I am thrilled to announce that according to my mind and body tracking device I have managed to achieve more than three minutes of calm and peace. More than once even! I have managed a full stretch of nine minutes once, other times six to seven minutes. I am pleased to say I have held this tracking of peace and calm a dozen times!
These are major accomplishments for me. Granted I’m still no closer to knowing what that feels like when I am in the zone of peace and calm. I also can’t tell you when I’m in the zone of focus either. Although I’m very good in this according to the device. Once again I have no clue how that feels when I’m in that moment.
According to my coach, I just need to pay attention when the device alerts me to being in one of these zones. Here’s what I don’t understand, if I pay attention when I’m in this zone doesn’t it take me out of the zone? Or is this yet again another one of these things I don’t understand.
The only thing I do know for certain is that I do not find these moments of peace and calm, nor even moments of focus, when I am attempting yoga or meditation. Apparently meditation drives me to a tense state and yoga doesn’t seem to register at all. So am I doing something wrong? Is the device faulty? Or is this the way things go?
