Calm Giveaway
Today, I have the pleasure of giving one of you a whole year of Calm!

Last fall I shared a list of things that make me feel peaceful, inspired by Moorea Seal's 52 Lists book.
My list included, home, candles, warmth, quiet, reading, intentionally listening to music, water, soup, paint, pencils, writing, playing guitar, arting, walking, singing, dancing, bathing, drawing, sleeping.

In addition to the things above, I've been finding my calm in meditations. Dominik bought me the Calm book along with a year subscription to the calm meditation app for my birthday. The app has honestly been a great help with finding calm. The meditations I have done so far have helped me relax and concentrate on how I am breathing and how my body is feeling. It has helped me to be okay with what is happening in my head and body, relaxing, and taking a few minutes out just to be. It's so refreshing.  The folks over at Calm have been so kind as to give one Olive Green Anna reader a free year long subscription to their meditation app. Info below...

Homescape #2, Anna Baer, 2015, 50X50cm, Acrylic on canvas, 

I am seriously jazzed (smooth jazzed....) about the Calm app. It's helped me to be okay and relax in spite of my insomnia. It is also wonderful to take time throughout the day to just be and rest, without consuming or producing anything.

They have several different meditations they lead you through. Sets for different types of situations. I've been working through the 7 Days of Sleep, and the 7 days of Focus, but they have other great things like Daily Calm which is a daily mediation, like a variety pack, or Emergency Calm which is a quick 2-10 minute meditation when you really need it. There's even Calm Kids.

I would love if they made a list for Birthing Calm. Haha. I may need this when I am trying to relax during the first stage of labor. I have been reading that it is best to relax your body and mind as much as possible, to allow our wondrous womb to do its work! Actually the bradley method book pretty much advocates a body scan type of meditation during the first stage of labor. So I think my practice with meditation using the Calm app could really benefit me when in labor.

How do you find calm?

P.S. I was writing this post the other day and then thought, I wonder whether Calm would give one of my readers a free year long subscription, contacted them, and yup! 
You can all join me for this year of calm for 5$ a month (60$ a year), and one of you can have a year of calm for free!
