Meditation is not easy! But don’t worry, we got you. 

These tips will help you get started the right way. 

Find the right kind of meditation for you. There are dozens of different methods and techniques. Pick up a book, look online, or talk with your friends to find a way that works best for you.

Consider meditation as an investment in your daily productivity. The most common excuse for not meditating is a lack of time, while the most common benefits are focus and productivity. If you invest 20-30 minutes a day in your practice the time spent will pay off in a big way, trust us. 

Dedicate a regular space to your practice. Especially if you live with family, roommates, or even nosy pets. Having a go-to spot will make meditating seem less intimidating and easier to adopt in the beginning. Also, like any other habit, establishing consistency is the best way to turn a new practice into a daily routine. 

Be nice to yourself. Starting a meditation practice is not easy. It can be awkward, frustrating, and cause anxiety. Don’t beat yourself up if you struggle at first. Keep going. Every day. Even if all you have right now is an interest in trying it, you are more than halfway there. 

You got this.
