    Day: 7
    Date: August 7, 2021
    Time: 7:10 a.m. to 7:25 a.m.
    Duration: 15 minutes
    Experience: Concentration was targeted on inhalation and exhalation cycle. One disturbing thought dominated my mind for a while which was the result of my volunteering yesterday. A terminally ill patient also got COVID and one of her neighbors brought details of her funeral home details to the Hospice so that she could be sent to the right place she had already booked for herself. I contemplated a lot on that last night resulting in it becoming a major thought. At best 2-3 minutes of calmer mind today towards the end. I need to figure out how to control the attention my mind pays to certain information and events. No symptoms of any backpain or leg sleeping. The breathing was a bit heavy due to that one disturbing thought.

    Day 6: 6th August 2021
    Time: 8:30 pm to 8:45 Pm
    Duration : 14 min 59 sec
    Experience: well this was such a bummer today. After I skipped my morning wake up meditation I thought I'll do it in the night before bed. The challenge in night is my baby needs me n doesn't allow me get up from next to her. The moment I get up she wakes up. (Wonder how they can sense) anyways as I was lying down I put my head phone on and went on with a meditative music with timer on for 15 mins. Some thoughts were crossing and I wanted to upgrade my timings from 10 to 15 mins . Then I was just going with the flow , not controlling the thoughts. Suddenly I felt 15mins is too much for me and let me stop and look at the timer . Well I opened my eyes the timer started ringing . SO i did 14mins 59secs :) I got a realization 15 mins is possible for me .

    Day 7: 7th August 2021
    Time:6 am to 6:05 am
    Duration : 5 mins
    Experience : Downgraded to 5 mins from previous day's 15 mins. had planned a day trip so my mind was occupied with that but I wanted to catch at least on 5 min meditation :) A quick one . No comments on how I felt. Mind was only thiking about the trip :)

    Day: 8 of 100
    Date: August 8, 2021
    Time: 6:41 a.m. to 7:00 a.m.
    Duration: 19 minutes
    Experience: Rythemic inhalation and exhalation experienced within 1-2 minutes at the start. Thoughts were more what I consider insignificant matters. The focus was on acceptance of train of thoughts and viewing them as not my belonging. Body temperature maintained throughout the session. 4 cycles of inhalation and exhalation per minute with no heaviness in breathing. I had lost track of time.

    Navagraha meditation - usually on saturdays it can be done. Focussing on the planets gave me feel good attitude. To go deep in that, if you know your running dasa(planet) you can focus more time on that planet during the meditation. Total time - 15 minutes approximately

    Tried thuriyadheetham, but thoughts disturbed a lot. Not felt the solace at the end of the
    meditation because of too many thoughts.
