(Cat Nap)

  [ The Experience ]

96 days ago, I challenged myself to meditate and chant for 40 consecutive days.  

It’s Day 2 of this 10 Day Meditation Challenge, and I am nearly to my 100th consecutive day of chanting and meditation.  I LOVE IT! It’s really nice to go inward.

Especially after a cat nap.

I took a lovely 45 minute rest and woke up, put on my headphones and turned on my Headspace App.  Today was better, since Andy seemed to talk less.  Funny thing happened: as I sat on the bed cross-legged in Easy Pose, the cat I am fostering starts to scratch herself on my fingers, and then found her way into my lap to rest as I sat in zen.

I took a cat nap, and then the cat napped on me!

[ My thoughts about Headspace ]

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 3.21.11 PM I think Headspace is a great and easy-to-use platform.  I love how I can track my progress and be a part of a larger community of simultaneous meditators. I also love that you can invite others to participate with you…

If you are reading this and want to join the challenge, add me to your Headspace App: “coachterag@gmail.com”. 

[ The Takeaway ]

At the end of the session, the guide, Andy, asked how we felt before and after the meditation.  I chuckled, because before I meditated, I felt super relaxed a la nap status. Afterward, I felt rejuvenated for a night of leading a group session, kickboxing and practicing yoga for my 30 Day Yoga Challenge.

All in all, everything is zen… 🙂

[ Question For You ]

Do you meditate? If so, what are the benefits you have seen for yourself? If not, does an App like Headspace make it easier to start?
