First - I made it a WHOLE WEEK! I have completed 7 days straight of 30 minutes a day "detoxing". Yahhh!
On to week 2! I pause to say that I do not feel this is a habit yet, though. I could easily fall off, as was evident of yesterday.
I pulled it together today! I committed to my 30 minutes early in the day. I had a set plan in my head as I pulled out of my driveway this morning. I stuck to it!
I have been craving the sauna. I suppose we all do that -- get stuck (addicted) to one "thing" for awhile, then eventually move away from it and into another. Food, hobbies, exercise routines, TV shows... I can see how it's a pattern of human nature. Currently, sauna seems to be my go to.
Today, I listened to my body and I went with it. I purposely didn't take my phone with me! Since yesterday, all I did was squander time and use it as a distraction.
Instead, I used the time to meditate. I had been wanting to do that as well, so it was a double win meditating in the sauna! Funny, even in relaxation I feel proud about being productive. Sheesh!
I had a great sauna meditation. I felt like I really got to connect and let go at the same time. I was pondering some ideas, and I felt like I received some clarity. Clarity always comes in the spaces of silence. It's not coincidence. It was a nice reminder that the answers are often right there... we just have to tune in and be quiet enough to hear them.
Happy wellness Wednesday, and welcome to week 2!
