Those who have completed the first 60 days - how is it going?
I moved away from purely sitting down for an hour to meditate. Occasionally I do it, but it depends on the week. Though sometimes, just after waking up I will just stand down in the sun, and just enjoy the moment.
On the flip side, I have been practicing being more mindful throughout the day. When I eat for example, or when I go for walks early in the morning. I'm looking for pockets where I can practice it.
So in the way more mindfulness, but using meditation less. It has been very rewarding.
Especially during the walks. I have a river not too far from my place. It is very painful and enjoyable to walk there in the morning, watching the sunrise and the organ reflection on the water. And also ironically my chatter tends to be more intense when I walk than when I lay still.
I am also experimenting with journaling. I have been doing it for years occasionally. Recently, I have moved to a daily consistent practice, in the form of a stream of consciousness. I realized it helped tremendously when my chatter is especially high. I will write down everything that crossed my mind and an hour after, the chatter will be much quieter.
