Let us guess…the first time you tried meditating, you wanted to give up the moment you closed your eyes. Disconnecting and sitting in the present is easier said than done, but don’t let the challenge of meditation prevent you from continuing to practice it! Meditation has incredible benefits including calming your mind and helping you to focus on “the now” rather than fixating on things outside of your control. And if you’re looking to make this practice part of your daily routine, all you have to do is start exactly where you are.
Whenever you run roadblocks it’s always a good idea to get back to basics. When you stop putting so much pressure on something, it can make the experience so much more enjoyable, and that definitely applies when it comes to meditation and other spiritual practices. These 4 tips made such a difference in my ability to get grounded:
Cleanse your space before your practice. We love Palo Santo for this!
Use a meditation app to guide your practice! You don’t have to do it alone. Need some recs? Here are ones we love.
Visualize your zen place, wherever that may be.
And remember, the more you practice, the easier it becomes. It’s all part of the journey!
