How Do I Make Meditation a Habit?

Meditation is an essential part of life, and it can be a difficult habit to establish. But with a little effort, it is possible to meditate regularly. Commit to meditating on the days you feel like it and on the days you don’t. It is an excellent place to start, as it helps you establish that meditation is not something you should do when you want to.

Set a time to meditate daily, and make it a ritual that you look forward to each morning. Doing this will help you create a daily reminder that can help you build your meditation practice and become more consistent.

Sit comfortably, close your eyes, and take several deep breaths. Exhale slowly, releasing any tension in your body on the out-breath.

Focus on the breath; if you notice any thoughts or emotions arise, observe them without judgment, then let them go. Once you have gotten the hang of this, expand your meditative practice by using various breathing techniques or other repetitive movements.

Choose a comfortable position, and find a place free of distractions. It can be a room in your home that you often use for meditation or an outdoor space with a gentle, soothing atmosphere. Once you’ve found the correct position, try sitting in it each day for at least five minutes. Once you’re more comfortable, increase your practice to 10 or 20 minutes.
