It means that one isn't unsettled, whether it happens to be an easy day or a difficult day.

I guess in some ways. Equanimity is just a by-product of wisdom. Once you see into the nature of things a sense of equanimity should develop towards pleasant/unpleasant.

All that is said is right i want to add in my words :

i think that even the equanimity changes - i had some really good times with mindfulness growing and growing and being very equanimous for lets say a month and then i would think i would go back to point zero (when i started meditating) in those aspects -

so i would say this : know that as long as your practicing towards destroying the defilements and meditating then you should advance BUT its also good to always think "how can i imporove my pratice for faster development" maybe by adding meditation time or maybe by taking another precept

and the most important thing is not to stop - cause some times when you improve your mindfulness you might "see" better your situation and notice how unmindful you are -

i know i had a time when i was very angry and yelled alot and my teacher told me its part of my advancement and that its an indication that i am improving - and i dont think he said that just so i would feel good

if last week you meditated 10 minutes in a day and this week you meditate 5 a day that dosnt mean you are going back - it just means you will advance slower but you will still advance

when i dont eat after lunch and i am very mindful i almost! dont have an urge to eat food - whenever my practice is good then its all hindrances gets weaker

Now for example it goes bad and im eating like crazy with no control lol
