I am proud that I am finally meditating on a consistent basis. It’s been hard for me to do this but thanks to my habit journal, I am finally holding myself accountable for meditation and other good habits. I am finally at the point where I can slow down my heart rate through extremely deep breathing. I basically force myself to snore while I’m awake and I can notice my heart beat slowing down. I am tracking this data via my Apple Watch and am able to bring my heart rate consistently below 50 beats per minute after 3 minutes of deep breathing. Having a tangible outcome is very encouraging and I hope to continue observing the benefits of breath meditation. I also enjoy gratitude meditation but have been less consistent about that.
