Have you been trying to get back to your practice and need a little motivation? Maybe you are looking to begin a practice for the first time and aren’t sure where to begin.
In February, we will be practicing together. The goal is to sit at least once a day, every day for the next 28 days.

Tomorrow we begin 28 days of meditation!
What does 28 days of meditation look like?
Have you been wanting to start a practice? Maybe you have been wanting to get back to it. For the next 28 days we will meditate at least once a day. It can be for one minute, it can be for 10 minutes it can be for 30. You can choose to meditate in the morning when you first get up, in the middle of the day, or at night before bed. Choose a time that works for you.
Remember there are no fails. If you only get a chance to meditate for 2 minutes and that’s all the time you have for the day, that is 2 minutes you set aside for mindfulness.
Choose a place that is quiet. If you live with other people or family, let them know what you are doing.
You don’t need incense. You don’t need candles. You may want to find a pillow or cushion to sit on. A chair would work nicely as well—something that will help support your back. Make sure you are comfortable, warm (not too warm).
You may want to download an app to help keep track of your meditations and something that would ring a bell when you are done. You can also just use the timer on your phone. Some people recommend just setting it to stopwatch and meditate for however long you are comfortable and then just noting the time afterward.
We look forward to hearing how things are going! Please feel free to post in the group if you have questions or want to share how it’s going!
