What’s up you sexy son of a gun,
I’m gonna be honest with you guys, I’m running out of ways to say hello at the start of every post. To stop me writing the same thing every damn time, I’ll just probably get right into the post, then again challenges are what help us grow right?
Anyway, sometimes when I get bored and have nothing to do, my mind starts to think about stuff, and when I think about stuff, I get existential. I think my brain struggles to differentiate boredom from sadness. But other times I think boredom causes it.
For some reason yesterday evening, I was hit with this wave of helplessness and I just didn’t want to talk to anyone. I went up to my room and just shut the door and layed on my bed, feeling sorry for myself. I sat up after a while and decided to meditate for a bit, even though I really didn’t want to. I think it worked, because I found the motivation to get up and have a shower before going to sleep.
People always bang on about meditation left right and centre. Personally I can’t do it very well; I have a really short attention span, so after 30 seconds of silence I follow random thoughts without even realising it.
So for the rest of the week, I’m gonna meditate for 15 minutes everyday, twice a day. Once before bed, and once when I wake up. These next few posts are going to be about different aspects of meditation and the benefits of it, and I’ll tell you if I think they’re chatting shite or not.
