Meditation and Mind-Body Training
Kevin and I get all kinds of questions about meditation and Mind-Body Training... so today I want to answer a question that comes up a lot:
"How Do I Get The Most From My Practice?"
Kevin has been practicing and teaching meditation for over 30 years. Here's the advice he gives to people who want to get started meditating (or get back on track):
1. Set up your environment for success!
Find a good place to meditate. Define your meditation environment in a quiet, secluded spot (as best you can).
Make sure you have a comfortable seat that is the right height. I suggest sitting on the front edge of a chair that puts your hips level with or slightly above your knees with your feet firmly on the floor.
2. Schedule it!
Schedule meditation in your day-timer or activity planner as you would any other important commitment. I suggest first thing in the morning or last thing at night as optimum times, but any consistent time will work.
3. Keep a journal!
This helps you track your progress and reminds you why you're doing it. Looking back over your journal will remind you of the work that you've done, track the positive shifts that you've experienced, and make your practice feel more substantial and worthwhile.
And above all, enjoy the journey!
