3 Reasons Why I Meditate Daily

Although it seems like such a “yogi-like” trend, meditating is actually beneficial for the non-yogi as well and shouldn’t be treated as a trend at all. Hopefully, you’ll be willing to take it from me. Here are 3 reasons why I meditate daily:

Set the Tone for My Day

Meditating over an affirmation I would like to remember throughout my daily life really helps in cultivating my sense of inner peace. For me, it is so important to remind myself of my value and capabilities in this world. So I guess the answer is yes,  I tell myself I am special every morning for 15 minutes.

Get Focused

If you’re like me you most likely have a million and one ideas and tasks running through your mind at any given time. Tha being said, meditation plays such a crucial role in clearing my mind so that when I’m finished I can really hone in on what is important to me. at least for that day. If you haven’t yet, I definitely recommend reading Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World.

To Practice Turning OFF my Thoughts

I remember hearing somewhere that men are more likely to go, for longer periods of time, without thinking one single thing. Much different from a woman who is more likely to have a never-ending stream of thoughts flowing through her mind at any given moment. Whether that’s true or not, I do not know, but I will say I have found that the benefits of learning to turn off your endless stream off thoughts due to meditating have improved the way I go about my life every day. This is the absolute best and most useful thing, to me, about meditating. Its now a tool I pick up whenever I need it.

I know I m not the only one who preaches about the marvelous effects daily mediation can have on our lives but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to further encourage it. I hope these reasons why I choose to meditate daily will inspire you to do the same. We can all walk around like zen-filled monks and make the world a better place for all of us.

Sending my love xx

    I meditate most days and find it very useful. It’s interesting what you say about men and women being different. My husband has no problem focusing on one thing at a time and his mind doesn’t appear to jump about anywhere near as much as mine! So I think there is definitely something in that 🙂 I’ve heard good things about Deep Work, it’s gone on the reading list!

    Wonderful article !!!

  3. “Yes I tell myself I’m special for 15 minute each morning”. I love that and me too. Because #1, who else is going to tell you? And #2, you can choose to believe you’re special or you can choose to believe you’re shit. Which one is more enjoyable and productive? I’d rather think I’m special. <3 Love this.

    This is just on point. I have recently started to mediate too and the results are just amazing.

  5. Yes. This is something I’ve wanted and needed to integrate for some time now. From sun up ‘ti sun down it’s go-go-go and I *know* how horrible that is for me and for anyone so thanks for the reminder to slow down and set the tone for the day.

    I’ve really increased my meditation practice. I’m not quite on a daily schedule but so close. 🙂 I feel more focused and relaxed with meditation. I like the idea of doing in the morning to set the tone of the day.
