Type Om Negative... Meditation
Where to begin?
It has been a hell of a few weeks since I returned to my job. I could go into detail... but it really isn't important. Let's just say I'm having a tough time shaking "it" off (and yes, I listen to the song "Shake It Off" a lot).
"It" has been overwhelming me... creating anxiety and other toxic physical feelings. I've been off balance... or better put, a pain in the ass for my friends and sweet husband.
I'm pissed at myself for letting worries take away from wonderful moments... especially because I believe in treating each day like a gift, not a guarantee. I am ready to shut up my fear.
One way I've been trying to combat the negative is to incorporate meditation into my daily life.
For those of you who can meditate - hats off! You are a special human being. I, on the other hand, am struggling.
Working out has always been my go-to relaxation and meditation activity. I feel in the zone, relaxed and focused when I get my sweat on. But with the leg still recovering, working out is a no-go.
So, meditating is my new thing. And like many a Type A'ish gal, I'm still working on finding my flow.
If you have meditation rituals that have clicked for you, please let me know. I'd love to hear about your experience.
