Finally my head was not sleepy today! During the minute prep time, a coworker brought the EKG machine back into the exam room. I invited him to join me but he declined, alas.
Kept the meditation at 10 minutes again, perhaps I’ll go back to 15 tomorrow. Meditation as a process seemed to require less effort. The thoughts and mind wandering were profuse, but I wasn’t as bothered by their appearance. The returns to watching breath were short, though. There are a lot of to-do lists that pop up during meditation.
Is that a typical phenomenon? Do you experience a lot of “gotta do” thoughts when you give yourself a chance to sit still?
