Today is day four of the 21 Day Meditation Challenge for Perfect Health with Deepak Chopra & Oprah. I’ve tried meditation about a bazillion times before and I have to say, I am starting to like it. Previously, I would get super wiggly and get up and start making lists. But that was when I was meditating on my own.
I’ve found that when I do a guided meditation, I have a much easier time letting go. If I do it in the morning, it’s a great start to my day and if I do it before bed, it helps me sleep better. I’m thinking about finding some CD’s of guided meditation to put on my phone so I can do it on my lunch break. I’m really excited to see how doing it for 21 days straight will affect my health, day 4 seems like too soon to tell.
As for my other resolutions, today is day 14 with no coffee! A lot of people have asked me why I would want to quit coffee. Well, friends, the reasons are numerous. First off, it’s extremely acidic and creates an acidic environment in your body. You want your body to be alkaline. If your curious about reading about all of that jazz, I recommend, Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr. Second of all, I felt like I needed it. I just don’t like feeling like I HAVE TO to have something. It makes me feel extremely out of control. Ick.
Do you have any experience with meditation? Any tips for not letting the mind wander?
PS. Yum was one of the meditation mantras this week 🙂
