Amazingly, I have stuck to two of my New Year’s resolutions: meditating and writing.
Each day, I have been spending two hours (at least) focused exclusively on editing JPC or working on my book project.
I have found that the time I spend writing and editing has become an inspirational and meditative time that I look forward and crave, because instead of stressing about not having written, instead, I think of writing as a relief from the stress of everyday life. This has made all the difference, taking writing from being work and transforming it into something exciting and relaxing to look forward to.
I got here by meditating in the morning, a little at lunch and in the evening. Each time for about 5-10 minutes. During that time, I try my best to calm my mind and then focus my thoughts (or blank them).
This has led to each meditation session being a source of inspiration for my writing or editing.
I will check in again soon with an update if this still continues to work.
