As seen in my last post, I am trying to incorporate meditation back into my routine. I am happy to report I am making progress. I have been using a free app, and I am on a streak of completing one or more three minute sessions a day meditating.
This is definitely a start, and I am feeling benefits already. I am feeling just a little bit more at ease. I think I am overthinking less – HA! I am even looking forward to my little sessions. I find myself taking a breath when I start to get stressed. This leads me to my next point.
I remember the times when meditation was a regular part of my routine, and I was ON FIRE. I felt amazing, so why did I stop? It embarrasses me that I stop doing something that’s working. I know better, but knowing better doesn’t seem to change what happens.
Also, it’s not just me that I have seen do this. I have seen sponsees, friends, and I have heard acquaintances in the program share the same story! Why do we stop doing something what is working?
I’m really not going to try to answer that question here. I think it is beyond my capabilities. I can say that I will be on the look out for me to stop doing things that are helping me grow, and I am DAMN sure going to keep making time to meditate.
What have you recently stopped that was helping you?
