Many people have expressed to me their desire to meditate, but have said they either:
a. feel they’re “bad at it” because they find their thoughts wandering,
b. find it boring
c. feel that they can’t fit a meditation practice into their lives, or
d. just can’t motivate themselves to do it every day.
(I can completely relate to all of these thoughts & feelings, by the way!)
Some amazing studies have come out recently about meditation and how it increases gray matter in the brain. Even though I don’t do it every single day (but feel better when I do make it a consistent practice), meditation has helped me in so many ways over the years that I love to encourage people to try it.
If you’ve ever had a challenging time starting or keeping up with a meditation practice, check out this post where I talk about my favorite book on the subject:
The exercises in the book are designed to help you physically/emotionally/spiritually + psychologically, and can be done in as little as 3 minutes a day. If someone asked me to name one book that has changed my life, this would be it. Want to try some of the exercises right away? (They’ll help you reduce stress, feel more calm, yet more energized at the same time.) Check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFCRNtFem14
I hope it helps. Please feel free to leave a comment or get in touch if you have any questions. I’d love to hear what you think if you check out the book or video, or if you have a meditation practice that you can recommend!
