My 10 Day Meditation Challenge, Day 9 (The 1st thing)


My 10 Day Meditation Challenge, Day 9

(The 1st thing)

  [ The Experience ]

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

The first thing I did this morning, after sleeping in till about 10:30AM, was meditate.

I say this because I am prone to doing it later in the day, as a break from the flow of things, to rejuvenate my mind and recenter my soul.

But, a challenge is meant to push you, so I figured I’d stretch my comfort zone and meditate first thing today.

I found that the rest of my day flowed, perhaps even better than it already flows every day.  I noticed that my mind was definitely more still when I meditated first thing, as I had not been a-washed with the flow of life just yet.

[ My thoughts about Headspace ]

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 3.21.11 PMHeadspace is quite easy-to-use and interactive. The use of videos to present value alongside the meditations are great tools to help you understand the practice of meditation:

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 ]

I can see myself doing my best to start the day with meditation more regularly; however, I know that realistically I will find just as much use doing meditation at any time of the day. The key is to make time to do it!

[ Question For You ]

How do you start your mornings? Does it help the flow of your day?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 25 (Enjoy Simplicity)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 25

(Enjoy Simplicity)

yogachallenge

[ Do What Feels Good ]

Yoga is a feeling sport.  Do what feels good, and you’ll do just fine.

[ The Experience ]

On this 25th day of my 30 Day Yoga Challenge, I am grateful that I get as much out of doing my practice at home as I do going to the studio.

Today I have a lot of clients that I am working with, so getting to the yoga studio for a 75-minute practice would just add stress because I would feel rushed.  So, as I intentionally did poses that felt good, that were simple and that fit my schedule, I came out as rejuvenated as if I’d gone for 75-minutes at the studio vs the 20-minutes I did at home.

[ The Takeaway ]

I will continue to do yoga after this challenge. I trust myself to feel my way into doing what feels good for my mind, body and soul, which gives me the confidence that I will always know what I need in the moment as I integrate yoga into my day.

Busy or not, there’s always room for yoga.  

And the more I enjoy the simplicity in allowing myself to embrace the moments I can fit it in, the more I enjoy yoga as something that is accessible and doable.

[ Question For You ]

Have you tried yoga yet?

My 10 Day Meditation Challenge, Day 6 (Release Tension)


My 10 Day Meditation Challenge, Day 6

(Release Tension)

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 3.19.59 PM

  [ The Experience ]

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

I did it! Today is my 100th consecutive day of meditating and chanting daily.  Earlier, I attended a Yoga of Sound workshop at my yoga studio, and between that and coming home to meditate, I found that my body released more of the tension I have built up the last few days working through some deadlines I have for work.  (Luckily, I got through one of them!)

Sitting to meditate today, I was so surprised when the 10 minutes was up… it flew by! Regardless, I know it was beneficial.

[ My thoughts about Headspace ]

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 3.21.11 PMHeadspace is quite easy-to-use and interactive. The use of videos to present value alongside the meditations are great tools to help you understand the practice of meditation:

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

[ The Takeaway ]

After the 10th day, I am thinking I may not continue with Headspace app, simply because I am used to just doing it without an app, and I have a guided meditation that I enjoy. But, that’s in the future, still.  For now, I see that no matter how I choose to meditate, the key is to carve some time to do it because in the silence I am able to hear my body speak by way of aches and pains. As I listen, I can breath into those spaces, as needed, and my tension is released.

In a nutshell, meditation is good stuff! It truly is great for the body, mind and soul.

[ Question For You ]

Do you use meditation daily? If so, how has it helped you?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 17 (Yoga Or Nap?)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 17

(Yoga Or Nap?)

yogachallenge

[ What To Do ]

I love using tarot, astrology, Doreen Virtue’s cards (Goddess Oracle Cards, Ascendent Master Deck), and even flipping coins to help make decisions.  The latter has even helped me win $2200 in cash and prizes on a game show once…

Before the flip. Before the win.
Before the flip. Before the win. #LMAD

I love my helpers.  I also know that if you’re like me and use similar tools to make decisions, you resonate with their answers because you already know what to do.

[ The Experience ]

I couldn’t fall asleep last night.  My mind raced with ideas for my business.  They were great, appreciated thoughts, just not what I had planned when I got in bed.  I think it must have taken me about 2 hours to fall asleep.

With about 5 or 6 hours of sleep, I got ready and got to 10 AM Kickboxing. Then I had a day at a craft faire (well, 2.5 hours), and had to get back home before heading to a dinner with some friends.

I was going to catch a 4PM Hatha Yoga class today before going to the dinner. I decided to take a “30 minute” nap, and l ended up sleeping 2 hours and 15 minutes, instead.

[ The Takeaway ]

I didn’t make yoga class today.  I chose to be generous to my Self, to rest and flow with what my body and mind needed.  I was all the more merrier for it.

My day was filled with creativity and yummy physical activity. My evening was filled with laughter, our friend’s two young boys’ antics and delicious vegetarian food.

Yet, when we returned home, I still had time to do some yoga, so I did a 10-minute practice that included meditation, simple, effective postures and some chanting for my chakras.  Afterward, I immersed in a cleansing bath and the day felt complete.

So, did I Yoga or Nap? I did both… I did yoga and I surely did nap.  I did both in ways that suited my body, heart, soul and mind, and on my own terms.  I am proud of myself for allowing myself to flow with life, rather than forcing it into what I thought it should be or what I should do.

As I end my active day, I feel rested and complete. Complete in my Being and complete in accomplishing another day of my commitment to my 30 Day Yoga Challenge.

[ Question For You ]

What do you do to get to feel complete and whole?
