I have followed twice the 100 meditation challenge. Thank you. Beautiful results. Since I moved away from Mexico City, I don´t have a Sangha to practice in Cuernavaca. So this initiative has been wonderful for me.

I`m only on day 10 , I really loved the gratitude on day 7 . I was at home with a cold and  it put me into a different perspective. Being grateful just for a warm bed and for my breath . The time seem stopped for a moment so I can readjust my attitude.  With the  100 day meditation challenge I'm  feeling  gradually paying more attention to the moments that are happening front of me , and at the same time I'm forming new habits too. Started a gratitude journal too .

Very simple exercises but powerful. Thank you .

I meditate every day at this time.  My experience as I continue to meditate each day is freedom of the mind.  Comfort of control.  Owning my space in the universe.  If I do not meditate things get clogged and too much.  I have to go back and meditate.  then and only then I feel I am right with everything.  I began this when I had children.   One is autistic and it took a lot of energy.  

Breathing meditation alone gave me energy to get things done.  Moving through the day.  When I couldn't I would get sick.  Just my experience with life meditation.  

I love this community.  Wish I knew about it sooner.  Now is still a great time.  I am grateful.

I just started Day 1 today. Hoping it will give me the nudge to do my meditation every day which I’ve been falling short of lately!

Hi, I just signed up for the 100 day challenge. I did a 30 day self imposed meditation challenge and completed it except for one day. I have had several missed days recently due to the holidays and being too busy, so I am hoping putting myself to the next level, I will stick more to it. I am not very mindful even with meditation, but I can really tell when I have not been focused on it. I know my family relationships are better and I am not quite so impulsive and emotionally off track. I do have to do it daily, no question about it!

That's great!! Keep us posted on how it goes. And congrats on accomplishing 29/30 days meditating! Even when we struggle to remain focused/mindful, just carving out that time is beneficial I think.

Although I do a meditation it is sporadic since breaking my foot for the third time.  So this is my first day and I love it already.  simple and easy.  I will add it into my Qigong practice.  Thank you for the accountability.  I am really loving this mindfulness community.

I am not sure what is going on, all of a sudden I am not receiving any of the emails for the 100 day Challenge.  Any ideas?  I resigned up last night so maybe i will be in again.

Hey Paige,

That is strange! I wonder if something got accidentally flagged and sent to junk (I've done this before without realizing it). Have you checked there? Let me know if they're appearing again and if not, I'll check in with @Sean Fargo.

Yes, we figured it out.  I possibly just pushed a button wrong.  It happens since I am on as much as possible.  Thank you for the quick response.

    • enhancing non-judgmental moment-to-moment awareness   Hi All!  Here is your weekly dose of "5 Mindful Musings", a brief list of what's helping me live a more mindful life. What Helps Me Be Kind To Myself Compassionate Body Scan Meditation. Kristin Neff guides this powerful meditation to bring kind, caring awareness to sensations in the body, even if it's uncomfortable in the moment. Very helpful for processing emotions, feeling a sense of ease, and also for falling asleep.  What I'm Reflecting On 6 Reasons Why Mindfulness Is A Superpower These remind me how I can choose how to relate to any kind of experience, to refrain from judgment, to be with what's uncomfortable, to remember to breathe, to widen or narrow my perspective, to balance doing with being, and remember what's most important.   7 Things To Try When Mindfulness Doesn't Work These remind me that mindfulness alone is not always enough. Humans are complex, so we need a wide range of modalities to heal, grow and thrive. What I Wish My Own Schoolteachers Had Access To Teaching Mindfulness To Empower Adolescents. This is a powerful guide to help school teachers master the essential competencies needed to successfully share mindfulness practices with teens and adolescents.  "Wise and revolutionary. These are skilled and caring teachers giving you the real deal. They show how to soothe, inspire, and awaken the teenage spirit." - Jack Kornfield, PhD, bestselling author of A Path with Heart What I'm Exploring 20 Best Mindfulness Meditation Podcasts of 2020. This list from the team at Positive Psychology includes many wonderful mindfulness podcasts I had never heard of. Worth a look.  A Quote That I Love "The only reason we don't open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don't feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else's eyes." - Pema Chodron *Subscribe to our YouTube Channel for exclusive free mindfulness trainings.   And, as always, please share your feedback in our Mindfulness Community Forums. Which musing above is your favorite? What do you want more or less of? Other suggestions? Just add a post to the forum and let me know!  Wishing you well,    Sean Fargo Founder, Mindfulness Exercises       P.S. Spring Washam will join Mindfulness Mastermind on August 27th at 12pm PST!   Spring Washam is a well-known meditation teacher, author and visionary leader based in California and Peru. She is the author of A Fierce Heart: Finding Strength, Courage and Wisdom in Any Moment.  Spring is considered a pioneer in bringing mindfulness-based healing practices to diverse communities. She is one of the founders and core teachers at the East Bay Meditation Center, located in downtown Oakland, CA. Spring received extensive training by Jack Kornfield, is a member of the teacher’s council at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in northern California, and has practiced and studied Buddhist philosophy in both the Theravada and Tibetan schools of Buddhism for the last 20 years.  Members of Mindfulness Mastermind can access details about the workshop and the video link inside the Member Dashboard.
    • This week's question asks: What are some of your personal beliefs that you want to bring greater mindfulness to? We all hold somewhere within us beliefs that do not serve us. Which of your own beliefs would you like to bring greater mindfulness to? When you become aware of limiting or negative beliefs within you, what do you 'do' with them?
    • Hello Athena! Wonderful to meet you here. I've never tried labyrinth walking but am intrigued! Do you have any tips or resource recommendations?
    • Hi Priyanka! Great recommendation. I love this breathing technique.
    • Hey Ali, I haven't read that book so can't recommend from my own experience, but the description sounds great and probably very aligned with what you are looking for. If you read it, I'd love to hear your thoughts and reflections on it. Your expression of feeling depressed because of where you could be is not uncommon; I've heard quite a few others share how down they feel do to so much time spent caught up in bad habits and addictions. I know it can be a difficult feeling to experience, but it is a huge win (even if it doesn't feel like it) that you now feel a renewed yearning to work through this. That takes strength and courage!
