200 straight days of meditation; now what?

I love my Ten Percent Happier meditation app. Yes, I blog about it probably too often, but I really feel moved to express my love for it publicly from time to time. What’s to love?

This morning, when I opened the app to do my first-thing-in-the-morning meditation, I got a notification (complete with electronic confetti– the best kind) that I had meditated for 200 days straight. Sadly, I was too slow to capture it in a photo to share. But trust me, it was festive and gratifying.

I’ve been regularly meditating since 2020, almost every day. I’ve written a lot about this most recent return to it: here here here here, for example.

What does it mean to me to have managed 200 days in a row?

There’s comfort in habit. But it takes attention to keep it going. However, the habit helps me with the attending to it. That, and the app. It’s called Ten Percent Happier. I didn’t want to forget to mention that… 🙂

Readers, do you keep track of milestones like 100 days, 200 days, etc. for your daily practices of movement or stillness? How do you think of it? I’d love to hear from you.
