On Sunday, I had grand plans of taking Deepak Chopra’s 21-Day Meditation Challenge.
Here is how its going:
The Day 1 email did not arrive on Monday. What could I do? I had no email. How could I start? I did resist watching Jersey Shore, turned off the TV at 9pm (after an awesome episode of Breaking Bad) and started a really good book recommended by my friend Lizard, Cutting for Stone. I felt a sense of accomplishment, but no meditation.
This morning, Day #2 was in my e-mail box. I had to get to work to do two hours of prep before my 9am meeting, but I did play a few minutes of Day #2 to check it out before I headed to work . (I debated whether I could meditate during my actual commute to save time. I decided, probably not.)
Key takeaway: I think it might be too “new agey” for me. Listen to this dude and tell me what you think. I am not sure I can listen to his voice for 18 minutes.
After my 12 hour work day the first thing I wanted to do when I got home was watch Bachelor Pad. New agey man was not top of the list. Not surprisingly, I can write and watch the crazy pants on this show simultaneously.
That’s where I am now….who knows if there will be an update #2?
