Good evening, dear ones. I trust you had a lovely day. Mine was just a bit strange.
Not sure what it is but my mind was just not into it today. I could not concentrate or focus to save my life. I had a lot of numbers work today and all the numbers I was looking at were jumping all over the page as if they were taking on a life of their own.
Seriously, is that what it’s like to be dyslexic? Do your numbers and letters jump around? I’m not sure what that was but I was so glad when my workday ended. I took an hour nap after that. I don’t care for my eyes to play tricks on me like that. Not fun.
Do you have days like that where your brain will just not compute and try as you may to focus, your brain will just not allow it? I hate it.
Anywho, not sure if I feel better yet but I made myself work anyway. And resting in the bed, mostly, ever since. I’m sure I’ll be better tomorrow. I guess my stomach does actually feel better. Just exhausted, physically and mentally. I know a ton of people have had the flu lately. I don’t think that is my prob, thankfully.
I’m kind of bummed because I had all these plans to clean and organize and then work on my book but that, like yesterday, got stomped. Oh well, tomorrow’s another day. It’s only 8pm and I’m ready to call it a night. How pitiful is that?! Maybe I need the rest. I have so much I need to do, though! Ugh. I feel so lazy and lacking any accomplishment today.
On to more benefits to meditating daily (before I fall asleep):
- Less Cortisol
- Stop Alzheimer’s, Dementia
- Better Than Hypnosis
- Balance Chakras
That was probably the best part of my day – the meditation, as it helped me to slow down my mind a little. Just a little. I didn’t exactly quiet my mind in meditation today – that’s super hard for me. After that, I exhausted myself with my mind going at what seems a million miles an hour. What’s that about?! I thought meditation was supposed to help steady my mind, not speed the thing up?! I just feel crazy today. Hoping tomorrow is much better. I feel like my brain and body ran a friggin’ marathon today. I’m tellin’ ya, I am weird. Is it the meditation that’s making me crazy?!
Oh, and my brain has come up with things I forgot I needed to do, so now I feel the need to add about 50 more things to my already too long To-Do list.
Do y’all have insane days like this?
I suppose I can say that I do have more days lately where I can focus better – just not today – and I’m sleeping deeper, which is saying a lot. I’m such a light sleeper, usually, that I can hear when a cat or other creature is walking in the grass outside my bedroom window. I live in the country so we get plenty of wild animals. Lately, though, sleep has been better, deeper, and I’m starting to remember some creative dreams, which is super cool. Not sure if that’s the meditation or not, but I’ll take it.
Have you been meditating at all? What’s it like for you? Are you experiencing benefits or is it making you crazy?
