How is your meditation practice going? For me, not so much
In the mornings, which is usually my time, I’m either too tired. Or too rushed. Then when I finally do get a moment to sit, my mind starts going nuts. There’s no meditation happening! It’s more like a go through my to-do list and freak out about what’s not getting done.
Can you relate?
It’s times like this – when my practice is lagging – that I have to remind myself to stick with it. When I skip the morning session, I must try again later. Or tomorrow.
And when I do sit, but my mind won’t shut up…I have to keep at it with patience. And acceptance on where I am that day.
Because like learning to play a new instrument, meditation takes practice. The progress comes with consistency.
I’ve found that inspiring podcasts can give me a nice boost when I’ve fallen off track. In addition to guided meditations, I’m loving the life lessons which help get me realigned with what matters.
