Simply put, meditation is the act of bringing one’s thoughts to the present moment. It may appear to be an easy task, but we all know how difficult it can be. When most of us sit to meditate, our minds wander all over the place except in the present moment! And many times we desire to meditate but don’t because of a variety of factors such as a lack of time or just laziness.

Here are a few tips to help you meditate

1. Before you begin, make sure you have everything you need

Whether you wish to meditate in the morning after a full night’s sleep or in the evening after a busy workday, you can give yourself the gift of a deeper and more pleasurable meditation experience by taking a few minutes to prepare for your meditation.

2. Start early

First thing in the morning, try to meditate. That way, you can ensure that it is completed rather than being pushed to the bottom of the to-do list as the day progresses. Plus, morning meditation is a great way to start the day because it leaves you feeling refreshed, aware, and ready to have a thoughtful day.

3. Think outside the box when it comes to location

Think of a creative space where you can practice meditation. This can be a driving force that can make you practice mediation.

4. Participate in group meditations

Although meditation may appear to be a very personal practice, there is surprising power in numbers. The power of collective energy is undeniable, and there’s no doubt that meditating with a partner or in a group may enhance your experience.

Making meditation a group activity not only helps us break out from our personal mental patterns, but it also gives accountability that we wouldn’t get if we did it alone.
