Balance Journal

Meditation has reached commodity status in the west. Through both subscription-based apps and products that promise a life free of anxiety, the idea of a ‘mindful lifestyle’ is in the zeitgeist. This magazine lovingly satirizes commercialized meditation with spacious spreads, delicate typography, and soft image qualities.

Meditation has certainly helped me cultivate a clearer mental space, and I found it through the app ‘Headspace.’ However, while I’m truly invested in the topic, I think it is healthy to keep a critical eye whenever an imagined life is being sold to you.
