Life is often a blur of busyness on the outside and an unending, unproductive stream of consciousness on the inside. I’ve long been aware of the need to slow all of this down, but now I’m taking action. Starting April 1 I am going to make mindfulness a habit.
I’ve tried meditation on and off over the years, often using apps or trying to self-guide. I recognize now that I need a system, and I need accountability. I’ve owned Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World for two years now, never making it past week two.
This time will be different because I hope many of you will join me on this journey. We all know the benefits of meditation and mindfulness, but we struggle to make it a priority. Let’s drop the excuses and commit to this program.
Starting April 1 I will walk through the book here on the blog, with weekly posts and daily updates in the comments. Please join me in this challenge. If you haven’t already, pick up Danny Penman’s well-regarded book, Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World.
Drop a line in the comments if you’ll join me on this eight-week challenge. You’ll definitely need the book to take part, I highly recommend the paperback rather than the kindle version.
If you’ve always wanted to make meditation a habit, this is the perfect opportunity to get it done in a practical, guided, and accountable way. I could use your help too.
