MEDITATION IS NOT A ONE SIZE FITS ALL
Mediation can be a powerful tool, however, we sometimes feel the pressure to adopt a certain style that seems to be working for others. However, the reality is that mindfulness might work for some, visualization for others or maybe mantra mediation is your jam.
It’s more important to find a practice that meets your needs. Give it a shot and be consistent. And start with small steps – maybe jumping into a 10-15 minute practice isn’t right for you right now. Start with a minute each day, get a 7 day streak happening and then build up your timing from there.
However, if you find a particular style isn’t gelling with you after a couple of weeks sticking at it, it might be time to ditch it and switch it up!
