Let's talk about meditation...
Meditation is free, it’s easy (with practice) and it is one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself.
Did you know that even a single minute can be used to meditate? And that single minute will add value to your life. Seriously.
Many people give up on meditation because they think that they cannot do it. Let’s be clear: YOU CAN DO IT!
The key here is to recognize what successful meditation really is.
You see, it is very normal for your early meditation to be … well, pretty loud and messy inside your head.
You will find that as soon as you quiet down, and start to focus on just your breathing? Yeah, that is when every single silly thought will come barging into your head. From left, right, up and down – thoughts will feel like they are bombarding you.
That is normal. It is something that you need to simply accept. Embrace it. That means you are on the right track!
Try something – imagine these thoughts are each individual bubbles… floating thought bubbles. Just see those thought bubbles, and watch them float away.
They will. They really will.
The very last thing you should do is fight the thoughts. To “argue” with them for being there. Accept them. Be grateful they stopped by. And watch them drift away, as you get back to your focus on your own breathing. On your own … living.
Start small. Dedicate one minute to meditating. The next day, try two minutes. Slowly, as you get comfortable and start feeling the real benefits, increase it more and more.
It works best to dedicate a regular time to your meditation. Maybe it is when you first wake up. Maybe it is when you first get home. Before bed? Maybe. Maybe a quiet spot at lunchtime… maybe even while taking a quiet walk in the park. Yes – you can meditate while walking in the park, or on the beach, etc.
You see, meditation is not hard. And the more you do it? The more satisfying it will be to you.
