Meditation: Day 1

Art by megdowntherabbithole on etsy.com

I’ve started a lot of new endeavors this year, and all of them are geared toward self-improvement. As I have a tendency to charge headlong down a path, and push harder and harder to try and get there faster, more efficiently… I have a tendency to burn myself out. Chomping at the bit, so to speak, to succeed. 

So I’ve added meditating every day to this list of improvements. Mindfulness.

So I sat this morning, for, I don’t know? Five or ten minutes. Just… basking in the excitement, the nervousness, the impatience… the hunger for more, more, more… and it’s amazing, I think, just how much difference in tension and stress five minutes can make.

So, day one, journal-ed and marked down. I’ll probably keep dropping these, with maybe a comment on something I’ve learned to improve technique. Mostly as a way to keep myself going. Keep doing it every day, rather than letting myself cram on other things and push it back and push it back until it’s 11 PM and I’ve not meditated at all.

Mindfulness guys! It’s a stupendous thing.

Also to focus on:
Spend less
Eat Healthier
Waste Less
Be more environmentally aware
Exercise every day
