Saying that the last few days have been hectic would be an understatement. It takes a tremendous effort to shift in any one area of life and I’ve been challenging myself to shift in multiple areas by taking on a different practice and/or different level of practice of transformation every day this month.
I am not quite halfway through my challenge-month but I am clear that I will need to center myself if I want to continue successfully through this process. That leads to today’s challenge.
Today’s challenge: Meditate at least 30 minutes every day.
For the next 19 days I will take 30 minutes to counter the general stresses of life and the added pressure of these daily challenges. Here are some possible benefits of meditation:
- Reduced stress and anxiety
- Improved sleep
- Pain relief
- Reduced risk of heart disease
- Reduced stress-related ailments
- Improved sense of well-being
- Improved overall health
- Clarity of thought
- Increased concentration
- Increased creativity
- So much more
I’m really looking forward to to tapping into my inner depths for healing and centering. Namaste.

Today’s victory: Besides it being a gorgeous day today, I was able to set realistic goals for myself today. Instead of forcing myself to do a million things today, I did a few things and they were done well.
Gratitude: I am grateful for the coming weekend and the space and time I am taking to nurture myself each day.
On the horizon: Writing and reflection
