Tips on Getting Started with Meditation

Starting a practice can be difficult. Meditation isn’t always fun or easy, and you may find yourself struggling in moments. Here are a few tips to help you learn how to do meditation at home and build a practice.

  • Meditate Every Day – Set the intention to sit every day, even if it’s just for a few minutes. Continuity of practice can be extremely helpful in learning how to meditate and help to build insight.
  • Create a Routine – To build the habit, try sitting at the same time every day, in the same location, and with the same practices. Train your mind to associate this place and time with a calm and joyful mind!
  • Listen to Guidance – Whether you listen to our meditations or other guided meditations, we want you to give it a shot. Guided meditations offer a way to learn to meditate and familiarize yourself with the techniques.
  • Find a Community – See if you can find a friend to practice with, a local meditation community, or a teacher. Talking about meditation and having somebody to talk to about your practice can lead to clarity and growth.
  • Be Patient With Yourself – Meditation is a practice, not a quick fix. Be patient with yourself. Keep at it, and don’t overwhelm yourself by constantly measuring your progress.
