Life is tough. Every day, you feel pressures from your job, friends, family, and society. You worry about money, your relationships, impressing the boss at work, being accepted by your friends and family.
To make matters worse, you can't turn off your brain. It won't stop thinking, fretting, overanalyzing, questioning whether or not you're good enough—as if you must gain everybody's approval. What can you do? Well, you've heard of meditation I'm sure. You may have even dabbled in it.
And why wouldn't you? All the gurus, and even science these days, sing its praises. Of course, evidence of meditation's benefits won't help you form a practice of your own. So how can you get over the hump and start enjoying the calm and clarity meditation offers?
It all starts with a secret. Six of them, actually. Knowing these will help you finally realize why starting a meditation practice has been so difficult and help you ease into a relaxation routine of your own.
