I loved your blog and pictures about the day out in the park under the deep blue sky. And I loved your poem, it makes me feel your joy.

I'm glad you liked the idea of the walking meditation.
I understand how focusing on breath and heartbeat makes mediation more difficult.
I have the same issue with deep relaxation, just like you, when I wake up in the night, I use this technique to quiet the swarming thoughts in my head, and fall asleep.
It is not intended for this purpose, but as I tend to fall asleep whenever I do it, I figured it may have the same effect when I do want to sleep... and it does.

Thanks for the comments on my blogs ...

And the one you made on the NaNoWriMo one and not being able to dress up.

Shhhhhh....no one knows I would be allowed to dress up. Shhhh ... or someone will expect it of me!

By the way, I am assuming you are NOT doing NaNo this year? I mean, your writing schedule is BEYOND way too much as it is.

Thank you for reading my blog!
Actually it took me about 18 months to get confident enough to stop tracking... but some people never track everything, and others keep going for several years.
I guess it is the most important in the learning phase, and when things go wrong.
At other times it is just personal preference: safety or freedom, well-known routine or adventures ; )
Good luck to finding your own way!

I loved your comment about exercise intensity on my page, especially "I mean that we seem to THINK we should make every workout as difficult as possible." Very good observation.
