Meditation is an intentional practice. Adding it to your daily routine can lower your stress and improve focus. Are you are interested in beginning a meditation practice but not sure where to start? Below are some simple steps to help you get started.
Sit comfortably for 5-10 minutes of quiet time in a quiet space. Set a timer if you need to.
Focus on your breath. When your mind begins to wander, return your attention back to your breath.
End with gratitude and kindness. Take a moment to thank yourself for making the time to practice. Self-care and self-compassion are so critical to your wellbeing.
Try to commit to meditating everyday. But please give yourself some grace if it doesn't happen. Although a daily practice is deeply beneficial, sometimes life happens and that is totally okay.
