The ideas of meditation and mindfulness may seem antithetical to the flash and noise of modern technology. Still, depending on your perspective, they can intersect quite well with one another. If your home life is a little too rowdy for your taste, a VR headset, perhaps paired with noise-canceling headphones, can make for an excellent getaway. With apps like Innerworld and Hoame, you can transport yourself to a faraway mountaintop or serene spring, surrounded by natural sounds as you enjoy meditative peace.
Additionally, if you’re looking to conquer a particular aspect of yourself, VR can provide a safe environment to do so. If you have a fear of heights, for example, you can simulate various high-elevation environments for exposure therapy without actually putting yourself in physical danger. It’s a great way to start a personal journey of self-improvement and discovery and make the gradual transition to real-life environments a little easier on you.
