🙏🏼37 days and counting. Today I found myself smiling (not sure if it was external but I felt it internally) when I settled in to meditate today. It was just a feeling of release, and goodness. I think a lot of people think meditation is sitting and not thinking, but what I have learned is that's not a realistic. We often are not realistic with ourselves and thus we come down on ourselves. We do not accept things as they are but resist. (Look me and my airy fairy talk lol) but for realsies....37 days and I am learning. I am changing. Take FIVE MINUTES, shoot THREE MINUTES a day and commit yourself to spending time with you, as you are now. Insight timer (the meditation app I use)has a whole section called "mini moments". I actually started out using it to fall asleep bc I struggle w falling asleep due to a racing mind, so even if you use it just for that you can find some time with yourself. Also they have a selection for kids and teens💁🏼 find some time in your day that works. On my days off I like to start my day with a session but days I work that's just not realistic, though it sounds dreamy, it just won't serve its purpose at that time. Most days I do it in the evening, or just before bed. It helps me to shed all the bullshit from day and just let go. I'm going to keep preaching meditation and Insight Timer bc damn it mental health is important and this has made an impact on mine, and this app is so accessible and user friendly I love it. Also we move so fast in our culture we just don't take time to stop, so meditate. Do it.
