You get hung up on the word 'meditation' because you think it requires clearing your mind, om'ing or feeling like a gently running stream.
Nerrrrrp, not the best approach.
THE PURPOSE OF MEDITATION IS TO HELP US WAKE UP.
And I really want you to experience the wild benefits you're always hearing about before thinking "ugh I just can't sit still, it stresses me out!"
Honestly, I tried so many times and just couldn't keep it going.
I finally asked...how could I make this more approachable, less intimidating?
See, our brains are WIRED to daydream, to wander, to BE BORED. The first time we sit without distraction all of a sudden our brain goes haywire like a kid let loose in a ball pit fueled by gummy bears (littttt).
And we're like "holy sheesh, what's wrong with me where are all these thoughts coming from MAKE THEM STOP!!!"
But we never allocate the time to give our minds that boredom, soooo there’s just a lot to sift through the first few times.
I've created a lil tactic I call the 5:5, and I want to share it with you today in hopes you give sitting another try.
The first time you did a pushup or a squat it was probably shaky. Picture your meditation muscles this way. The more you practice, the more comfortable it will become. Try it out and let me know how it goes!
Let's return to health, together.
