Back in November 2016 I was invited to do a 30 day meditation challenge that my husband was doing and I thought since we would both be doing it that we would be each other’s support system. Well I made it 2 days and that was all she wrote. He did great until we were out of town for the holidays and that can throw off anyone’s schedule. Since the new year I have been trying to get a little in each day if only to have 5 minutes of peace. My house is far from a quiet place to relax between a crying 6 month old that never seems to be ok with where he is unless he is in your arms walking around and an almost 3 year old that thinks he can do whatever he wants. So how do I fit in meditation? Well I wait til everyone is asleep most of the time or if a miracle happens and they both take naps at the same time. I use a meditation app called “Insight Timer” and it’s free. It has guided meditations or you can just use a timer. I am not to the point where I can do it without a guide. My mind goes 1000 different ways and it’s useless. It has some guided sets that are only 1 minute long and up to an hour. You pick what works for you at the time. It gives me a much needed break and it relieves stress.
Take time for you today and figure out what works for you.
