I have been “attempting” to have a daily gratitude, meditation and affirmation and visualization practice for years and years…. and can honestly not tell you how hard it has been. True ugly confession. I have fallen off those wagons many a time to be run over ( in my own mind) by the daily meditation wheels of enlightenment.
Intellectually I feel they are all truly wonderful and helpful and blah blah blah!
Consistency . Really does make a difference. That is exactly my challenge. Dirty secret.
Well as long as it is a desirable temperature for me for swimming I think I have found a really cool ( pun intended ) way to keep up my practice . 45 minutes doing laps. I breath really well when I swim, and I am in isolation and then lock my brain in on repeating, affirmations, gratitude list, mantra , rinse repeat , stroke, breath, stroke, breath…. 45minutes later….. ah…..
Please let me know if you try it what you think. Can be the difference of going from dirt to delicious !
