Why people hate meditating – Let’s take our first step and learn how to meditate with these 5 essentials.
1. It’s Okay to Have Thoughts
2. Don’t Try Too Hard
3. Let Go of Expectations
4. Be Kind to Yourself
5. Stick with It
Special thanks and shout out to Sarah McLean at the McLean Meditation Institute. A few years ago I went through Sarah’s very detailed meditation teacher training and I can tell you it changed my life. It was not just about how to meditate, it was also about what not to do. I know that had I not learned these five essentials my meditation journey would have stayed in the frustration stage and I would not have any hair left.
