It's noisy in here again.
During Novembrat my morning routine was not what it usually is: my sleep patterns are always regulated by the person with whom I'm doing it, and the morning routine is usually the same. So, I didn't meditate.
Meditation is still something I'm learning to fit into my life, and it requires more of a dedicated time slot than say, brushing my teeth or eating breakfast. and even those I don't always do if I'm out of my element. So I just didn't. I got up with Bing and got on with my life.
But after the best part of a month not meditating, it's so noisy. My thoughts are everywhere, I'm falling into story telling (not necessarily the good sort) and I'm tetchy and easily stressed. Some of this might be end-of-year anxiety and Christmas anxiety, but I'm going to stick my ten minutes back in at the beginning of my day and see if that quiets down my brain. I'd forgotten how frustrating a noisy head was. And I'm also going to have to just find a time when I'm away from home to get this in.
The bright side, of course, is now I have a good idea of the benefits it had been doing me.
Oh, and I have Ameribelly because near the end of the month we forgot to eat properly and I had a lot of fat-rich American food.
And now, I have a 1001 things to do to get back into the swing.
