Early Struggles with Meditation

Nowadays, it doesn’t take much for me to sit and meditate. Once I decide I want to, I go and do it. It wasn’t always like that. When I first started meditating, it took a lot for me to decide on a time and actually follow through with it. Being able to sit for more than just a few minutes at a time was another problem I faced.

Is Meditation One of Your New Year’s Resolutions? Here’s What Worked For Me

I actually started meditating in the middle of the year. So technically meditation wasn’t a New Year’s Resolution for me. Personally, I was never successful in completing my New Year’s Resolutions, so I don’t partake in them anymore. Instead, if I want to make a change in my life, I try to plan and act on it as soon as I can, which can be at any time of the year.

But once I did decide to start meditating consistently, here’s what worked for me:

How Meditation Helped My Insomnia

I turn over and lay my head on the other side of the pillow. I open my eyes and check the digital clock laying on my nightstand. 3:02am. Those big red numbers are taunting me. Laughing at me. They’re asking me why am I still up and why am I struggling so much. I have to get up in 4 hours and I haven’t’ been able to fall asleep yet. Why can’t I just go to sleep?! Okay, I’m going to close my eyes and lay perfectly still. Then I should be able to fall sleep right away…

If you’ve read the About Meditating Millennial section of this website, you would know that I am engaged to be married. After being together for almost five years, that is no longer the case. My ex-fiancée and I are no longer engaged to be married, and we are no longer together.

Meditative Walking: My First Attempt

After I meditate, I get in a positive mindset. I am working on bringing that positive mindset to my daily life even when I am not sitting in a meditation session.

Lately, I have been doing a lot of reading on meditative walking, something I believe I can incorporate into my life. On weekdays, sometimes I am unable to wake up early enough to meditate in the morning before work, so having a meditative walking session during the day would be a good alternate. I usually take a walk during my breaks anyway, but I always have my headphones in and listen to music. Today, I decided to take out the headphones and do my first meditative walking session.
