What’s getting in the way of your meditation practice?

So you’ve been wanting to commit to a meditation practice, but you find that when you try, things just keep getting in your way.

After years of meditating, I still find that some days, even some weeks, I just can’t seem to get in the right space to meditate.

This is me earlier this week…I sat down on the couch to do a 5-minute tea meditation before I headed to work for the day.

The minute I sat down, teacup in hand, my dogs bombarded me.  They all climbed on top of me and started licking and nudging me.  It was obvious that there was no way I was going to get in a meditation at this time.

So what did I do?

I pet the dogs. I scratched their bellies and gave them kisses.

I don’t know how long I did this, but soon enough all 3 were sound asleep.

As they slept, I reached for my now room temperature cup of tea and meditated for 5 minutes and then I headed off to work.

This is what meditation does.  It prepares you for real life. 

Years ago, before I began meditating regularly, situations like this, always left me frustrated and annoyed, maybe even angry.  

“I just want 5  minutes to myself! Is that too much to ask?”

Meditation has made me calmer during life’s ups and downs…when I keep to the practice.

After all these years, I still need to adjust how and when I meditate.  My schedule changes day to day, so does my ability to focus, my motivation, and my overall energy level.

Setting up a meditation habit is a process of fine-tuning and adjustments, day to day, week to week, month to month.

Here are some steps to help you set up a Meditation Habit to Ensure Success.
