I’m 12 days into my meditation practice. I really felt a difference yesterday when i finished my 15 minute session. My hands felt like they had sank into my thighs and the soles of my feet were flat on the floor (I mostly sit on a chair while meditating). Today I was more distracted – a little more noise here at home, even before 6am! My mind was fairly jumpy with early morning thoughts also. I guess on some level I was anticipating rising earlier to practice, so the monkey mind revved up it’s chatter!

I took the plunge and subscribed to headspace.com for a year. I’ve made countless starts at meditating, but faltered after a while. I previously shied away from rising earlier to practice meditation. This time I feel more committed and feeling the difference in tiny ways on some days is a nice early boost.

I’ve no doubt it’s beginners luck, but that’s ok. I’ve been here before, so I know what to expect. There will be frustration, excuses and procrastination. Thats when the real work begins. Thats when the changes come.

Perk up, lean in.
