I feel like I am constantly stressed. I think that fact that I am insanely homesick and life is heading through a bumpy road isn’t helping either. I have been meditating a lot lately but I have been forgetting to post about it.
Each time I meditate the results are all different. I recall a few times when I have been meditating I would be focused and it seemed to be working and doing it’s job. Next thing you know a thought would pop into my mind. Usually it’s “how am I going to blog about this” or “I shouldn’t forget to post something about my experience” After I would just start thinking about that instead of focusing on my breathing and humming like I should have. So a few attempts would work for the most part then I would just get distracted.
Other times it works perfectly fine. I would go for about 15 minutes straight with just clearing my mind and focusing on my breathing and humming trying to make myself be relaxed. When I finished, i felt great! It felt like i woke up from a nice deep sleep, i felt refreshed and ready to conquer whatever was given to me.
Meditation is all about focusing, it takes a lots of mental energy to keep focus and let yourself lose your trail of thought. I’m starting to realize that meditation is really something that I should have looked into a long time ago. When i do it properly and don’t let myself interrupt my focus, i feel great! It’s like a brand new me, I’m refreshed and and no longer stressed or worried about what may occur.
From my experience so far, i would definitely recommend meditation to absolutely anyone. It sure has helped me out a lot and i’m sure if anyone does it, it would help them.
