Have you tried to meditate over and over again and you did not seem to do it right? Or it did not work for you? Or it did not meet your expectations? Do you think meditation is overrated?
In the last few years, the habit of meditating has become the go-to strategy that can help with mostly anything you want. And although it is true, it does not mean it’s the only way.
If you think meditation is overrated, watch this video to find out what to do instead!
I started to meditate around 6 years ago. I pushed myself to learn how to do it and to do it daily. After one week I stopped. I just could not stop my thoughts. As a perfectionist, I could not deal with failing at it every single day.
A year later I started guided meditation. It seemed easier and I was better at it. But again, I could not do it constantly.
I knew there was a problem with me. All these amazing gurus were meditating daily and wore talking about its benefits and here I was, wishing to have what they have but not meditating. In my mind, there was a new limiting belief formed
“If I do not meditate like they do, I will never get as successful as they are”.
If any of these hit home for you or if you tried meditating and you did not succeed at it and it made you feel bad about yourself, you are not alone.
What can you do right now?
- Ask yourself: “what is one habit that I can do often enough, that is easy for me to do?”
It can be coloring, singing, going for a walk, going for a run, journaling, visualizing, tapping…

It’s better to start with something that is easy for you to do and do that often than to try to do something that is hard and that you won’t keep doing.
I do have a morning ritual and it differs from day to day, but I always seem to do what I love doing – which is journaling, writing down my dreams and reading. Some days I go for a walk too, other days I do some tapping, or I visualize my ideal day.
Instead of being super controlling and push myself to do 6 habits, including meditation, I do the ones that come easy to me and then, if I have time and if I feel inspired to do it – I do the others as well. The maximum time I spend each day is one hour and the minimum is 10-15 min.
Now, I’d love to know.
What habit would give you the benefits of meditation? What do you commit doing often or daily to create more space in your mind? Is there a special trick that you use and you would like to share it with me and my community?
