Now that 2018 is really here and we’re all settled into it, let’s reconsider our meditation goals.
There are so many ways to meditate, we can be forgiven for feeling overwhelmed. Should we light a candle or practice breathing or chanting? Should we be mindful? More aware? Less aware? Do we need a mirror? Incense? A place to be at one with ourselves?
I meditate on the train every morning. Because I have my meditations downloaded onto my phone, I like to choose a different one each day, plug in my headphones and just listen. It saves me having to listen to the beats escaping other people’s devices around me, lol!
Living in my own little world for 20 or 30 minutes while travelling lets me arrive at the office in a more relaxed and less stressed frame of mind. And that can only be a good thing!
It also means that I’ve kept a commitment to myself, which is to meditate every day. And that’s a good thing too.
I’m not a fan of committing to things that I can’t actually do. I don’t like setting myself up to fail. So if I have to sit on the train, I can make good use of that time and keep my commitment at the same time: that’s what I call a win-win!
What about you? When do you meditate? Where can you carve out time just to sit quietly and listen to some words or music? Or just to focus on being mindful. Leave a comment below about what time works best for you. It might help others….
