Willpower doesn’t grow on trees.
While it might sound obvious, we might sometimes need reminding that meditation only works when we commit to actively engaging in it.
In fact, in order to truly experience all the numerous benefits it has to offer, we must commit to meditating on a very regular basis – day after day, with gentle and considered discipline.
In this way, perhaps we can compare training the mind to training the body. We can spend hundreds of pounds on buying the very best gym membership and snazziest fat-burning trainers, but (unfortunately!) nothing very much is going to happen unless we actually make it through the front door. We need to actively engage in the physical exercise on a regular basis in order to experience the benefits. And the mind is no different.
All this said, we’re well aware that maintaining a daily meditation practice can often be easier said than done. With this in mind, we’ve compiled some tops tips to help you set yourself up for a regular and consistent meditation practice. Hopefully this will help dispel the excuses before they come knocking!
