Don’t Have Time to Meditate?

Many people come to me and tell me they don’t have time to meditate. I always tell them to make time to meditate, even if it is only 9 minutes a day. This gives them a new start in life in a short period of time when they follow my advice.

I also tell them that consistency of practice is more important than the quality of each meditation session. This is because consistency builds up neural pathways in the brain that send signal that they enjoy the period of silence.

Russell Simmons, the master entrepreneur, who practices Transcendental Meditation writes:

“‘But Russell, I just don’t have time to meditate.’

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard this. I’m always getting approached by people looking for advice on how to ‘get ahead,’ but when I simply say, ‘Start meditating,’ they act like I just tried to duck the question! ‘Come on, Russell, I don’t have time for all of that,’ they’ll say in protest. ‘Give me something real!’

But I couldn’t be more real with someone looking to improve their life than to tell them to meditate. So when they claim they don’t have time, I always come back to them with that old saying about meditation: If you don’t have twenty minutes to delve into yourself through meditation, then that means you really need two hours.

So if you’re one of those people who claim that they would start meditating if they just had the time, my message to you is: Make the time.

That’s because while your mind is the part of your body you use the most, it’s also probably the part you spend the least amount of time taking care of.”
