Meet Nancy

As a healthcare worker, she was having trouble falling asleep at night. She didn’t expect to begin a journey of self-discovery.

Welcome to Meet Our Community!

This is a place where we are sharing real-life experiences from Mindfulness.com community members — both as a way to help you feel connected to people all around the world who are on the mindfulness journey with you, and also so you can see how regular, simple mindfulness practices are helping people deal with challenges, increase happiness, and improve their everyday wellbeing.

We’d love to introduce you to Nancy. Nancy reached out to us from Northwest Missouri in the USA. As a healthcare worker, she was having trouble falling asleep at night. She didn’t expect to begin a journey of self-discovery. 

Read Nancy’s full story and find out how her mindfulness journey came with unexpected gifts:

Searching for sleep

Initially, I was searching for a solution to assist me with falling asleep. As a nurse, my job can be quite stressful, and I found the sleep meditations to be relaxing and soothing.

After a while, not only was I falling asleep faster, but I was also able to stay asleep and get higher-quality rest, because my mind was calmer and I was holding less tension in my body.

As I began my journey with the app, something else happened: I actually began an unexpected process of self-discovery. These practices have allowed me to expand my knowledge of myself.

This app is designed so well to meet my needs, and I now do meditations at least once a day, sometimes more.

Helping my patients, too

As a healthcare professional, I have introduced to my patients the simple practice of mindful breathing. I’ve noticed that this technique is very effective in reducing elevated blood pressure.

Now I refer this app often to those whom I serve as a nurse and to friends and family.

Advice I would give to someone starting out with mindfulness and how to tackle life with mindfulness is:

Be kind to yourself and begin your journey. It’s all in the breath!

Start Your Journey

If Nancy’s story resonates with you, and you’re curious about simple techniques that can help relax your mind and body for better rest — we invite you to try mindfulness.

Inside the app, you’ll find a wide variety of resources, from courses to meditations to mini-practices, that can help release tension, connect with your body, and soothe a racing mind.

(And you never know: you might just begin an unexpected journey of self-discovery with benefits that extend beyond better sleep.)
