Same time, same place

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you having trouble committing to your meditation practice? One of the easiest ways to make it a daily habit is to set up a schedule for yourself. Plan to sit in the same place at the same time each day and meditation will become a part of your daily life.

Where you sit doesn’t need to have a special blanket, statues of deities or mala beads (eventually you may add these items as they start to be a part of your practice). It just needs to be a place in your home that you designate as your special meditation spot.

When I lived in NYC and space was limited I cornered off a small section of my closet for meditation. At that time I didn’t have a meditation cushion or anything else, I just knew that area of the closet was my mindful space. In my current home I have chosen an area that isn’t used often and set up my meditation cushion so when I go to meditate the area already feels peaceful to me.

Live Light Practice:

Choose an area in your home where you will use it only for meditation. If you have a meditation cushion or a blanket you like to sit on for meditation set it down so when you go to meditate the space is ready.

Then set up a time each day that you will regularly mediate. For example: at 8am each day I will meditate for 10 minutes.

Let me know how it goes!

Shanti,
