10 Tips for 'finding the time' to mediate
Remember, you can meditate anywhere and at anytime- the tips below should help you to find what works for you.
Find a quiet place
Try to sit outside if weather allows
Observe your thoughts (it’s ok if you think the whole time)
See if you can detach yourself from the thoughts (your thoughts needn’t define you)
See if you can focus on one thing
Breathing is the most popular one as you are already doing it and the mind can focus on it
Give yourself a break, try not to push the thoughts away or force stillness
Keep practicing each day, build the minutes up slowly, get into the habit
Allow yourself to get bored, it is a bit boring, but how do you grow and improve without a bit of work
