Yesterday I did an evening meditation for the first time. I kind of got to the end of the day and crammed it in before bed. It was surprisingly relaxing. Perhaps because I followed the guided meditation (Sonima) - it felt like 10 minutes flew but...
unlike this morning when 10 minutes with just my thoughts felt like eternity. By the end i was trying to bring my attention back to my breath and posture but my thought chain was "i wonder if the clock is still on" ...deep breath in ... "Jeez, 10 minutes is a long time"...deep breath out "did i accidentally set the timer for 1 hour"...deep breath in "am i slouching? yes".... sit up straight..."i must be in the final minute"... and on it went!
Once it is over, i do feel a good sense of accomplishment, but it is hard work and needs real self control!
Happy Fathers Day to all the dads out there!
