It is very easy to get in the habit of “not having time” for the things that will benefit us most and actually create more focused effective time in our schedule!
Meditation is one of the most important habits you can create in your life. You can schedule just a simple ten to fifteen minutes a day for yourself in the am, pm, or mid afternoon recharge and refocus.
The best way to make meditation a part of your busy routine is to just start and then maybe do a 30 day challenge, join a meditation online accountability group, or make a commitment to yourself
When viewing the lives of some of the top entrepreneurs and business savvy individuals today, one of the common habits they all practice is meditation.If people like Oprah, Kobe, Russell Simmons, Seinfeld, Richard Branson, (and many more) can make time for in their daily lives, I am sure you can spare ten minutes.
Here are some ways the most influential people in the world find time to meditate:
“I give myself a healthy dose of quiet time at least once (and when I’m on point, twice) a day: 20 minutes in the morning, 20 in the evening. Knowing that stillness is the space where all creative expression, peace, light, and love come to be is a powerfully energizing, yet calming experience. Knowing for sure that even in the daily craziness that bombards us from every direction, there is — still — the constancy of stillness. Only from that space can you create your best work and your best life.”
“I normally do my mindfulness exercises in the morning. It’s the first thing I do when I get up. I find that to be the best way to start the day. It gets me in balance before the busyness and chaos of the day kicks off.”
“I am a very organized person. I get up at 6:15 a.m., the kids get up at 6:45 a.m., and so I get up and get it in. I’m addicted to the high function. To me it’s a work thing — if you meditate, you can get so much work done. I always say to people you know how about three nights a year you get a good night sleep? You can have it every day with meditation.”
“You can’t serve the world unless you take care of yourself first. I find time for meditation every day.”
