Challenge Accepted

meditate for 10 minutes a day

Meditate every day, for just 10 short minutes. Sounds so simple right? To sit yourself down in a quiet place, clear your mind and essentially zone out for just 10 minutes… oh boy how much this little but significant test is bringing me to my knees! Right now the best place I can find to sit quietly undisturbed at home is in my wardrobe!

Meditation is not new to me, but as time is short, especially on days I have to work, I decided that to give myself any chance of success I would begin with a simple 10 minutes a day meditation. I downloaded an App called Headspace. The problem for me is finding 10 uninterrupted minutes when both hubby and I work and we have 2 children, well… if you find yourself avoiding chores, then set yourself a task to meditate every day and watch the chores get done!

I know, I know, if it’s important to me, then I will make the time and that only I can make this happen. I also know that it doesn’t matter how many motivational blogs I read, that it’s purely up to me! This is part of the challenge though, I knew this would be a big test for me, so I am not surprised by my resistance. It’s part of the deal. I have challenged myself to a battle and my will is the defensive and the offensive. Half of me wants to succeed and meditate every day, and half of me wants to stay in bed and press the snooze button again.

So what’s the solution? Well, I think I have one and it’s called “Get yourself a meditation buddy!”

Starting tomorrow, instead of pressing the snooze button, hubby is going to find himself in the lotus position, joining me in a morning meditation! 😉

love & light xx

    • Hello Anita! Meditation is going pretty well, somedays I get interrupted by my children, other days I could sit there for hours! I try everyday, even if it’s not at the same time, but mostly I do it before I get out of bed (it’s cold here in the mornings still) but when the weather warms up, my plan is to go outside onto my deck and then incorporate some yoga too. That’s my plan… easier said than done? 🙂 Take care and thanks for visiting!
