Effects after 5 days without meditation
This morning, I got annoyed quickly…so quickly that it got worse and I was annoyed to be annoyed. Infernal circle!
Did you already have this feeling?
I hate this feeling and I thought about the reason of this sensation. I realized quickly that I did not meditate during the last 5 days….
Usually, I meditate every day, it’s a routine that I have at home. But this week, due to the Christmas period, I was spending the last few days at my parents' place. And for some reason, I did not integrate my morning routine in the day. It was not because I did not have time, it was not because I was lazy, it was just not part of my routine in a different environment.
At home, it’s like a ritual as I do it as soon as I’m awake. I have my cushion of meditation, my place where to meditate, it’s my little cocoon.
But here, I did not implement any place, which is now that I think about it, a mistake…
After only 5 days without meditation:
I feel annoyed quicker than usual;
I feel disconnected from my breath;
I feel less patient than usual;
I feel more disconnected from the present moment;
I feel some signs of anxiety in my body;
I feel disconnected from my body.
Luckily, I still practiced Mindfulness in general with some daily activity, but this is a live example that reminds me that meditation and mindfulness are now part of my life, of my healthy life.
I just need it in my daily routine..
It’s not a tool that we learn in the books, it’s a tool that we implement in our life. And this is part of my life now.
So tonight, I have a date with the floor and my body scan meditation and I’m looking forward to it !!
