Meditation has become really popular among millennials. Perhaps the shift is a reflection of the balance that our generation is seeking, or rather that our generation is simply WOKE. It excites me to see younger people get into this practice. Over the last three years, meditation has been a way for me to get to know more about myself and a way for me to challenge my mind. It's hard to sit still and NOT think. If you are looking to get into meditation, or want to learn more about the mental practice, see our list of the best meditation apps as ranked by iTunes and recommended by Dr. Emma Seppala
