French Press to Stillness
I am sometimes asked,
“How do you find time to meditate?” My answer, “I make time.” Literally... I put it in my google calendar, make an appointment with myself, and keep that appointment like I would any other appointment. DONE. And it feels really good to check it off my list. (I’m such a list person! 🙃) .
Meditation is not just for meditations sake. It’s an act of self care so I can show up FULLY in all areas of my life. (Or at least give it my best shot!) There is a quote that says, “If you can’t find time to meditate, you don’t have a life.” (Let me know if you know who said this. Thanks!) .
I didn’t believe it until I tried it for 5 days straight. GIRL! (ok... and BOYEEEEE) I started noticing more clarity, calm, and groundedness immediately! And that was about 5 years ago! I MAKE TIME EVERYDAY. Even if just for 5 minutes.
Pacific Yoga Fishtown and I talked about this when I was in Philly a couple of months back. I am naming it:
FRENCH PRESS to STILLNESS.
Check out my IG story to see how it goes. Essentially the idea is that most of us make coffee or tea in the morning. To help you get started with a mediation practice you look forward to, start by attaching it to something you already do and enjoy.
Let me know how it goes for you! Or! Share how you were able to make meditation a regular part of your day. 🥰
