I have practiced a daily meditation now for about two or three weeks and it is one of the best things I have ever done. I feel a deeper sense of who I am. I have been sleeping better, having better dreams, and generally more positive interactions with the people in my life.
Here are three quick tips to get started:
1- If you are a total newbie there are some great free apps that will get you started! I recommend Stop, Breathe, and Think. It comes with some great tracks and it asks how you feel mentally and physically. Which it helps to figure out which meditation to have you back on track.
2- My second tip is to pick a time of day I strongly recommend early in the morning! This can forever shift what your days look like take it from me I hated getting up in the morning dreaded hearing my alarm before going to school growing up. Now I will get up and start my day with a short meditation and it gets me on my way to my day! If you can’t do that take 5 minutes in your car before entering your place of work!
3- If you fall off get back on! Consistency will make it easier and easier it will also open up new doors. Be prepared for every day to be different.
Hope these few tips are helpful!
