Making Time To Meditate For Beginners - How To Begin

A significant difficulty for many people just beginning their meditation journey is finding the time to learn how to meditate. If I had a penny for every time I heard someone say, "I don't have time to meditate," I'd be rich!

Anyway, let's get back to meditation. Are you one of those people who has a hectic schedule and thinks to yourself, "I don't have time"? And if you answered "yes," I'd like to let you in on a little secret: the reason why you don't have time is that you constantly say "I don't have time" and believe that "I don't have time."

This sentence appears to make great sense to some people. This statement may even be offensive to certain people. There is no need to be upset; instead, allow me to explain.

Our lives are what we make them be, and they are the result of our efforts. It is entirely up to you whether or not you wish to adhere to this concept. Life becomes the tangible expression of your inner thoughts and internal debate when you allow it to be so.

Possibly your mother and father taught you that staying busy at all times is the best way to avoid getting into trouble. Perhaps when you were younger, you were hustled from soccer to ballet to gymnastics to baseball to piano classes, and on and on. You may remember this feeling.

This is neither a negative nor a positive development. It has simply become a part of your identity. Everything about you is continuously in motion... "There's no time to stop. You've got to keep active. You've got to get it all done!

Maintaining a franticly busy schedule requires significant time, effort, and energy. It's no surprise that most of the population is exhausted all of the time and falling unwell.

The good news is that you have the ability to rebuild your life at any time. Begin by stating the following: "I have a lot of free time. There is enough time for me to complete everything I want to do today ."

Although things may appear to change at first, the more regularly you shift your inner dialogue to believe that there is plenty of time, the more likely your physical world will change, as guaranteed. You may even keep your current schedule, but you will FEEL as if you have extra time... does that make any sense?

Make a promise to yourself that you DESERVE to have a few minutes of peaceful time to recharge your batteries and refresh your mind now and then. Begin by setting aside 5 minutes each day to practice a little mini-meditation.

Take a deep breath of fresh, clean air and allow the oxygen to flood your lungs. Close your eyes for a while and take several deep breaths. Take a deep breath and exhale. Repeat.

They will reciprocate their gratitude if you care for your body and mind.
