Gosh, I love meditating.
Usually I like to meditate 15 minutes before I start my day, and 10 minutes after my day is over and I am finally laying on my bed.
Sometimes I do it when I am on my way to work.
Its one of those things that if I don’t do it, I don’t feel right, or my day just doesn’t go as great as when I do meditate.
After I finished my acting school, I felt a bit all over the place and didn’t know how to center myself, my mind’s voice kept getting louder and louder, and I sensed I was all over the place spiritually (not a good feeling)
We used to do a lot of breathing exercises during class and I always felt like that would be a good routine for my day.
Also, I started reading Gabrielle Bernstein’s “The Universe has your Back” and through out it, she gives great meditation exercises.(An Affiliate link will be pasted below if interested for purchase)
I began watching videos on youtube and felt the necessity to perform meditating exercises before going to bed at first. It always became easier for me to pass out when I meditated, connecting my body to my breath and imagining my breathing was like the ocean near the beach, going out and coming in to touch the sand.
I was fascinated and I felt calmed and at peace before going to sleep.
But it wasn’t enough for me, I began my day feeling grumpy and in a rush, my thoughts were yelling at me from the minute I gained consciousness, and everything bothered me, it was frustrating
Then I decided to add it to my morning routine, before getting up and starting my day, I started to just meditate still on my bed, and it was an amazing decision!
Meditation for me is more of a necessity, my day just isn’t the same without it.
It keeps me sane.
I don’t get angry at people, I don’t expect things to go my way, I just feel zen! And if things get to me a little, If just goes through me like water.
If you want to keep your brain sane? Go lie down and trie to meditate.
Merry Christmas Everyone.
