Sundays have always been a somber 24 hours for me. Ever since I was a kid, Sunday was recognized as the “holy day” in which you wake up, are forced to go to church and then come home to dinner with the family and some quiet time. Now that I am an adult, Sundays bring a different type of vibe.
My Sundays nowadays are spent relaxing, drifting in and out of sleep, reading, watching tv or just playing around online. However, despite all that relaxation, there is still a apart of me that feels like something is missing, and I think its a Sunday morning meditation routine. Look at it, after working all week and partying, frolicking or doing house chores all Saturday (this is all hypothetical if you have a normal work schedule), Sunday just seems like a day that should be used to replenish and rejuvenate the mind, body and soul from the week behind and the one ahead.
In some ways I feel like this urge for a Sunday meditation is a runoff from my spiritual experiences as a child growing up in a Christian household where Sunday mornings were dedicated to a prayer devotion before church. Even though I have veered off into an even bigger eye opening spiritual experience that is bigger that any religion, Sunday morning being designated as a time to find your zen has stuck with me. So even if I don’t meditate for the rest of the week, maybe I should start designating a few minutes on a Sunday morning for some mind-body spiritual alignment.
What about you? Do you feel like Sunday mornings call for meditation? Let me know in the comments below.
