21 Days....

They say it takes 21 days of doing something to make it a habit.

I have just completed day 21 of the Chopra Centre 21 Day Meditation Challenge! Woo Hoo!

So this is not my first foray into the "silence" I have been cultivating a "practice" for the last few years. I am so happy that this last challenge I was able to do the mediations everyday in succession. I have noticed that I am reacting less to situations that would normally send me off my rocker, that I am more appreciative of my surroundings, and that I am quite capable of a daily practice.

So tomorrow I begin a 28 day Challenge, one I was directed to by the owner of my Moksha Studio, from Yoga Journal. I subscribed to the challenge at the beginning of July, but decided to do the familiar Chopra Centre Challenge first. So if the links still work I have 28 more days of stillness ahead of me.

See you in the gap....



  1. Amazing. I am not sure that I could do meditation that long. I wish I could but I have never created a meditation practice. Looking forward to hearing about your experience.

  2. These 21 day challenges are an excellent introduction to meditating. They are short, about 15 minutes long and are guided so you are not just sitting in silence.

    Another way to begin is just to take a few minutes each day in a quiet place and just focus on your breath-don't try and change it or alter it just witness it coming in and out. You will have thoughts, like "oh I should write about this in my next blog" Or "I wonder where I put my reading glasses" but just acknowledge them and come back to your breath.
