Too many habits to establish at once.

I’m working on the getting out of the house and exercise goals, so I don’t think the meditating will come until I get those other habits under control. I will keep trying to find time to meditate though.

Well, I do actually want to do this...

I didn’t get to meditate yesterday, and it looks like I won’t get to it today either. I’m really a little bummed out about this, but it’s the weekend and my time isn’t quite mine on the weekend. I did tell my house-mate (i.e. my mother) that I want to meditate, so hopefully I will be able to work this in next weekend.

The other thing is that we had satellite TV installed today, so much of the day was wasted while the installation guy did his thing. And, of course it’s the closing ceremony of the Olympics this evening.

I have a plan

I found a resource on the web about Zen meditation – Beginning Meditation – A Zen Primer. I will try this method of meditation today (August 23, 2008).


This will be difficult since it’s an everyday kind of lifestyle change. First I have to educate myself a little about meditation, then I have to actually work it in to my morning routine.

The benefits of meditation definitely make it worth it though. From Psychology Today: “Neuroscientists have found that meditators shift their brain activity to different areas of the cortex – brain waves in the stress-prone right frontal cortex move to the calmer left frontal cortex. This mental shift decreases the negative effects of stress, mild depression and anxiety.”
