the time that I put into this this week really did feel like some of the best use of my time it’s funny I’m not really like accomplishing anything or you know getting anything done if you will but but in a way I am so it’s a difficult thing to sort of explain especially to somebody who doesn’t meditate but um anybody who’s you know maybe curious about doing this sort of thing or trying this out I say go for it I mean what do you have to lose now is it realistic for me to be doing an hour of meditation every day no not really I probably won’t be able to do it every single day but I’m gonna definitely try I mean as often as I can and if I can’t do an hour I’ll do half an hour I mean I truly do believe that there has been sort of a shift this week however subtle I definitely do feel a little bit different and a little bit more kind of in control of things and a little bit more solid if you will I hope this video served to kind of show that meditation isn’t you know um four four hours a day in a robe it can be built into your daily life and it can be in the morning or at night sometimes all night at 8:00 at night to sort of try to end the day calm the mind and get ready for bed yeah so again I hope that this potentially inspired some of you out there to kind of give this a shot and I’m gonna try and keep building on this myself you know keep this streak going if you liked this video and would like to see more of this kind of content on this channel definitely let me know I read all the comments and that seriously helps me know what kinds of videos are having an impact and what kinds of videos are sought after by you guys I also want to briefly mention there’s loads of different ways you could potentially support me which also goes a really long way towards me uploading more often to this channel I’ve got a patreon you can sign up to my newsletter I’ve got a store online too or I sell prints that I work really hard on and some presets to a whole bunch of cool stuff so I’ll have links down below I’ll have links everywhere and yeah stick around [Music]

    I'm blown away by the amazing response to this video. I would have never thought that YouTube would promote a video like this (serious topic, slower pacing, etc.) but I just wanted to say thank you for all of the lovely comments and suggestions. There's a lot more of this kind of thing and my search for mental clarity on my channel, so feel free to check it out if you're interested!

    I used to meditate all the time and had periods of my life where I was practicing for an hour. For the past couple years I've only done 10 minutes here and there. Thanks for inspiring me to just go for it. And for reminding me of how life altering meditation is. Will definetly wake up tomorrow and try for an hour. ❤️

    I have been meditate til now everyday in 30 years. What you have got from 1hr. in 7 Days is quite right. However, Meditation benefits more than just what you think. And now I don't just sit for 1 hr. a day as I used to do, but I did practice meditate for every breath in and out. Also when I working, eating, jogging etc. It is amazing journey I experienced, which I could not explain in any language. Some says the result of meditation is something like super natural. But that is just from the mouth of person who did not keep continue or has dicipline in meditation. Because meditation can change not just yourself from innner to outer things in positive way but also it changed your environment, change people around you. Meditation changed everything in my life to a better life. The awareness which come through meditation makes me in 24hr./7days always happy in my present time from inside to outside. Meditation is my life, I can not live without it anymore.

    Great job, man! I’m doing the same thing right now. I do mine in the evening right before bed and couple it with TRE exercises before. If anyone needs guided meditation check out Michael Sealey’s Youtube channel. People need to treat their minds as well as they do their physical body.

    I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks, something like you have tested.
    Meditation is really helping me out.
    I was so shocked after just a few days of meditation, how it made me more calm, happy, concentrate.
    I was avoiding me, my mind and my body, and my spiritual energy was messed up.
    Now i feel like a new man, i can control me, my energy and my mind.

    Hi, wow! That was an amazing feat. I started trying to meditate after going through a difficult time in life. Lately I came across Eben Alexander MD who said something I found really useful. Sometimes the emotions can be positive or negative and both can be distracting. I think it was him who suggested that we are not our emotional content. We are the calm awareness that emotions happen to. That struck a chord with me. I also imagined I wasn't doing well when I was distracted by a lot of mental chatter or experienced really negative emotions. If the emotions are not us then whether they are positive, negative or neutral can't be a sign of a 'successful' or 'unsuccessful' meditation nor whether your mental chatter is very busy or fairly quiet. I find thinking that way really helpful as I can cut myself some slack and focus on putting the calm awareness in charge more rather than the 'success' of maintaining positive emotions which I think I was trying to do. It's difficult to fit in an hour but I am trying to set aside regular morning and evening slots. I take my hat off to you for your daily hour stint.

    Hola, my name is Antoinette. Aún debo mejorar mas mi inglés, para escribir y explicar lo que quiero sobretodo, en este tema tan importante. Por eso te escribo en eapañol…
    Me ha gustado mucho tu video y tu sinceridad. El punto que quiero compartir contigo es que la meditación, es mejor.. Cuando la comienzas de 0 a 1,000.
    Es decir, primero 5 minutos, luego 10, luego 20, 30… Así vas aprendiendo y dominando esta práctica. Entonces lo adaptas a tu vida diaria, como un estilo de vida.
    Yo tuve en el pasado, mucha ansiedad y miedo… Los llamé: "Pensamientos del Mal"
    Ahora he logrado controlar y ademas sentirme feliz, Utilizando meditacion, y otras técnicas muy interesantes y efectivas que investigue. Finalmente .. Te Felicito por tu video, esta muy bien. Thank you for share your experience.

    About a year ago I underwent a similar experience, thanks to Dr Joe Dispenza. I worked through his book "Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself" and did the guided meditations at the end of the book (the recordings are downloadable). Not only did the imagery and guidance have a positive effect, but also the fact that I was able to sit for MORE than an hour, without fidgeting and just remaining open to the journey, also made me feel that YES!!! I can do this!
    Your own experience is also very real and relatable, and thank you for sharing it!

    Meditation opens up the connection to our higher selves. The part of us that intuitively knows and can easily see through the limits that our placed on us in our minds. I believe the simpler approach the better when it comes to meditation practices. Sometimes over complicating such a process leads to being out of touch with what the practice is all about. Happy meditation all. 🙏❤️

    I've been meditating for many years but also haven't been regular about it. I watched this yesterday and decided to commit to a daily practice of at least 30 minutes a day for at least a month (to start). Today was my first day and I feel great. I've been watching a lot more of these kinds of videos over the past two months, changed my diet completely and started a regular workout program…and now this 💓. I believe I was meant to stumble upon it on purpose.

    The most important thoughts to pay attention to are the ones that we accept or reject immediately. Our beliefs rule our reality. So when you say "I'm a doer," then do meditation. Or at least meditate on why you label yourself with doing rather than being. (hope this doesn't come off too strong, I a, passionate about this because I am a hypnotist and the language and awareness we use shapes our world! And if you are interested in a self hypnosis challenge, I would love to work with you to come up with one, reframing thoughts to ones you want is the key!

    When people say "om" it's a way to redirect your mind from all the racing thoughts. When you focus on doing "om's" you slowly forget the racing thoughts and after you're done you don't even realize the racing thoughts in your head are either decreased or completely gone. You also dont just have to say "om" you can say any phrase multiple times in your head or out loud which also diverts your racing mind. When I started meditation my anxiety lessened because my thoughts would be rapid, it helped me to slow down my mind and think it out as to really hone in on the real reason for my stress and anxiety. I stopped dreaming which is weird but I enjoy not dreaming because my mind isn't afraid anymore.

    I'm currently in the middle of a similar challenge for myself. Like you I have had some major changes in my life lately including a painful separation. My goal has been to meditate for at least one hour every day, but I break it up into morning, afternoon and bedtime. I'm about a week in and I've been amazed at the difference it has made in reducing my anxiety. Thank you for sharing your experience.

    Hey Nathaniel!

    First of all I wanna take this opportunity to let you know that I like your videos 🙏🏻
    My colleague recommended your channel and I’m glad she did.

    I know the struggle of having too many thoughts and trying to meditate. But all your thoughts are OK , don’t fight them. If your mind tries to trick you into negativity, look at it in a different way.. anyway .. it’s amazing that you did this 1 hour a day!

    A nicer way to take some time for yourself and “escape” is yoga!
    I struggle with sitting down and do nothing but yoga is my way to take a step back and relax. Meditation + moving = less overthinking and more focus.
    I can highly recommend @yogawithadriene on YouTube 🧘🏻‍♀️

    Thanks for creating and enjoying awesome content!

    ✌🏻 Anaïs

    No…. definitivamente no me gustó tu video. Es muy subjetivo pero si tienes toda la razón en algo; la meditación cambia TU vida. Felicidades por eso.

    it is fluoride they add to tap water. It cannot be filtered out, nor removed by reverse osmosis. Fluoride causes anxiety, depression, brain damage, cancer, weight gain, nerve damage, ms, mental fog. Cook with spring water and avoid drinking coffee, tea, soups, etc. outside your house.

    I really love how many people try to do meditation and try to live their best life and be the best person they can. This is spreading so quickly and I'm so proud of y'all. Keep pushing and trying harder ❤️

    It's been a week since I started this journey and I can only do 3-5 minutes of meditation so far. I feel so disappointed in myself. Letting go of thoughts and pausing my brain seems like mission impossible for me. This video gives me hope though. I'll get there one day (hopefully)!

    Do you know "The Work" of Byron Katie? This really could be a thing for you. If you re interested in conciousness and inner freedom it really could be worth a try for you 🙂

    Started meditating for the last 3 weeks 1 hour a day, sometimes I end up doing 45 mins or 30 mins but I always do over 30, and its been amazing, my life feels so centred and I feel so much more grounded and able to achieve way more. I found that fear was getting in the way of a lot of what I wanted to do and accepting that and running towards fear has changed a lot in the last 3 weeks

    Since march 2019 I meditate 20/30 minutes in the morning and the same in the evening before I go to bed. It's so relaxing and I'm more productive during the day and sleep better. 🙂

    Meditation made me realize that I am not my situation. Even meditation itself is a perfect place to learn that lesson. I realized that it doesn’t matter whether my meditation experience is good or bad. Good or bad is just something we are observing. A feeling. But it’s not us. If your session went well, you are still you. If your session didn’t go well, you are still you. Don’t identify with what your experiencing. And that goes with everything in life.
