A Thing a Week

Last week, I wanted to stick with my goal of having a 7 day streak of daily mediatation PLUS add in a 7 day streak of doing the 7 minute workout app.

The near daily meditation seems to be getting easier, as it's becoming more of a habit. I like do it at either the beginning or the end of the day.  If I don't have time in the morning, or just don't feel like it, I can make sure I do it before I go to bed.  I even find that it helps me get into the "ready for sleep" phase.  There was only one day I skipped.  I just forgot... But I'm still proud of myself.  It's my best week yet, for mediation.

The 7 minute workout should be easy to do for 7 days straight, but... I only did it 4 days.  A couple of days, I only thought of it as I was just about to go to bed.  And then, the last thing I wanted to do was a short work out that would definitely wake me back up.  Another day, I had just done so  much walking and bike riding, I had no strength left.  Not even 7 minutes worth...

What I think is that if I picked a time of day to consistently do the 7 minutes work out, I might fare better.  I thought (wrongly), "Oh, it's only 7 minutes.  I can fit that in anytime I feel like it."  Maybe I could have but I didn't.

So, I'll keep trying to make these more of a daily habit.  I like doing both of them. 

I haven't yet thought of what's my next "thing" for the coming week, but I will be doing a little traveling.  So I'll check in next week once I figure out what it will be.  As for the next week... I'm just going to keep trying to make mediation a daily habit.  Along with the 7 minute work out.  But I'm not going to talk about it here for a while. ;)
