What’s the best way to build a consistent meditation practice?
We have three suggestions for you.
1. Start small. Each meditation in the Introductory Course is roughly 10 minutes in length. Profound insights can happen in those 10 minutes, so there’s really no need to sit longer—especially in the beginning of your practice.
2. Set a trigger. Many people who want to start exercising put out their gym clothes before going to bed. Experiment with setting a similar trigger for meditation, like putting out your chair or cushion before you go to bed. Or set a Meditation Reminder in your app settings on your phone.
3. Try to practice at the same time, every day. Most of us brush our teeth in the morning and once again in the evening as a natural part of our daily routine. To help make meditation a habit, we recommend you try to practice at a set time every day.
