Making Progress

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Just completed a 21 day mediation challenge and boy did it help me reduce my stress and reframe how I think. By reducing stress, the urge to gnaw was greatly reduce, the stress hormones were not wreaking havoc within my body. My blood glucose numbers have been coming back down to previous levels. Plus I think it is keeping an ulcer from redeveloping.

So with September just around the corner, it is time for me to get a plan in place. Mediation will definitely be a part of it. Those few minutes make a big difference for me.

If you have 15 minutes, here is link to a free sample of the challenge.

    Wonderful self-awareness! I love it how the positive action spills over into good results in multiple areas!

    Your follow-through and planning is an inspiration to me!

    I have been AWOL for awhile and need to catch up, but I can't believe that meditation may have staved off an ulcer, and that you definitely notice the difference in "munching" impulses. It's obviously something you need to do on a regular basis. I think I'm way too ADD to manage meditation...which is probably why I need it. :(
