It is a good thing I set that 10 minute timer…sometimes it is the mediator between meditative state and rounding the corner to sleep. 🙂
Today I meditated in my car before returning home from school.
The last several times I’ve used my 30 sec prep time to say a little prayer or give some gratitude. I find it does indeed prep my mind/body a little more for the sitting.
Today even though my brain was all over the place, I managed to start counting breaths towards the end of the sit and got up to 13 before the bell rang. Not sure if I could have maintained focus until 21. Lol. Today was just one of those days where paying attention to my breaths did not cause my chest to feel tight – part of why I have trouble focusing on the breath.
It was also one of those sessions where when the sit was done, I opened my eyes but really did not want to move my body. It was definitely relaxed, kind of heavy. I really didnt want to move. ♡
