Next on my “Road to Oprah” list is “meditate.”
I’ve dabbled in this before, and I can say I felt some benefit.
But I didn’t stick to it.
(Have you read this website?)
So my plan is to start with 5 minutes of meditation a day. For the first week, I will do it in the morning, then try it at night to see which works better. Over the next 30 days, I’ll progress to 10 minutes a day.
As for my meditation method, I will begin by sitting in the “om” position and also saying the word “om,” because I like how it feels in my chest. It’s a healing word, don’t you think? There’s something positive about how it resonates.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
I’m going to determine my meditation success on three factors:
1 — Did it make me yell less?
2 — Did it make me worry less?
3 — Did it make me calmer in general?
