So it probably seems a bit odd that the high and mighty Andrieh Vitimus is doing something so simple as a walking meditation. There are a couple reasons for that. First, over the last few months I blew out my knees. I can walk, I just cant go down to a knee. Its a pain in the ass, so I am working on fixing it with Chi and physical therapy.
So this is alot more about restructuring the lifestyle by walking. That is phase one of this work.
Today I walked for 30 minutes:
What I did was basically this: http://www.magical30.com/2015/06/walking-meditation-research-applied-day-1/
on any point I was stopped by traffic, I did some condensed breathing which well, here is an example.
My plan is to work up to doing condensed breathing through out the walk.
Effects: Solid improvement in mood, better energy levels. Knees hurt a little at end of walk ( after stairs).
The main difference here, Is I am still doing other magic in addition. Before I started, I could tell the force of mental inertia is strong on this point. Oh you have too much to do, you should check email… blah blah blah. I have to really watch that to get through the 30 days.
On the flip side, right the fact I could not keep up with the pr work, does get to me. I just have to let that which is not critical slide.
