One of my other new year's resolutions was to start meditating daily. For some reason, I never got around to this one. Well, I figure better late than never.
Starting tonight, I'm going to meditate for at least five minutes every day for at least 30 days. I'm very curious if I see a change in my stress levels and clarity because of this.
I really believe we need to treat our health as a whole, part of it through diet, the other through exercise, and lastly our mental state of mind. I've read a lot of articles lately on the benefits of meditation. I think it's time to stop talking about it and just do it.
I'm not sure really why I keep putting it off. I mean, who doesn't have five minutes to spare? I've tried setting my alarm clock a few minutes earlier, but first thing in the morning I a just too tired. At bed time I just want to go to bed. But really, these are just excuses. Like anything else in life that takes effort, like exercise, it is about developing a habit. That is why I am committing to this for 30 days. After that, I'm hoping that I will have developed a habit.
