Reading Time: 11 minutes
Do you struggle to find the time to meditate? We live in the Aquarian Age, which means that we have ultra-busy schedules. Between your work and social life, you may have very little time to relax and unwind. However, we cannot overstate the importance of self-care.
Meditation comes complete with a whole host of benefits. If you want to start reaping its rewards, you have to dedicate yourself to doing it regularly. Often enough, that is easier said than done. In this article, we will take a look at some of the ways you can get it right.
Find a time that works for your schedule
When you have a million things to do, finding the time to slip some meditation into your lifestyle can be tough. We’ve all been there: you put it so low down on your priority list that you never get to it. To make things easier for you, find out what time suits your routine.
While we recommend meditating in the ambrosial hours — i.e. 90 minutes before the sun rises — you can do it whenever you please. If you are naturally a night owl, for example, you may want to meditate directly before you go to bed. Be flexible with your schedule.
Take a break from social media
One of the habits that can steal your time is social media. If you’re prone to “doom scrolling” from time to time, this is your sign to take a break. Deleting the apps and steering clear of them in your browser can open up more time. You may be surprised at how well this works. Use your newfound free time to meditate and learn the art.
Set yourself a reminder to meditate
If meditation is not a part of your everyday schedule you may forget to do it. That’s normal. One way to combat this problem is to set a reminder on your phone. Create a notification that tells you to meditate at the same time each day. That way, you will never skip it.
Ask someone else to meditate with you
Do you prefer to meditate alone or with a partner? If you’re a social person, you may want to ask someone else to join you in this journey. When you meditate with someone else, you give yourself the chance to grow and expand together. Plus, as an added bonus, the other person will hold you to the schedule. Try this trick if you are finding it hard to do.
Incorporating meditation into your daily routine doesn’t have to be difficult. Within this guide, we have taken a look at some of the tricks you can use to help you along the way. However, the main point to take away is that you need to make meditation a priority. When you start to include it in your schedule as a given, you will notice it makes a huge difference. The sooner you make this simple change, the sooner you will reap the rewards.
