Today’s Solutions: November 28, 2022

What if you could take a magic pill each morning that would reduce your stress, lessen your anxiety, increase your ability to focus, and improve your memory? What if that pill had no side effects, you wouldn’t have to go anywhere to get it, and it is 100 percent free? Would you take it?

Of course, you would! And you can. The pill, of course, isn’t a pill at all, but rather, meditation. These days meditation has become somewhat of a buzzword, so much so that you’ve probably considered it at one point or another. If you’re still on the fence about it, though, these five reasons for starting the day with morning meditation might convince you.

How you start your day is how you live your day

You may be starting your day with an alarm, kids, or pets waking you up, and immediately thrust yourself into the news, email, and the Internet. By starting the day frazzled and distracted, you can pretty much expect the day to follow suit. With meditation, you set the tone for a calm, mindful, and productive day.

You are less likely to make excuses in the morning

Even with the best intentions, it’s all too easy for your to-do list to take over your day, and before you know it you are too busy or too tired to sit and meditate. By meditating in the morning, you are more likely to actually follow through instead of putting it off.

You will be more productive at work

By restructuring your morning to include mindfulness practices, you are also more likely to have more energy and will be more proactive as a result.

You will feel more in control of your life

By having a meditation morning routine, you show yourself and the universe that you intend to be in charge of your day, instead of being pulled around by external demands on your time. 

Ancient wisdom suggests meditation as a morning ritual

Many spiritual traditions suggest waking up before the sun to do yoga and meditate. The specific reasons vary, but ultimately it all comes down to creating a sacred connection to your higher self when the world and your mind are at their quietest.
