Five Tips on Meditating When You Are Busy.

Updated: May 9

In today's fast-paced world, we are constantly busy with work, family, and various commitments. It can feel impossible to find the time to meditate, and yet it is precisely during these busy times that we need it the most. Meditating can help us relax, focus and find inner calm amidst the chaos. Here are my top five tips on meditating when you are busy. Whether you are a busy mum, dad, working professional, or caregiver, these tips will help you find a way to incorporate meditation into your daily routine.

Schedule it in.

The first step to fitting meditation into your busy day is to make it a priority. If you don't schedule it in, it's easy to keep putting it off. So set aside a specific time each day for meditation, whether it's first thing in the morning or right before bed. Use an app or a timer to keep yourself on track and make it part of your daily routine.

Find a quiet space.

It's hard to meditate when you're surrounded by noise and distractions. If possible, find a quiet space where you can focus on your breathing and clear your mind. This could be a spare room, outside in your garden or at the beach, or even your car. Wherever it is, make it your go-to spot for meditation.

Use guided meditations.

If you're new to meditation, or you find it hard to focus on your own, try using guided meditations. There are countless apps and YouTube videos that offer guided meditations for various lengths of time and different focus areas. Pick one that resonates with you and let the guidance help you find your inner calm.

Make it part of your daily routine. 

Meditation can be a part of your daily routine in many different ways. For example, you can use mindfulness meditation while you're brushing your teeth, taking a shower, or even doing the dishes. Simply focus on your breathing and be present in the moment. Finding small moments throughout your daily routine can help you incorporate meditation into your life without sacrificing other commitments.

Don't beat yourself up if you miss a day. 

Remember, meditation is a practice not about perfection. If you miss a day or even a week, don't beat yourself up about it. Acknowledge you missed a day with compassion, then commit to keep practicing. Remember that the benefits of meditation come from the consistent practice, so keep trying, even on the days when it feels hard.

Meditation is a committed practice that helps you find inner calm and reduces stress. It provides you with an opportunity in your otherwise busy day to connect with the present moment, check in with yourself and slow things down.
