Sometimes I have trouble quieting my mind. I blame my astrology chart: Virgo Rising, Gemini MC, and a Mercury ruler. 🙂
I really ought to try meditating, but I never seem to get around to it. There are an awful lot of good reasons to do it. Tons of studies say that even 10 or 15 minutes daily can boost your memory, increase your productivity, lessen ADHD symptoms, and even literally change your brain. Apparently long-term meditation practitioners have more of those wavy, fold-y lines in their cortical brain. I’m guessing this is a good thing.
Have you ever tried meditation? Can you clear your mind? Or do you focus on a particular image?
I’ve tried and always end up mentally making out my grocery list or something else distracts me from following through with it.
Me too! I hear that it gets better with practice though. Also, I just never set aside time to do it. I think I just need more time in the day!!
This is something that I have never done but reckon it would be worthwhile. I have the problem that my mind is never quiet (Gemini too) and even if I do manage to find five minutes when I’m not doing anything, you can guarantee that my mind will still be working. Would love to know the key to getting it to just shut down for a while!
A friend who does meditate regularly says it just takes practice and diligence. I think I would do better by focusing on an image rather than trying to clear my mind completely.
