304: How to NOT suck at meditation

This episode was inspired by the many questions we’ve been receiving about meditation from our 1 on 1 conversations with  MerryBody members. We keep hearing things like “I want to be good at meditating, but my mind just goes on and on” or “I just can’t meditate, I want to, but it feels impossible”. Can you relate? 

Stuff we talked about…

  • The spinning thoughts are actually normal. This doesn’t mean you suck at meditating or that you can’t meditate. This is just your mind doing what it’s designed to do, think!
  • There are distractions everywhere so it takes more effort to slow the mind down.
  • Create an anchor for your practice. 
  • Meditation is a tool to ease the suffering of life.
  • Meditation and Yoga give your body a chance to rest and recover.   
  • What’s the best way to sit when you meditate?

We hope that this has inspired you to either continue your meditation practice or perhaps begin a meditation practice. Take a listen to 296: Embody Guided Meditation (seriously go to bliss town in 9 minutes), one of our guided meditations. It’s all about focusing on your body and a technique to quiet down the mind.

How do you go with your meditation? Do you struggle? Do you have more questions? If you have any A-HA moments, questions, comments or feedback about this episode, send us an email at [email protected] or [email protected] or message us on our Facebook and Instagram accounts @themerrymakersisters.
