Happiness Challenge Wrap Up: Part 2, Meditation

Throughout the 30 Day Happiness Challenge, I managed to meditate at least a little bit every day. Some days it felt like I was just checking off a box. Other days, it really helped me stay focused or make it through the day with an even keel. During the labor and delivery of the twins, […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 30

So, that’s what thirty days looks like. Huh. Meditation I got about ten minutes in this morning. Although, to be honest, it should probably only count for like five because I kept breaking my concentration to see if Theo was awake. You don’t want to be so focused that you open your eyes to see […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 29

Meditation Got in ten minutes at work this morning. I noticed that about seven minutes in (this is mostly a guess) that I felt my mind shift a little. It seemed to become more focused on being quiet. I’ve had this happen before, and I think it is some kind of sweet spot for meditation, […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 28

Actually got up on time. By the time I made it to work, though, I was wondering if my idea of when I need to wake up is still accurate. Meditation Despite traffic working against me this morning, I managed to set aside a few minutes for meditation at the office. I was already thinking […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 27

Yesterday when I made my comment about how I haven’t had that much practice doing this challenge on the weekend, I didn’t realize that this would actually be my last weekend to get it right. I don’t know that it would have mattered much if I did because today is Mothers Day, which means I […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 26

Oh, weekends. How you continue to vex me. I feel like I should be sleeping in on the weekend to help make up for lost sleep during the week, but I also know that getting up early allows me to get stuff done that might not get done otherwise (like much of these daily tasks). […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 25

Today went almost nothing like I expected, even up to this point when I’m posting past my bedtime. Meditation I did manage to get a short meditation session in this morning before I really got wrapped up in work, which was nice. I’m starting to think that it definitely helps get the day off right, […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 24

Something positive I’m going in a different order today because telling this story will provide a background, and some necessary detail, for the rest of the tasks. This morning, I was headed to work on time, early enough even to stop by Starbucks to treat myself to a coffee and breakfast pastry. It felt like […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 23

Let’s get this “keeping everything honest even when it doesn’t reflect too highly on me” business out of the way first. I completely forgot to do the app review last night. That’s what I get for a) putting it off; and b) swearing that I was going to do it. So, another failure. One I […]
