“Happy Place” Meditation (2.5 Minutes)

Happiness isn’t a destination that we have to travel to. It’s a feeling inside that we can take with us wherever we go. Try out this 2.5 minute meditation about your “Happy Place.”

“Impermanence” Meditation (9 mins)

The Universal Law of Impermanence reminds us that the only thing permanent in this life is change. Basically, nothing lasts forever. This isn’t anything to feel sad about. It’s quite helpful to be aware of and here’s why. When we’re experiencing something good we get to feel more grateful and really cherish it while we have it in our lives.

At ‘Change Your Algorithm’ we believe that meditation keeps us balanced, present and aligned with our truth. Here’s a 5-minute meditation about “Letting Go.” Whether it’s a regret, insecurity, past relationship or something we’re shameful of, the secret to letting go is by simply letting it be. The things we try to run away from are the same things that haunt us. By letting things be, by finding acceptance and compassion, you will find that it becomes easier to let things go.

Challenge Your Beliefs

Airports and Websites both have a security check. Make sure that your mind does the same for negative self-beliefs. Remember that 80% of our daily thoughts are considered to be negative and a majority of them are NOT TRUE: “I’m a loser”, “I’m not worthy”, “I’m never going to be successful”. Always challenge negative self-beliefs when they arise so you recognize that they are in fact false…and not worthy of living in your mind.

Societal Expectations

Redefine EVERYTHING: What pretty, success, love, and happiness look like. Don’t let society try to fit you into a mold that you were not meant to fit in. As Oscar Wilde once wrote, “Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.” Visit Change Your Algorithm, a mental wellness + motivational program that offers several free online classes for anyone that wants to live a better life. Everything starts with the mind.

Your Inner Child

I bet you were an awesome kid! No childhood is perfect but what I want you to know is this. Whatever you wanted as a child back then, you can provide as an adult right now. Wounds from the past can still be healed in the present.

“Schadenfreude” is a German word for people that get pleasure in someone else’s misfortune. “Schaden” meaning “harm”. “Freude” meaning “Joy”. This is different from “sadists” because those are people that inflict the harm. “Schadenfreude” is when harm is not inflicted from the person. That person just wishes misfortune or harm on another to “even the playing field.”
