Find your style
There are tons of ways to practice meditation from breathing meditation, visualization, and walking meditations. Meditation is not one size fits all, try various types and lengths of meditation to find what works best for you. There may be a handful that you like - integrate those into your routine.
Create a routine
Once you find what type of mediation works best for you - find a time during the day that you can comfortably meditate. Along with the time of day, you can also set up a space in your home or office that is designated for meditation. This could be a meditation pillow, a chair, or a separate room. Creating this space will allow your body and mind to be prepared for meditation when you’re in that space, making it easier to integrate into your routine.
Be gentle with yourself
Mindfulness is a journey - take your time to explore, find what works, and adapt your practice as your life changes. There may be a week or a month that you fall out of your routine - when you’re ready, return to it.
Enjoy the journey
