Tips for beginners
There are a few common excuses that might be preventing you from meditating, but in fact, these are just myths:
- I just can't stop thinking. Meditation isn't about not thinking. Your mind won't automatically shut off and become thought-free. Instead, meditation can help you become more aware of your thoughts, and better regulate them over time.
- I don't have the time to meditate. Meditating for just five to 10 minutes each day can help reduce stress. The most important thing is keeping up the habit of coming back every day so your brain can reap the benefits of meditation.
- Meditation is not something people like me do. Anyone can meditate. In fact, many business leaders meditate in order to keep their minds clear, improve productivity, and be a better leader for their companies.
