I realized that I needed to actually meditate (not just throw it off my goals list with an excuse). I also realized I needed a bit of guidance. Thank goodness for free apps from the Appstore. I tried this one as recommended by my sister.
There was a little too much talking but I did appreciate the idea the announcer made of feeling my body’s weight and listening to the sounds around you (usually with mediation you try not to focus on those things). When my thoughts wandered, I tried to focus mainly on counting (from 1 to 10) and following my breath.
It actually felt really relaxing and I even got an idea of something to paint #The100DayProject.
Something that helped me get in the mood was actually putting on clothes to mediate in. #GetUpDressUpShowUpNeverGiveUp
You also might notice that I didn’t actually get this post published on time. I did 10 sun salutations for the first time in months yesterday and my muscles really felt the effects.
