Most of the time, I feel like I have to make a big production out of meditation. Like I have to be in just the right space, sitting in just the right position, focusing on just the right thing. And half the time, it feels like too much trouble. Like I don’t have the time. Or the focus. Or the patience.
Not that I think of meditation as hard. What I think about is me not being in the right frame of mind to do it right…so I just don’t do it at all. And what a shame that is because:
1) I can’t screw up meditation.
2) It’s when I’m the busiest, most frazzled, and impatient that I need the anxiety-reducing benefit of meditation the most.
So in the spirit of making anxiety relief as accessible as possible, my aim for meditation is a simpler approach.
