I started meditation in my yoga classes 6 years ago, real guided meditation. That had a huge impact on my life and my person. I was more mindful of my own body, more focused and more serene in my everyday life. But that’s not what I’m living now. I was in law school back then.
Adding meditation and journaling in my day now is great but it takes more time and with work as a lawyer and school part time (because yes, why not, tax lawyers are in demand), I feel like I’m adding +3 mindfulness/happiness -2 stress/to do/less time to sleep. So, as I said, overall it’s positive, but I’m trying to find a way to manage my journey so I can make more of it.
As you meditate you get what type of thoughts you get and the ability to not get drowned in those thoughts. Makes me calm as well and it is my self care routine
