As a meditator for 14 years, a mindfulness teacher, and a clinical research collaborator studying meditation and mindfulness, if there is one thing I know for sure about meditation, it’s that meditation meets you exactly where you are in your life. Period.
No matter what the situation is, no matter what is happening in your life, no matter whether you have meditated for 10 minutes or 10 years, meditation has the capacity to support you.
We can learn to use meditation in daily life to grow our capacity to be with what is happening, strengthen our body and mind connection, gain new perspective, and find the ability to move through situations with more grace and ease.
Here is a list of meditation practices that you can use daily to help navigate trickier moments, cultivate calmness and balance, and increase your overall mindfulness.
