1. It Takes Practice
We know how it feels when all your favorite YouTubers have a 10-minute meditation in their morning routine and all they say is how great it feels to meditate. But the truth is, meditation takes practice. It’s not as easy as some people make it seem.
Even for people that have been practicing meditation for a long time, keeping their minds calm and their attention from wandering may still be challenging.
So, if you have attempted to meditate a few times and have had no luck, don’t give up. Learning how to meditate takes practice, patience, and persistence.
To stay on top of your mindfulness routine it is a good idea to start a monthly meditation tracker where you can check off the days you immersed into your spiritual practice. There is a theory that it takes 21 days for old mental patterns to dissolve and a new habit and new neural pathways to form.
