Why You Might Fear Meditation and How to Move Past It

Hey there! Have you ever found yourself procrastinating meditation or learning about how to reduce stress despite your best intentions? Well, this article is for you and I’ll share some potential reasons behind this behavior!

Why do we procrastinate meditating?

First of all, let’s talk about why we tend to procrastinate meditating in the first place. It’s simple: we like to stay in our comfort zone and resist change. Even if we want to change for the better, our brains are wired to resist it. But meditation can help you break out of this cycle of procrastination and start making positive changes in your life.

One of the reasons people resist meditation is that they don’t want to change their identity. Maybe you’ve identified yourself as a non-meditator or as someone who’s not successful in meditation. But the truth is, meditation can actually help you become more productive and successful than ever before.

Meditation creates what I like to call “space-time.” It helps you see time differently and gives you more space in your mind to think clearly and be productive. Even just one session of meditation can make a big difference in your ability to focus and get things done.

The “I’m too busy” mindset and make time for meditation?

Now, you might be thinking, “But I’m too busy to meditate!” I hear you, and I understand that life can get hectic sometimes. But the reality is that our minds don’t function efficiently when we’re stressed out. Stress kills our productivity and makes it harder for us to enjoy our work. So if you want to be more productive and less stressed, meditation is the answer.

Personal experience and benefits of meditation

Let me share a personal experience that highlights the effectiveness of meditation. I have a friend, let’s call him Ken, who was always busy with work and dealing with high-ranking executives in a very demanding job position. Despite my attempts to teach him simple breathwork and meditation techniques to reduce his stress, he would always cancel our appointments and say he was too tired. On the other hand, I had another friend, let’ call him Ben. Ben was experiencing a lot of stress and boredom in his daily routine. When I told him about the benefits of meditation, he immediately started the program and practiced it consistently for two weeks. The transformation was remarkable. His mood improved, and he looked much calmer and happier.

This experience taught me that meditation gives us the opportunity to look at our lives from a new angle, and thus can help us make better decisions. So, don’t be like Ken, who was too busy to take care of his mental health. Instead, be like my other friend, who took action and benefited from the practice of meditation.

What is the goal of meditation?

But here’s the thing: the goal of meditation is not to be productive. Although I don’t like to attach any goal to meditation, I like to say say that meditation creates space and time in your mind so that you can live your life to the fullest. Meditation helps you detach from your thoughts and stop overthinking, which can lead to depression and anxiety.

My personal journey with meditation

I used to be an overthinker myself, always feeling like I had to be doing something even on my weekends. But now that I’ve started meditating, I’m able to relax and enjoy my downtime without feeling guilty. I’m friendlier with my mind, body, and spirit, and I’m able to move forward in a positive way.
