Be still and know. So easy to say, but so challenging for me to put into practice. I feel like my mind wanders 100 miles a minute, even when I give it a task to focus on, such an “breathe in, breathe out.” Being still does not come naturally to me. Even in moments when I allow myself to literally sit still, I fidget, I pick up my phone, I allow my mind to wander. Stillness is scary to me. Because it requires me to sit with things that are uncomfortable. This is a meditation I need to do more than once, that’s for sure.
