Dear Alpa, As you know, after I am done with my meditation course, ( I did basic course from Art Of Living) I wish to sleep longer than usual. luckily I have a break for this week from school ( I work in a preschool ) . I really enjoy and practise at home this week - 30 min daily. Each day is a new experience and wish to stay there in that state. physically my activities are down than before. I wake up at 6.00 am in the morning. I do some exercises for 30 min and start doing my duties. Now that I need to fit another 30 min in the morning, I dont know how to manage regular exercises, meditaion, house hold works, my school, kids, husband etc., Pls drop in some tricks how do you manage all these with 1 hr of meditation every day ? lucky that you do with your sister. After some months, I wish to join my kid and husband also in this course, because, I want to synchronize my vibrations with the family. I want my family members feel what I experienced. Let them get benefited in life as I am.In our city, they have arranged follow ups for the next 5 weeks , once in a week to work with the teachers from there. I see the changes around me in a positive way. Also tell me that should I eat less than before since my activities are on the lower side physically? I want to let you know that some of my emotions got stirred up nicely during the course and still not completely settled. I am figuring out some specific time and spot for the work to be done daily. I am very much disturbed by small environmental sounds and family circumstances and did not get the full effect as I did that in the course among one of 1000's of people in calm atmosphere. I think the group has more power than individual and environment plays major role. what do you suggest? I know waking up 5.30 in the morning , will be more ideal for me. finish the exercise and finish the meditation and start the day. but right from the day I practice at home, I wake up aroung 7.00 or 7.30 in the morning. I dont know how to wake up early . my body is wanting for more sleep and I am taking nap in the day time for almost 1 hr. from next week, I cant do this nap. Also, I have enrolled in evening college for 2 days in a week. will be back home only by 10.30; so, I can go to bed by 11.00 as the earliest. dont know how to manage. pls suggest. Though sounds silly, I need help in this situation to continue with the work started.
