Hit the ground sitting! Day 4 of our 100 Day Meditation Challenge
Building a habit of meditating daily often starts with a burst of enthusiasm, and then a few days in you realize that the habits of your normal life have taken over and you just forgot to sit.
So you’re probably going to need some reminders to help establish the awareness, I meditate every day. The most helpful thing is having a regular time to meditate. Then it’s just “time to meditate” and you do it.
That doesn’t work for everyone, though. So you might want to set up a reminder in your computer or smartphone calendar to prompt you to meditate every day, or place notes and reminders around the house or in your car or office.
Having a place set up to meditate helps, too, especially if it’s a place you’ll see when you first get up.
If you’re participating in our Google+ Wildmind community, then you’ll also get emails whenever someone posts there, which can act as a reminder to practice.
So it takes a little effort to establish this new habit. And you may find there are some days you just forget, but you can congratulate yourself for having identified a weakness in your reminder system. Just pick yourself back up and see what you can do to create better internal and external reminders of your intention to sit daily.
