This week's question asks:
What helps you to stay committed to your personal mindfulness practice?
If you struggle to stay focused on and committed to your personal practice, you're not alone. However, it's worth exploring what might help us to stick with it. When you DO maintain your practice, what are some of the conditions that allow for that? You might note anything from a good night's sleep to sticking with a short but sustainable practice to meditating with a community.
Welcome to the community @Sheetal! It's wonderful to see you're beginning the 100 day challenge. Thanks for sharing you reflections. I'm glad that the practice of placing your full attention on the breath was calming for you. I personally find the breath very stabilizing and grounding.
1) How does it feel to put your full attention on one breath?
I realised, we take breathing for granted.
2)How does this practice impact your state of mind?
When I put full attention on the breath, I felt calm.
