Meditation clears my mind, helps me feel grounded, connects me to the divine, and helps me be a happier and healthier person. So why haven't I been doing it?
Yesterday I meditated. I mean, I really sat down and did the work, for the first time in three years. It was like I was born again. I felt like a completely new person afterward.
I'm a mom of three boys and an entrepreneur. I'm super busy. And running a household and a business takes a lot out of me. Some days I don't even eat or shower when I need to. So, how the heck am I supposed to find the time (or motivation, or peace and quiet, or space) to meditate?
I know I need to, but most days, I just don't feel like meditating. But I know that when I take that time for myself, everything changes. I'm a better mom for it, a better wife, and a better version of myself. I'm less easily triggered, my stress is soothed away, and I get a fresh burst energy, and often a new perspective on my inner drama.
So how did I find those 15 minutes of bliss amid all the chaos to meditate yesterday? And how do I plan on sticking to my practice and not falling off track again?
Here are my top three tips for finding the time, space, and motivation to meditate even when you don't feel like it and sticking with your practice:
