I have done a LOT of research over the past 10 months. I have read books and blogs, listened to podcasts, attended seminars, watched YouTube videos, and met with one incredibly trustworthy and knowledgeable financial planner.

Here are just a few of the books I’ve read:

  • Rich Dad, Poor Dad

  • The Automatic Millionaire
  • The Millionaire Next Door
  • The Simple Path to Wealth
  • I Will Teach You To Be Rich
  • The Latte Factor
  • The Total Money Makeover

Podcasts I have (or continue to) listen to:

  • Bigger Pockets
  • Choose FI
  • Motley Fool
  • The Money Guy Show
  • Mr. Money Moustache

You get the idea.

I don’t know about you guys, but being in debt stresses me out! For the longest time I wasn’t good at dealing with stress, but now I’ve found that if I tackle it on four distinct fronts, I can stay ahead of it for the most part. My 4 fronts of attack are:

  1. Getting the right amount of sleep.
  2. Exercising at least 5 days a week.
  3. Eating healthy foods.
  4. Meditating.

Today I’d like to focus on items #4 in that list and specifically on the app that taught me how to meditate.

When I started meditating a little over a year ago, it wasn’t to find spiritual awakening or to transcend to a different plane of spiritual existence. To be totally honest, I was skeptical to say the least. One day I was on Instagram, and I saw this nice little post someone had shared about taking the time to calm your mind.
