Start a Meditation Practice
Are you looking to start a meditation practice?
If you’ve been stressed on your fertility journey, meditating can be a great tool to add into your self-care routine to help you feel more grounded.
Here are 3 steps to start a meditation practice with ease.
Step 1: Start Small
- start by meditating for less than a minute
- as you build your concentration, you can practice for longer
Step 2: Build Good Habits
meditate in the same spot every day
meditate at the same time every day
set your goal to practice every day, or every week day, (not 3x/week)
Step 3: Find a Guide You Love
listen to guided meditation until you get comfotable doing it on your own
find a guide whose voice makes you feel soothed
- try several different types of meditation to find the one that feels like the best fit for you
discover whether you like to have background music, sounds, or not
A few things to keep in mind
Meditation has no goal: You’re not “trying” to feel calmer by meditating. Keep an open mind and be curious of the outcome.
Meditation brings you to the truth: If you’ve been hiding from your feelings, starting a meditation practice can make you come to terms with how you’re actually feeling.
