Day 4 of the cleanse, after all that "quantum cleansing" I was seriously thinking that learning to meditate needed to move up my list of things to do, and quick! But where to begin? And how? Being Type-A, I became instantly concerned about doing this properly. Meditation seemed to require a lot of investigation, reading and research. Man, I'd really need meditation once I actually figured it out.
Stress suddenly descended and then there it was: a post on one of my fav blogs, Whoorl about this very thing! The universe truly does provide, doesn't it? Thank you, Sarah James, for being the Type-A meditation guinea pig and finding, and test-driving, the fabulous meditation site GetSomeHeadspace.com designed for busy meditation novices.
Simple, easy, ten minutes a day, led by its very nice-looking, sexy-sounding British founder (and former Buddhist Monk) Andy Puddicombe...what more can I say? Get on it and get some! And definitely watch the pre-meditation videos on the GetSomeHeadspace website for inspiration on why you're doing this and what you're moving towards.
So how was it? After my first ten minute session I felt like I'd just completed an hour and a half of yoga. Calm, serene, refreshed...just lovely. And not how I usually feel at 1pm I can tell you. Obviously I'm still in the kiddie pool of meditation, but won't you join me? The water's perfect.
