Have you been trying out taking meditation mini-breaks throughout the day? How is it going? Did you plan to take a few mini-breaks during the day but only remembered once? Did you at least have the intention to try? If so, that is great!
Too often we belittle the progress we are making in meditation, rather than appreciating it. We immediately go for the dissatisfaction, focusing on all the ways we come up short, rather than appreciating what we were able to accomplish. No wonder we can so easily lose interest in meditation!
Instead, we can build a positive energy buzz around our meditation practice. Take a few moments at the end of the day. Reflect on how, despite a lifetime spent mostly chasing distraction, we spent a bit of time meditating. Celebrate the few moments you meditated, especially if you took a mini-break or three during the day. Then visualize yourself doing it again tomorrow… Have fun!
