I Meditated Daily For 30 Days – Here Are The 4 Lessons I Learnt

It started again – my anxiety attacks. I knew what (read: who) was the reason, but… I had to deal with my sweaty palms before I deal with anyone else. 

This has happened in the past too – this kind of heartbreak, this kind of anxiety, this kind of helplessness. 

So, this time I gave up.

I gave up on being helpless. 

Because I knew if I don’t change, nothing else will change. I can’t be expecting different results when I am putting in the same kind of effort. 

Like any other time, I decided to brainwash myself with peace and calmness. 

I started reading up books and blogs about “how to become peaceful”.

And one thing that was the most common in all the blogs and books I read – it was meditation. 

I bought the paid version of the “Insight Timer” app and decided I’ll meditate for 30 straight days, without any break. 

So, I Meditated Daily For 30 Days – Here Are The 4 Lessons I Learnt –

 

It’s TOUGH.

Anyone who’s telling you otherwise is just fooling you. 

Meditation is tough, and it demands a lot of effort. 

Also not to forget, anything that is worth having, never comes easy. 

 

You need consistency.

When I don’t meditate for a week, I need to start it over. Like anything else, you need to be consistent with meditation. That’s why I made this commitment of meditating daily for straight 30 days. 

It’s better if we put this in our routine, and make it a habit.

 

You need patience.

The first day I meditated, while going through an anxiety attack, I cried. With tears rolling down my cheeks, I couldn’t meditate. But then I did anyway. 

A lot of people cry when they meditate, initially.

And that’s why it requires a lot of patience. And practice too.

 

You need practice.

There was a time when I was meditating for one-hour straight on a daily basis. But then for some reason, I quit meditating, and when I resumed it after a few weeks – the maximum I could meditate in one sitting was only for a few minutes. 

You need practice. I know this because when I started meditating, doing it for 1 minute was tough. But then I practiced doing it more and more. And I could do it for an hour.

The result of all this? 

I changed.

And it was probably the best change in me so far. 

I slowed down. I became calm. Things were looking clearer to me.

And I became peaceful. 

All this – just because I meditated for continuous 30 days without a break.
