3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
So much for a return to discipline - slept only 5 hours, albeit solidly, and no meditation yesterday! I did however get some housework done. I am determined to make a fresh start of things today. Mental discipline, particularly meditation, is essential to my wellbeing - and everyone else's! As I tell my own clients, mind-management is like personal hygiene - a continual lifelong daily necessity.
I've been giving the most recent "Daughter trauma" too much of my mind of late, and it's time for therapist heal thyself. Again this is partly due to a lack of sleep and meditation, but I also know that the only effective treatment is to focus on something that works, of which there is plenty to go at.
sleep! meditate! focus!
Are there issues in your life that it's time to address?
