Tried to do a brief meditation in shavasana this morning. I think I lasted less than five minutes.
Also tried meditating a few times while driving. My mind has been extra noisy lately. I’ve let some cravings get the better of me. I’m working on getting rid of the causes and trying to exist in contentment…I was actually pretty successful most of the day, but for some reason when I got home a flood of fatigue and exasperation.
33 minutes on elliptical machine.
So my ego hasn’t let up. It’s taken up the issue of my finances and decided to run amuck in my head. Money is a very sensitive subject for me. I think it’s because it makes me feel so helpless. I make a decent living, but I just have a shit ton of student loans and now the responsibility of supporting my parents. When I’m getting all worked up, I try to remind myself that everything is okay. No one has a gun to my head, I’m not in imminent danger, there really isn’t even an actual problem. I’m literally just making it a problem with my thoughts.
You don’t have to believe everything you think.
Do not go out to drink.
Do not eat garbage food.
