May Resolution {Learn To Meditate}…

Today is the second day of May!  Oh I am all off my rocker.

Raymond made me invited me to the Wells Fargo Championship Tuesday and Wednesday.  I love hanging out with him and I love golf courses.  Two days of it and I am officially done.  I’m exhausted.  My legs hurt.  I have zero energy to tackle anything.

Not good when you are a business owner.  Not good.  I have stuff to do and no energy to do it with. 🙂

May (almost summer) is the month I vow to learn to meditate.  It is the second day of the month and I have yet to tackle any goals.  I even had a milkshake today.  Not exactly in line with January’s continuing goals. 😉

May Resolutions

  • Take better care of my body
    • It is time to wear sleeveless tops and bathing suits.  Working out and eating clean are important always, but even more so in the warmer months.
  • Get up earlier
    • Moving the wake up time back to 6:45am.
    • I struggled with the consistency of waking up at 7am for the month of April.
    • I think getting in the bed at or before 10:30pm will be vital!
  • Read one new book a month
    • Start new book after I finish my 3 typed and printed book reviews.
    • Made To Stick
    • May book to read: Made To Stick
    • Finish book review for Getting Things Done
    • Type book review for The Circle Maker
  • Make time a priority

A quick Google search led me to this amazing article about why and how to meditate.

How To Meditate Daily

Game plan

  • Start with 2 minutes
  • Meditate in the mornings
    • After reading, devotions, and coffee
    • Before typing my book review chapter and emailing
    • If mornings don’t work (Raymond sometimes gets up earlier than I am expecting), then after dinner and before bed.
  • Sit on a floor pillow.
  • Where to meditate
    • Patio seems like an interesting spot
    • Maybe the dining room/lounge if the patio doesn’t work.
  • Eyes closed or open?
    • I’m going to start with open and looking at the ground with a soft focus.
    • If that seems tough, then I’ll try closed.

Do you meditate?  Any words of advice/wisdom?

Until next time…
