Meditate Twice Per Day for 30 Days

Experience brief

I returned home from a bike tour in the desert of New Mexico a couple days ago, during which I had some beautiful experiences and learned a lot about myself. I always struggle a bit with knowing how to integrate the lessons I learned while out on these bike tours and think meditating more methodically would be a great way to reconcile the two worlds I've straddled over the past week.

I've undergone the meditation training espoused by the Transcendental Meditation collective a few years back, but have fallen out of the rhythm of the regular practices since. Ever since, I've recognized the benefits of the practice and have wished that I was more regular with the routine. By making it an experience in my bucketlist, I should have more of the drive and impetus for following through.

I'm wanting more of a connection with my inner world, a world I experienced to be so rich and wise during my recent trek. I want to more tightly knit together this world with my surface-level world as I recognize many of the questions I struggle with are answered when I'm in alignment with the needs of the depths below the surface.

Rough Start

May 28, 2019

So far I've been having a bit of trouble getting into the habit, often remembering the morning meditation but forgetting about the evening one entirely or remembering it too late to stay awake during the session. The idea is to have the morning routine be a good start to each day and the second one being a wind-down from the day and a transition into my own time after work.

I haven't been back to work since starting this bucketlist experience, not quite sure how the morning routine will work out. Ideally, I'll create the extra 22 minutes by going to sleep and waking up that much earlier. But knowing myself, this will be a bit difficult -- part of the challenge and the unintended side effects of changing up one thing.

Here's to resetting the 30 day counter to 0.
