For the month of May I have accepted the challenge of meditating every day (for as little or as long as I can).
Tuesday 1st May:
This is what happened:
I've only ever meditated in a group setting before with someone 'talking' me through the journey and then 'bringing' me back. So I decided I would try for five minutes and see how it went. I grounded myself in my office chair, feet firmly planted, slowed my breathing, tried to cut out the extraneous noises from inside and outside the house and tried to clear the clutter from my mind. I was aware of the hum of the computer and used it as a focus against all the other noises.
When I came out of the meditation and looked at the clock the total time was eight minutes. So I think I succeeded! I did feel more refreshed for the rest of the day so I will attempt it again today.
