no more boring lectures

The biggest difference meditation has made in my academic life would be my focus. Even when I feel that class is less than thrilling on a particular day, I can listen attentively and absorb the lecture. I no longer feel bored during class when I normally would. I also do not feel that I am wasting my time. I have been able to accept that I need to be in class, that watching the clock won’t make it go by faster, and that while I’m there, I might as well devote my attention to the material even if I feel I already know it. The result? Even when I felt I was already comfortable with what we were covering in class, something always came up in the lecture that I didn’t know, or it was explained in more depth and I understood it better. Things I would have missed if I had simply let myself zone out like I used to.
