A month ago, I started meditating to clear my mind from clutter. I wrote about my journey here and here. Today I am halfway through my 2-month experiment with meditation and I am thrilled to share my observations:
- I find that waking up early to meditate works best for me. Although I haven’t disciplined myself to do it on a regular basis yet, this simple ritual gives me a good kickstart to the day. It works wonders for my stamina, my overall energy levels and mental strength for the day.
- Pairing up a 10-minute guided meditation (which is easily accessible for free on youtube and other specialty sites) with a 30-minutes yoga session is an optimal combination for mind-body connection.
- I noticed that when I offer myself some “me-time” to just NOT think and focus on my breathing, I became calmer, more posed and confident. However I struggle with maintaining that “zen”-state thought the day.
- Compared to 2 weeks ago, I feel an improvement in my breathing (I can take deeper breaths and I am more aware of my respiration) and I can better concentrate on my work.
For the next two weeks, my goal is to increase the frequency of meditations and dive in more into the subject.
See you in 2 weeks! 🙂
