Do you have a daily routine? What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
If you prefer to snooze in the morning.. great! Use this as an opportunity to meditate before you jump out of bed. Besides starting the day with a clear mind, you’ll be surprised how meditation can improve your life:
It can help reduce stress which results in less anxiety
It increases happiness
It promotes emotional health and strengthens your immune system
You’ll be more centered and focused in everything you do
It will contribute to improved overall well-being
It can shorten the time it takes to fall asleep and increases sleep quality
It slows aging
When you start, create your own habits:
Sitting down in lotus pose, lying down, walking - discover what works for you
10 min, 20 min, even if it’s only 3 minutes - take the time that fits you
Early morning, before you go to sleep, after lunch - pick any time of the day
Sitting quietly, guided meditation, alone or in a group - try different options
Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect. Just start and find your own unique way.
