Alison & Eric’s 3 Tips for Bringing Meditation into Your Life

Tip #1: Put it on your schedule! If you have something that you want to implement in your life you need to get it on the schedule!!

Tip #2: Find something that works for you! Find something that sounds fun. Find something that doesn’t sound awful. Find something that doesn’t make you think “This is too hard I need to put it off.” Set yourself up for success!! You can go into nature or lock yourself in your bathroom!

Tip # 3: Forgive yourself when you suck– ’cause it’s hard!
