1) There Isn’t Enough Time For You
My guess is you’re probably always taking care of someone else. Regardless of how hard you try, your obligations often cut into your “me time”. If you’re a super hero, you manage to work, eat, exercise and sleep. But, your mind still longs for quiet time. That’s where meditation comes in.
2) Your Guilty List
We all have that list of old movies we claim we’ve seen but haven’t actually gotten around to watching. Meditation is kind of like that. People talk about it and you may say you’ve tried it even though you haven’t. Or, you’ve tried it once and it didn’t work out so you didn’t try again. Get back on the bike. There is a reason people are talking about it.
3) Expensive Gym Memberships
We’re all for yoga, marathons, triathlons and all the other “ons” too. Those things can get expensive. You can meditate for free and what you do in those 5-10-15 mins a day can help you become more focused on all your other endeavors.
4) It Can’t Hurt
In college, we often try things even though we know the results can be extremely negative. For most of us, those risky days are long gone. Why not try something that can only do good now? At the very worst, your first meditation experience will be “meh”. Maybe it’ll be amazing. You’ll just have to try and see.
5) You Don’t Have a Good Reason
Not to meditate that is. You’re out of excuses. Think of this as the first time you made yourself go for a morning workout. The idea wasn’t appealing but what else did you have to do? I can’t think of a legitimate reason not to give it 5 minutes. If you can, please let me know! (Netflix addiction is not a good excuse)
So, try it out and if you feel like sharing your experience, please do so below! My first time was very relaxing but it took me about 4 times to get my posture right.
