My Meditation Practice Has Been a Journey




As we continue our collective journey toward mindfulness, I wanted to share a personal story that has truly transformed my life – my experience with meditation.

For years, I dabbled in meditation, but my practice lacked consistency. I would meditate sporadically and, undoubtedly, felt the positive effects when I did. Knowing I craved a deeper connection with meditation, I decided to set a challenge for myself – 40 consecutive days of meditation, with a twist. If I missed a day, I committed to starting over at day 1. Each session was only 3 minutes long.

This challenge wasn't a walk in the park; it took me about 4-6 months to complete. There were days when life got in the way, and I skipped a session, resetting my count. But the journey was worth it.

What unfolded was nothing short of miraculous. I began to feel a sense of calm washing over me, as if a storm within was finally settling. The ability to manage stress became second nature, and I found myself reacting less impulsively to life's twists and turns.

Admittedly, I've fallen off the meditation wagon more times than I can count. That's precisely why I make it a point to engage in a meditation challenge each year. The key, I discovered, lies in the consistency of the practice. The longer I sustain a regular meditation routine, the more profound and lasting the calming effects become.

Now, missing a day of meditation feels like forgetting a crucial part of my daily routine. It's akin to forgetting to brush my teeth – something just doesn't feel right. Meditation has become an integral part of my life, a sanctuary I retreat to when the chaos of the world threatens to overwhelm.

I would love to hear your stories and experiences with meditation. How has it impacted your life?
