    //A video is posted on the nexus by a user named Kealohi//

    //The video starts by a small and almost completely white, apart from the yellowish spot between their eyes and some on their wings, anoloa who was sitting on the floor of what probably was their living room. The small alien was wearing a loose one piece like outfit, though no sleeves or shoes were present.

    The room was decorated like a stereotypical grand parents house and a bit dark - only lit by smooth dim lights. In the background was a globe like lamp, emitting a weak but colorful shifting light. Almost looked like an aurora borealis caught into a crystal ball//

    "Hey people of the Nexus! This is Kealohi, uploading my second video" The anoloa exclaimed cheerfully, its antennas twitching briefly


    "Glad some people seemed to have liked the idea I previously shared, even if some comments were, uh, odd to say the least. But today! I have something different. A few tips concerning meditation, perhaps for those who would like to give this activity a try or simply, beginners."

    "Living around here can be stressful and sometimes our minds get overwhelmed with stress and emotions we dont really have control over. Whats nice about meditation, its that it helps relieving some of that stress and give our heads a well deserved break - plus, it can be done practically anywhere and can be done at any time"


    "First!" He would give his knees a pat with each of his hand "I would recommend to get in comfy clothes. Something comfortable that wont restrain any movements or make you feel uncomfortable. It makes it easier to keep focus. Wont feel like you need to move or scratch a spot thats itching.


    "Second i'd say...be patient with yourself! This actually may seem easy to do at first, but focusing entirely on meditation can be quite difficult for an unquiet mind. It might take you a couple tries before you can finally get some benefits from it, but dont give up! You'll get to it eventually. If it is difficult for you - maybe try putting on some music in the background - no singing though! Just calm instrumental."


    "Three, if you can, sit in a spot you like, feel relaxed and obviously - safe! It could be your room or on a beach or like me, for example, I really like meditating in the forest! Especially if I can find a creek or river nearby"



    "Four, get in a comfortable but healthy posture. Im not going to develop much on this because this relies too much on your species in most certain cases." A little shrug was given, almost as if a bit disappointed he couldnt say much on this topic


    ''Now fifth and last point. This one is a bit more personal but i've heard from many people that it helps. Might not be for everyone though!"
    The moth shifts in place, seeming excited about this part most

    "Analyze your senses - by that I mean, focus on what you smell - could be incense that you lit before starting - What you hear - maybe its the sound of the nearby river trickling down - What you feel - the grass agaisnt your legs and feet. Even the taste of your own mouth! Unless you ate something that doesnt taste good...maybe wash your mouth and teeth, if you have them, before meditating"

    "Obviously, vision isnt one since i'd highly recommend to keep your eyes shut during this whole thing"
    And there was a brief pause there

    "Some of you may think - "but wont this be distracting?" - Yes. It could be, but dont overthink them. Just take note of them." The insect like boy took a deep breath once he was done with the talking, staring at the camera still and tilting his head some

    "Anyway! Thats kinda it. If you have any questions about this all, feel free to leave a comment. Ill try to answer at the best of my knowledge. See you all later~"

    Normally I'd call this sort of thing ridiculous but you actually made that look relaxing.
    As for an application to keep your senses sharp, I might consider giving this a shot.

    JUST KIDDING. I DID NOT LIKE IT. YOUR SENSE OF SELF-WORTH WILL DRASTICALLY DROP DOWN NOW, AND YOU WILL FEEL HORRIBLE ABOUT YOURSELF.

    Or I know someone who did. There are multiple ways that I could know about your strange antics.
