Whenever you feel like you don’t want to meditate, just tell yourself it’s okay that you don’t feel like meditating today. Or you can also postpone it for a different time of day. For example, some mornings I don’t feel like meditating, so instead of not meditating at all that day, I’ll shift it to the evening instead. But, to be honest, as long as you are meditating most days of the week, you’ll still feel calm and centered.
I make myself do it anyways. Those are the days that are really important to do it because then when you have a day like that again, it will be easier to do it anyway
I begin by acknowledging feeling unmeanagability and uncenterdness. I try to realize my scattered focus and tell myself that ITV isn’t not with worry force and control that I will succeed in reaching my goals. Taking star tulip also encourages meditation if it is becoming a pattern of resistance. Meditating first thing in the morning even if only a few minutes before you reach for you’re phone or even get up is a good way to make it into a habit and showing yourself the commitment and value to the self taking time in silence can help me achieve.
