Happy Monday my friends! It is a thunderstorm here which we all know is not fun especially with kids who just want to be outside. I came up with some rainy day activities for my 3 1/2 year old. She is having a blast!
I’ve talked about mindfulness and meditation a little bit, mainly saying I’m trying to get more into it. So here we are again, I have not managed to get a good meditation routine down. I have been interested in meditation for a long time now, I love the whole idea of it. For me, I am constantly thinking of things; good and bad. I feel like my brain just keeps going and doesn’t have an off switch (like when I’m talking to someone, I can never stop 😂).
This morning I sat down and took some deep breaths. I sat there for maybe 5 minutes just focusing on my breath. It felt amazing to just sit in the silence. When I opened my eyes I felt a sense of peace and calm. I felt a little bit calmer with my kids. Of course they know how to push my buttons almost instantly, but I just took a few more breaths and it was all fine.
My goal is to practice at least 5 minutes of meditation every day. I’m hoping I can eventually practice up to 20 minutes but that will take awhile to get there.
Do you practice mindfulness or meditation? What helps you calm your mind? Do you use an app? Feel free to leave me tips!
Thank you all for stopping by!
