I have completed one week of the meditation challenge. If you have taken on this one month challenge firstly, that’s awesome and secondly, congratulations on finishing one week.
Briefly, this is what I have learned over the course of the week:
1. It gets better – it’s really hard to sit still and focus on nothing, but believe me the more you do it, the better and easier it becomes.
2. Don’t beat yourself up. Sometimes thoughts crop up and you wonder “why the heck am I thinking about that now?” Who cares why you’re thinking about it, just observe the thought and let it move on. Once you remove yourself from the thought and become an outsider it is a lot easier to let it go.
3. Change up your time of meditation to see if one time works better than another. I was doing mine before bed, but switched it up yesterday to before dinner. Not sure what one is better at this point in time. With more practice however you should be able to do it anytime, anywhere.
Good luck this week with your meditation!
