This week’s tip was inspired by the last line of last week’s tip, “Find a regular time, regular space, and give it a shot!” The importance of finding a place and time to sit regularly cannot be overstated. As we meditate repeatedly in the same location, the mind begins to know that as a place for meditation. When you go to sit, the mind will eventually settle in more easily as it associates this spot with a calmness.
Also, find a time that works for you. Some people like to roll out of bed and meditate right away. Maybe you need breakfast first. Maybe the afternoon works better. Figure out (patiently) what works, and set aside the time to make it happen. Make it a priority.
