Well 21 days have come and gone and phase one is over. I have exercised regularly only taking a day off once or twice a week so as not to over do it. I am feeling great and motivated for phase two.
I used to mediate. I actually took a meditation class once and loved it. I was very relaxing and helped with my anxiety. I can’t even remember the last time I meditated, not good.
I have a book called Everyday Meditation: 100 Meditations for Health, Stress Relief, and Everyday Joy by Tobin Blake. I really enjoyed the book, it helped you get started and taught you techniques. Plus it does a little variation each day which I found helped build my interest.
So phase two of my mental spring cleaning is to meditate everyday. I have the book to help me stay focused on my goal and I also plan on keeping a meditation journal to keep track of my progress and to document my sessions.
Here is to the the first 21 days of a life long habit.
