Well, this is my third day into meditation. Boy, this has been a challenge. But I have stuck with it regardless. I have had to learn to let my racing thoughts just go away which is really difficult. Yesterday, I succeeded and meditated for almost an hour. I have tried several different ways. Silence, the sounds of the ocean and sitting up in a chair. Sitting up does not work for me - I have to lay down and relax on the bed. I think you have to figure out what works the best for you. I find that if I stick with it, and let the intrusive thoughts just fall away until I am finished, I am much calmer when I get up. My heart rate is slower, and I am not so anxious or agitated. I know this is just the beginning, but I wanted to let everyone know that you should not get frustrated and stop - if you keep trying, it may work for you. It seems that the sounds of the ocean work for me, and my whole body relaxes. I am now looking forward to it each day !!!
