Meditation Challenge: Day 4

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:12 am by kellyfdennis

On Day 4 of the 10 minutes per day for 10 days meditation challenge on which I am embarking, I chose Morning Meditation on the Insight Timer app. This was a guided meditation with soothing background music. I sat inside today in my office because it was pretty hot outside. My office is serene and pleasant, so I felt comfortable here as well. I practiced the meditation during a pretty busy day and was hoping to create a little calm as I went into the rest of my schedule.

After convincing myself that I did indeed have time to meditate and it would help me with my busy day, I followed along and was guided through focusing on my breathing and then becoming aware of the sun warming my body from my toes up. I was able to focus on breathing and concentrated on creating the warm feeling from the sun in each body part as it was mentioned. I was aware of brief moment of monkey brain, but was able to pretty quickly bring  my attention back to the breathing and focusing on the warmth of the sun on my body. I sat for the whole 10 minutes and was not influenced by body discomfort today.

What I noticed? No surprise, this was more effortless because it was guided. The person’s voice was calm and soothing, as was the music.  I felt refreshed and energized at the end of the practice.

Interested and curious to see what Day 5 holds! Be Well and Have a Wonderful Day!
