A reader named Sei asked if I could walk her through one of my most important daily habits. Specifically, how I meditate.
My first thought: “There’s soooo much info on meditation out there already…do I really need to add to the pile?”There are 1440 minutes in a day. They’ll all go better if you take 10 of them to meditate. Click To Tweet
Second thought: “Yeah, I do. Because I haven’t fully covered my personal practice yet. And when you’re earnestly trying to learn something new, specific steps from someone you trust are vital.”
While I’ve mentioned the power of meditation many times, if you’ve been curious to know exactly how I do it, today’s episode breaks it down.
Resources From This Show:
Here are some links to research about the power of meditation:
- Research done by Harvard neuroscientist Sarah Lazar that shows meditation changes your brain.
- The impact that meditation has on our ability to be compassionate.
- An article in Time with a study showing meditation can lower our risk for heart disease and stroke.
And here’s the link to the Pandora “Calm Meditation” station I play most often.
I know some people resist meditation because they don’t see the value in it, they can’t get themselves to sit still, or anytime they’ve tried it — they never know if they’re ‘doing it right’ and get frustrated and quit.
Personally, I can relate to all of those challenges. That’s why I keep my practice super simple as you’re about to see.
Plus, I’ve created a free guided meditation for you (a first!) if you’d like to meditate along with me.
