So this weekend I did a few guided meditations and it was really fantastic. I have been out of practice for several weeks but I had some opportunities this weekend when the house was quiet, there were no commitments or pressing matters and so I made the time to do it. I’ve written before on the benefits of meditation for managing anxiety and depression and I’ve also written about the struggle to maintain a meditation practice.
I don’t know if this weekend will kick off a new and sustained period of time where I can practice mindfulness meditation, or if in a few weeks I’ll fall out of the habit. Obviously I’d like to keep up the practice. If you have been successful in establishing a regular meditation practice what is it that’s working for you? What are the challenges? If you’ve also tried meditation but struggle to make a habit of it, why do you think that is?
As always I welcome your feedback and input!
