They are simple, easy to follow, and can change your outlook and stress level in no time at all. Plus, you can do them just about anywhere!
Meditate in the morning if you can. This will actually help wake you up and get your focused on the day ahead of you. You can start your day off right if you just spend a few moments in the morning reflecting on the day ahead and what you want to do with it.
Make it part of a routine. Meditating during the day can be very effective in destressing you, but it is even better if you make it part of your daily routine, For example, if you meditate in the morning, do so every day. If you can’t do it then, choose a time (like after lunch before going back to work) to meditate for a few minutes. This will help you get into the habit of meditating a lot easier and will get your mind in a meditative state faster.
Plan it with other activities. If you know you prefer to meditate after a workout, think to yourself “workout, then meditate.” This will help you visualize your meditation session and will get you mentally prepared for what’s coming, which can help you find your meditation state of mind much faster. It also helps you associate the other activity (working out) with something positive, which ensures you will do it.
