Meditation seems pretty easy until you actually sit down to start it , then you feel like you have all these thoughts in your head that won’t stop.
I’ve heard this over and over again.
Here is the truth. We as humans will always have thoughts, they don’t go away . In meditation your temporarily moving or pausing the thoughts long enough to give your brain some down time.
Our society wants instant gratification. With meditation you can slowly give you brain a break but it takes some practice.
Set yourself up for success
Find a quiet undisturbed place
Tell humans to leave you alone
Do some time of movement like 20mins to calm your nervous system
Make sure your body is comfortable like your not hungry or have to go to the bathroom
Turn notifications off of your phone/watch or better yet just put it in airplane mode
Earphones help to drown out noise at first
Sit or lie down , if you get cold grab a blanket
Focus on the breath for a few moments
There are lots of different ways to meditate
Don’t give up, just keep at it until you feel the shift.
