Ask Barb

Q: Dear Barb,
How do I make The Practice a priority?
– Jane

A: Dear Jane,
This is THE question! I say, pick one part of The Practice and do it.

For example, start with the first tool: Waking Up: Meditation.
Make the commitment that you will start your day with a 5-minute meditation— a “sitting with yourself.” To make time for this, wake up five minutes earlier than you usually do.

Starting the day with this 5-minute meditation sets the tone for your whole day. You are connecting with yourself and living life grounded from within. So instead of being at the mercy of the outside world, you are connected and ready to deal with the things the day sends your way.

Only do this 5-minute meditation to begin, and after a time when you feel that this has become part of your routine, then move on to Living Present, the second part of The Practice.

Soon you will start to see the benefits of this morning meditation in your life, and you will not want to miss it for anything.

Blessings and love,
