For the first time ever, I did an AM practice session soon after I had woken up and showered. Since I was experiencing some trouble with intrusive thinking yesterday, I thought that maybe practicing before my brain had really kicked into high gear with the stress/challenges of the day would help me quiet down.
As I found last night, it was pretty easy to relax physically, but my mind did indeed present a pretty constant stream of thoughts again. There may have been a few lapses of mental quietude near the end, but for the most part it was hard to quiet my mind.
We’ll see if this just takes a few more days to overcome, but so far Level 2 is indeed challenging! It probably also has a lot to do with my current life situation, but this means that the level will be all the more beneficial for me, and I’m excited to see my progress at the end of a week.
