“Nick, I really feel that daily meditation would benefit me, but I’m just so busy, it’s impossible for me to fit it into the day.”
This is, hands down, the most common reason I hear people give for why they don’t meditate.
Believe me, I get it. I’ve got 3 young kids, a business, and I do a lot of volunteer work. I know where you’re coming from!
But if you get a little creative, you’ll find that it’s actually quite easy to fit a lot of mindfulness into an impossibly busy day. The trick is to divide your mindfulness practice into two categories: sitting practice and non-sitting practice.
