For many people with busy lives, meditation can seem impossible. Even sitting for 5-10 minutes can be daunting. Here are somesimple steps to help you get started:
- Find a quiet space
- Take a moment to check in with where you are physically, mentally, and emotionally
- Set a timer for just one minute. Sit quietly and start to simply focus on your breath coming in and out
- When other thoughts arise, bring your attention back to your breath
- Be gentle with yourself. It takes time to build a new habit. Start increasing the time little by little as you feel comfortable.
