Adapting to Vata: Meditation

The self-care portion of my experiment has been much easier. I started meditating a short time ago so I included it in this experiment I think I am making some progress in settling my mind and not having constant chatter all the time. Over the last few months I have increased my meditation to 45 minutes and I meditate nearly everyday.  I have been meditating when I wake up: if I get started with my day it seems much harder to stop and meditate. I have used several different breathing practices and tried several mantras I also attend a Mindfulness meditation class so I have tried different things we have done in class. I have found that I can say a mantra and still have my mind jumping all over the place, I have only just begun and I am going to continue this practice for ever I hope. I think Meditation does help me center and prepare for my day.
