I have always struggled with meditation. But I know it is good for me and if I keep practicing, I will start to get the hang of it. Anyways, I have been experimenting with different poses or things to think about, what ever might really work this time.
Today I decided to meditate in my underwear. I'm so tired of looking down at my belly or hips and feeling disgusted. My thought, mind you it is very experimental, was that I could meditate half naked to get more comfortable with myself. Maybe this will help me love my body, even if I'm not exactly where I want to be. Plus, if I can meditate half naked and all vulnerable, I can meditate anywhere, right?
You know, it was kind of all right. I think I actually got myself into a deeper meditative state for a full 5 minutes. I did not feel uncomfortable and I think I was smiling the entire time; especially afterwards.
I may have even been able to go longer than 5 minutes if my boys had not burst into my room to ask a question. "Gross mom, don't do that in your underwear." Maybe now they will learn to knock first.
