When people say to me, “I don’t have time to meditate,” I have the same response every time.
I say, “Do you have time to feel like crap?”
Watch this video or keep reading for guidance on how to find time to meditate…
You have time to meditate
Do we have time to feel like crap? No, we don’t. We don’t have time to feel low-level energy, to feel stuck, to feel disconnected from the Universe.
We need to feel vibrant and vital, and we need to have a sense of intuition rising up. In order to move through obstacles, we need to feel at peace. Five minutes a day spent in meditation can give you that presence of stillness that can carry you for the rest of the day.
The next time you ask yourself, “Do I have time to meditate?” or the next time you hear your ego say, “I don’t have time to meditate,” remind yourself that one to five minutes a day can change your life. Give yourself that gift.
Whether you’re listening to a guided meditation or you’re just listening to your own breath, that practice will lead you into a more centered state and set you up to win.
The next time you say, “I don’t have time to meditate,” hear my voice in the back of your mind saying, “Do you have time to feel like crap?”
The 1-minute breath
No matter how busy you are, you can follow a simple meditation from my book Miracles Now. It takes just one minute. You have time to meditate!
One minute of day spent in stillness can change your life. Commit to one minute a day and use this practice to silence your mind and calm your energy.
For one minute, follow this breathing technique:
Breathe in for 5 seconds
Hold your breath for 5 seconds
Release for 5 seconds
Hold for 5 seconds
Practice this breath pattern for one minute a day, ending with an exhale.
See? You do have time to meditate.
