Today was the best I’ve felt in ages.

I have bipolar, and my latest depressive episode has lasted months. I’m quite a proactive person, and I’ve tried all sorts to try and lift my mood. Medication, exercise, choir, crochet, more sleep, less sleep, you name it, I’ve probably given it a go.

Lately, I’ve been feeling rubbish, utterly unproductive and generally a bit ‘meh.’ Something needed to be done.

Having a crack at meditation

Now I’m definitely not what I would describe as a ‘woo’ type. However, I am the type who will try anything once. So, this morning, off I toddled to my friend Geri’s meditation group. I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Geri’s house is a haven. There’s no other word I can think of to describe it.  Everything in there is handmade, and if you like what you see, it’s likely she’ll have a workshop running soon to show you how to make it too! There’s a gorgeous, very friendly white German Shepherd called Storm to welcome you, the kettle is always on, and the house just feels so full of love and light. This might sound a bit airy-fairy, but once you walk in the door you’ll see what I mean.

Whilst I’d had a go at a few of Geri’s craft workshops, and absolutely loved them (check out Following the Joy on Facebook), this was my first crack at meditation, and I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Geri put me right at ease. I think I could have nodded off there, it was so peaceful. She talked me through some progressive muscle relaxation, and I had to do a lot of visualisation. By the end of the session, I felt relaxed, much happier, and I just KNEW I was going to have a great and productive day. I’m not sure how, it just worked!

If anyone fancies getting their head in a better place, and getting their week off to a great start, I’d definitely recommend this. It’s on a Tuesday morning from 9.30 at Following The Joy, 8 Eaves Lane, Chorley.
