Truly, even if meditation is an ancient practice, modern science and medicine are starting to embrace and recognize its benefits both mentally and physically.
However, while it seems very easy to do, it’s not if you’re just beginning doing it. Fortunately, doing it consistently until it becomes a habit is doable.
So, tomorrow morning when you wake up, ignore your phone. Instead, bring yourself to silence and meditate. It doesn’t take long to do that. Simply dedicate between 10 to 20 minutes of sitting while watching your breath.
Moreover, you might want to include positive affirmations to your meditation, which makes it even more effective. The key to making it more effective is to relax while in silence and putting feelings on your affirmations.
If you’ve heard of mindfulness, it’s pretty much the same.
2. Stretch and Exercise
