“Let go of what has passed. Let go of what may come. Let go of what is happening now. Don’t try to figure anything out. Don’t try to make anything happen. Relax, right now, and rest.”

Cultivate a little inner peace every day

In meditation (as in life!) attitude is everything. Rather than adding another ‘should’ to your list, choose to practice meditation because you care about connecting with your innate capacity for love, clarity and inner peace.

So when you come to class or practice alone at home, approach it with unconditional kindness and try to let go of the need to ‘do it right’. Simply give permission for the meditation experience to be whatever it is – and thank yourself for showing up!

Where to start with meditation

Where to start with meditation

Meditation is something anyone can do, anytime, anywhere – even someplace loud. It’s easy to learn and involves some pretty basic techniques. Like anything new, the more we meditate, the more comfortable we’ll get spending time with our mind.

The best way to set yourself up for regular meditation practice is to know your intention. Why do we want to meditate? Being clear about what we want to get out of our practice – whether it’s to feel happier, calmer, more focused or less stressed – will really help set the right attitude going into it. If you start to feel bored or restless during practice, simply remember your intention. It can be the motivation you need to keep your commitment.

To make meditation a habit, it can also help to remember there’s no pressure to get it right. As long as you show up to take time for yourself, you’re doing great! Even if you’ve missed a few sessions and start to doubt yourself, remember those are just thoughts. You can notice them, let them go and get back to being kind to your mind.
