Stormie’s (Attempts) at Zen Sunday

Last week I decided to give meditation a try. I am happy to report, I’ve been able to use the meditation cd each day. It did help me focus, and I was able to get at least one salvageable scene from the short story I am attempting to write. It was a ridiculously busy week with several looming deadlines. I made it. I did some very basic meditation to start.

Here are the details.

If you like, play soothing, meditative  music such as Lifescapes’s  Zen Relaxation cd. Sit comfortably in a chair, with your back straight, and shoulders relaxed. I was instructed to place my right hand palm up in my left allowing the tips of my thumbs to touch, and rest my hands on my lap. Eyes should be closed or only partially open. Then concentrate on each inhalation and exhalation, allowing thoughts that intrude to slip away without forcing them. Simply return your mind to each breath.

If you have another technique, please feel free to share in the comments.

My goal for this week is to keep up everything I’ve started, and add a guarantee of  at least  three servings of vegetables three days a week. I know, I should already have this habit. When I was younger I was a vegetable fanatic, now, I’m a meatatarian.

Are you making any changes in your life so you can be healthy enough to pursue your passion?
