Establish a Routine
Meditating each morning is a simple way to set a positive tone for the rest of your day. Allot a short, achievable amount of time to your meditation practice — even five minutes can have a profound impact. Dr. Mehran Attari, a cardiologist and professor at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, recommends scheduling time each morning “to remind yourself that this present moment is the only time and opportunity that you get to make a difference. Carry that thought with you as you start the day.”
