Last month I set out to improve my sleeping habits, and after having it go fairly well, it’s time for February’s goal.
Meditation has been on my to do list since Yoga Journal’s Meditation Revolution 28 day challenge in July. I was all set to start getting into the habit of meditating, but after reading the instructions, I ended up putting it off. The instructions said to meditate at the same time every day, and I just could not make that happen unless it was right before bed (also discouraged). So instead of breaking the rules and making meditation fit my life, I gave up on it and set it aside for another time.

No excuses this time. For the month of February, I will make time to meditate once a day. Even if it I can only squeeze in three minutes, even if it’s before bed, and even if I spend the entire three minutes battling to get my mind to quiet down and stop telling me all of the things I’m going to do next. I am going to build my practice so hopefully by the end of the month I will be doing longer meditations, but really the goal is just meditate every day, even if it’s only for a few minutes.
