Finding Your Seat
Step 1: PICK A SPOT
Why wait for January 1st to start a new habit? One of the things that makes starting a meditation practice so tricky for many of us is that it is incredibly easy to put it off, to tell yourself that you’ll start when you get that new job, when the kids go to college, when you retire and move to Sedona. Start right now. Right this second.
Pick a spot on the floor, the couch, a chair, an outdoor bench and commit to that place for the next five minutes. It’s helpful if it’s a place where you can be alone but if not, put some headphones in.
Sit in your seat of choice, close your eyes, and follow your breath. If you don’t like your spot, sit somewhere else tomorrow. Don’t make it so precious that it becomes another form of procrastination.
Come back tomorrow and do it again.
