Routine is so important in sustaining a happy mind and body. Adapting meditation into your daily routine can allow you to think more clearly, feel more energised and attract more joy to your life.
Meditation doesn’t have to be practised the traditional way you may be imagining. Start by mindfully breathing. You can do this by taking 4 breaths in, holding for 4 seconds then breathing out for 4 and holding at the bottom for 4. Repeat this 5 times and notice the difference in your mindset.
It may seem difficult to focus on deeply relaxing without falling asleep to begin with. Start slowly, begin by setting aside 5 minutes a day for meditation and slowly increase one day at a time.
