Meditative Stillness

I try to meditate for 20 minutes each morning before breakfast. In these endless days of sheltering in place, it helps but, not as much as I’m sure it could. Spoiler alert…I’m not very good.

The main reason, I drink two cups of caffein laden tea before I start, which give me the jitters. However, there are contributing factors too. For instance when my thoughts start to wonder, skittering off to some worthless but, for the moment, interesting topic, I’m slow to drag them back, preferring instead to think about what’s for breakfast than going back to dull chore of peacefully counting in and out breaths. Another reason, I always seem to have to go to the bathroom at exactly the wrong time…enough said.

I’m know there are better ways to meditate but for now, I’ll stay where I am because frankly I’d be lost without it.
