After my 30-day meditation challenge, I don’t think I’ll be continuing with a 10 minute daily meditation practice.
At the start of the month, when my schedule was comparably free and flexible, I was able to sink into meditation without thinking about what was on my to-do list. But since being back on campus, it has become harder to find the time and motivation to meditate.
On one hand, I recognize that 30 days might not be enough to feel the benefits of meditation. On the other hand, if meditating feels more and more like a chore, I don’t want to force it.
So, here is how my 30-day meditation challenge went…
I’ve now done two weeks of my 30-day meditation challenge, and I finally can say that I haven’t missed a single day.
This month, I wanted a challenge that would help me transition back to campus for the academic year.
Like on many university campuses, my campus environment can breed anxiety among students.
To counteract this effect, I wanted to care for my overall wellbeing by starting a daily meditation practice. Here’s how it’s going so far…
In a 30-day meditation challenge, I will be meditating for at least 10 minutes each day this month.
Meditation is mainstream. Especially with popular apps like Headspace and Breathe increasing its convenience and accessibility.
A mind and body practice, meditation encourages focus, awareness, and balance—all of which will help me start my senior year of college.
So, a 30-day meditation challenge seems like the ideal form of preparation!
