Sunday night. Great session, effortless. Not exactly sure why it was so easy. All I can think of is the following.
About 10-12 months ago I "discovered" my microbiome. From Dr Mercola and his interview with Dr Robynne Chutkan. Meaning I started learning all about it and changing my life to help grow my microbiome. Basically get in my best shape, ever. Needless to say this meant losing weight. Training this body of mine and later training my brain… enter Muse. Feed my gut bacteria is the key. This mean lots of raw fruits and vegetables, tons and not eating processed crap just pure awesomeness from Mother Nature. Rotating pasture farm animals and their products etc. Losing weight like this is easy. It just happens. But, you are hungry… for sure.
I wake up a quarter or half way through the night often due to hungry. This is completely stinky. Turns out I'm tired a lot. I do get up and eat at these times but not before lying there for 1.5-2 hours before hand.
Tonight and today I ate a lot. I need to put an end to this waking up in the middle of the night stuff. Last night I had a killer biceps, back and abs workout. I feel great and getting super sore!
The combination of being nice and full and feeling great from yesterday's training, perhaps enabled me to have a great Muse session.

After big day working in the yard then ran 4 miles then trained legs. Actually almost fell asleep during session. That was my biggest challenge during this one. Was relatively easy to get in the zone but drifting off to sleep a few times. Very relaxed sitting in this chair here at the gym. Feels great.

Ran 3 miles in the rain today. Was trying to get a Muse session in earlier after run but it just didn’t work out. Going to keep push to get sessions in close to the actual exercise event. I felt great after the quick run and I think would of had a great Muse session.

This one was ok. Happy with it for what it is.

Physical training seems to be a major key for me to help calm my mind. But it’s early in the game to make any definitive statements. After two years using Muse I will have a much better idea. 

All I want to do is just keep moving in the general right direction. I’m ok with having struggles and set backs along the way.

lol…. Tough one. At my kids tutor’s house and her husband came home and I’m sitting on his couch meditating and he’s talking to me….lol….. and of course I’m talking back to him it just does not make for a good meditation session.

I don’t consume much caffeine. Currently drinking a Kombucha which has a small amount of it. Maybe this plays a roll in lack of focus?

I found it hard to focus and turn off the internal dialogue. Also self conscious sitting in this parking spot.

Night sessions are now out performing day sessions…lol.

Poor sleep last night doesn’t help. Sometime it’s hard to whined down after a workout and a late meal.

This Muse session is after a 4.4 mile run and training abs and legs. Here’s the run:

Very easy to come back to the present moment after some distracting thoughts. Progress feels great!

Muse if you are reading this, perhaps change the app logic to calculate how many birds obtained per minute instead of just reporting, “You earned  at least two birds per minute…” 

In this session I earned over four birds per minute and it not any type of complex calculation to find that out. Just an observation…..
