    Asa Pond Learns to Chill Out

    I read 10% Happier by Dan Harris a few years ago and it sold me on meditation (sounds like a similar style of approach). I really want to read his new one too but time is definitely an issue. My issue is that I can be mindful during a walk or taking a coloring break and not have time to use my Aware app - but it still has a meditative feel, and I'm trying to figure out if I want to count it. I'm not thinking I do - I want to create a good habit so I'm leaning towards enforcing a strict meditative practice for at least this challenge. Then I can try more mindfulness practices... (Also - I think you were the one who posted the code for free access to Aware so thank you!)

    Asa Pond Learns to Chill Out

    Good start to the week. I'm using gravity yoga from yogabody to loosen up. I didn't realize how tight I was until I actually started to stretch and having the guidance of the videos and not having to think about what and how I am going to stretch is really nice. I'm actually feeling my body get less tense. AND I've stuck with it for a week now so yay! I'm still trying to decide what counts as "meditating" because I know meditating doesn't necessarily mean sitting in lotus pose and listening to breathing - so maybe just intentional mindfulness? But that feels like cheating. So - that's still up in the air.
