This is the seventh post in the series of Daily Habits, which is about a listing of useful habits that should be a part of a productive person’s daily routine. To read, you can start here.
My topmost failure in the last year is forming the habit of meditation. Although I have read and observed how it can help in controlling the mind, developing focus, keeping the emotions checked and relieving the stress, I could not (actually, did not) simply allocate a fixed timeslot for meditation in my mornings. My usual routine is to shut down the mind when I go to sleep which I think is practically doing meditation. However, properly incorporating it into my habit structure is one of my resolutions for this year.
Zen Habits has written a wonderful article on meditation where he described a number of benefits and techniques to slowly adopt this habit. You can read it here.
