Anyone can meditate. What's holding you back?

In my opinion meditation should be taught to children in school. Just as we learned to add up numbers and the geography of the world, imagine what life would’ve been like if we had learned such a powerful practice as meditation early on? 

Anyone can mediate. You don’t have to be a yogi or a monk. You don’t even have to be in the wellness field. It is quite easy and simple when you learn what meditation really is, how to do it, what to expect, and the key tips and techniques to support you in building a successful practice.

As someone who values personal development both for myself and for my clients and students, it is the single thing I teach about the most because it is an extremely transformative tool for self healing and enhancing our lives. 

Ever since I started meditating I’m a completely changed person for the better. And when I don’t meditate consistently, I can feel it. 

As a meditation instructor it brings me great joy that people depart my sessions and classes completely different–uplifted. I wish to empower people to meditate on their own and that’s part of what my coaching programs do. I have seen meditation radically change people and their lives within 4 weeks time. 

The problem is most people give up before they even give it a fair chance. Some people try it and think they are terrible at it or that they can’t stop their thoughts so then meditation must not be for them. What are some of the reasons you don’t meditate consistently?

I’m doing some research so I’d love to hear from you in the comments section below about:

  • What have been some of your challenges, obstacles or resistance to beginning, continuing or deepening your meditation practice?

  • What information could help you feel confident and inspired to sit and meditate on your own everyday? 

  • If you could learn anything about meditation, what would it be?

This blogpost is to remind you to not give up YET! There are many resources out there and I have a few launching soon! Meditation is good for EVERYONE! And if you’ve been called to do meditate lately then go on and just do it. I’ll leave you with this tip–

Just the act of you setting an alarm for 10 or 20 minutes and sitting still with yourself, just being, and focusing on your breath, has benefits for your brain and well being whether or not you think you are doing it right!
