4 ways to find time to meditate
In today’s crazy world, we always find ourselves losing track of our time. We drink our coffee while driving, we order our lunch for takeout and we always putting in work no matter where we are, thanks to our mobile devices. What is happening with our clock? Is it faster now than it was 50 years ago? Not really, we are just pushed by society and corporations to believe that if we are not “multitasking”, we are not productive.
Even though we try to squeeze every possible activity into our schedule, there are many lapses of time where we find ourselves doing meaningless and unproductive things. Then, why is it so hard to find time to meditate?
Having the discipline of finding time to meditate every single day can be incredibly challenging but the benefits are countless. That said, here are 5 ways to find time to meditate.
Make it a priority
Life can be much easier if we address the relevant things with discipline and even more if we take the habit of prioritizing those things according to their importance. Since our mental health should be important to us, we must make it a priority to find time for activities that stimulate the relaxation and nourishment of our brain, such as meditation.
For some of the most successful entrepreneurs of our era, meditation is as important as their morning workout routine. Now, squeezing 15 minutes of your schedule should not be that hard.
After waking up
If you can, try to meditate first thing in the morning. The benefit of doing this to start your day is that it will help you to dissipate any feeling of tiredness and that will set you up to have a more productive and positive day.
Maybe getting up 15 or 20 minutes early is feasible for you?
Instead of using a whole hour (or two) for lunch, you can easily use the first 15 minutes of your lunch break for your meditation. You are going to have a place in mind where you can be at ease and away from interruptions. You can meditate in your car, a conference room and even in a restroom(solo room). To avoid distractions from background noise, it is best to listen to soothing music using headphones.
If you are like me and morning meditation isn’t your thing, why don’t you try it during the evening and just before bedtime. A lot of people find it more beneficial to meditating before bed, as it puts them in a calm, relaxed state. Which is perfect when you are stressed or have trouble falling asleep.
