45 minute session - D1

Came home after work specifically to meditate, was feeling anxious before. Now I feel calm, centered, and prepared for the rest of the day.

45 minute session - D1

Felt very anxious prior to session, considered upping medication. first 20 minutes felt extremely relaxed and at peace. mind chatter was gone. rest of session was more difficult to focus but still felt beneficial. Feel calm and very centered, will consider using discs as a meditation aid more often.

Became distracted throughout session, did not get discouraged and gently came back to breath. thoughts arose "im doing this wrong" "im not going to feel relaxed after this" some anxiety arose.

45 minute session - D1

Woke up feeling anxious, those feelings have all but diminished. Feel relaxed, blissful, and confident looking forward. I have come to realize that these feelings are accessible to me in any moment, and they are not restricted to when I meditate. I alone have the power to work through tough feelings.

First 30 minute meditation

Definately reduced feelings of sadness. It was difficult to stay focused during the entire 30 minutes, changed postures a few times, and caught myself looking at the clock, especially towards the end. More practice at this duration is needed.
