Option 2:

And
Option 3:

Looking forward to this, I felt huge benefits from the last one.

Going to attempt five silent mins sitting now.

edit… made it just over six mins, focused on breathing and a mantra at times … mind was wandering so said a prayer during, that was a first… still got some nice calm moments and relief from it, feels nice to say. Namastae

Well done. Have you tried eyes open, watching a candle flame? I really love how peaceful this feels to me…

I did a silent 10 min with a candle straight out of bed this morning. I find this is the best time for me as my head hasn’t started spinning yet. Maybe it’s cheating!!! :sweat_smile:

I am going to try a new bedtime meditation tonight.

This morning I did a 15 min seated meditation with Delta waves. It was a struggle keeping my mind of the burning pain in my body. I am think I need one of those little floor seats with a back on them so I have some back support… might look into one. I enjoy being cross legged and upright but the pain is really distracting. I did however manage the full 15 mins after continually turning my mind back to my breathing. Practice, practice, practice.

Anger visited ne near the end of the meditation.
Just a passing impatience. How angry will I get on the 30 min sit? Staying curious :hugs:

You can do whatever you like they are just ideas. I know for me its easier to have a guide to follow.

Do you have something in mind?

I usually fail miserably with challenges. This one seems doable though. I’ll give it a go. Looking for a morning meditation now.
