Lower the Bar

I'm incredibly proud of my meditation habit. I worked hard for six months for it to become a daily ritual. I'm up to 182 hours on Headspace! It's been life-changing. 

Which is why I'm shocked that the past few weeks have me off the meditation band-wagon. Joe now picks up the kids earlier - amazing for our family life, horrible for my meditation habit. 

To get back in the groove, I'm giving myself permission to lower the bar. I don't need 20-minutes of mindfulness. Success is now doing any type of meditation every day -- two minutes counts. 

How often have you not done something good for you because you couldn't do it at a certain level? Perfection is the enemy of the good. What does 'good enough' look like for you instead? 

I tell myself that no matter how busy I am, I have five minutes. So do you.
