Oh life – you crazy devil!
It never ceases to amaze me how the Universe keeps me learning and growing.
At the start of this self-imposed challenge I was looking to have a clear mind. I wanted clarity in order to make decisions easier, be more in the moment with my toddler and just handle daily challenges easier.
Well, day 6 gave me quite a challenge to face. Food poisoning. I spent the whole day feeling awful. Fortunately, my husband was at home and able to take care of the kids while I rested and ran back and forth to the toilet. Not pleasant at all! The last thing I really felt like doing was sitting for 20 minutes and listen to a guided meditation.
Instead, I put into practice what meditation teaches, which is watching my thoughts in each moment. Being mindful of my state. And simply breathing through the pain. Instead of sitting for a meditation session, I had many meditative moments.
What I had learned from the previous days had enabled me to move through the day with ease and grace. Instead of being angry, upset and frustrated, I just went with the flow. I surrendered. I allowed others to take care of me. And the most amazing thing? The negative voice in my head, the one that would tell me I had to be superwoman and look after my kids AND get over feeling like shit, was silent.
My mind was clear.
Day 7 was a celebration day. I integrated my meditation into my day and then reflected on the week that had been. I feel grateful for what I had experienced and hopeful about what my future would look like if I kept up the regular meditation sessions.
Here’s the thing, making time for meditation is easy. Developing a habit will take time and devotion and sacrifice. The affects will be felt immediately but also overtime you will learn more and more about yourself.
Would I recommend you to try a 7 day meditation challenge? HELL YES! Make it suit your lifestyle. Make it enjoyable for yourself. Don’t impose too many rules and restrictions on yourself. Be open to trying something new and you will be surprised at where you end up at the end of 7 days.
I’m running a 30 Day Self Care challenge, starting 1st of December. A big part of it is about taking time for yourself each and every day. I can’t think of any better way to do that than to meditate. If you are keen to be part of this challenge, sign up here.
Meditation is SO beneficial for our mind, body and soul. Give it a go, I promise you won’t be sorry!
