Hey everyone, I hope you are all having a peaceful day
I attended my first mindfulness group and it was fun. I actually had fun! I haven't said that about anything in a while. It was a 45 minute session in a dimly lit room. The room was small and I felt like turning around when I first went in, but I stayed and I am so glad that I did. We introduced ourselves and it felt like a mix between group therapy and meditation. We practiced guided meditation/visualization. It was truly something I have never experienced before and I am excited for my next group in two weeks! I felt so calm, actually at peace during that time. I have felt the most relaxed today than what I have felt in a very long time. It feels like I am getting my emotions back- I had fun, I felt peace, I'm looking forward to my next group. Even if it is only temporary, I am happy today. I. am. happy. today. Four words that haven't been genuinely thought or spoken lately. Remember, go at your own pace and take things one day at a time <3
Have any of you attended a mindfulness group in person? If so, what was it like for you? Or, are mindfulness apps preferred?
