“I have known about meditation for 30 years and have studied under various people. However when it came to integrating it into daily life on my own, I was never quite able to do it. I was always too rushed, too busy with work, or had too many chores to get done. Meditation always got prioritized to the bottom of the list. By the end of the day, I just didn’t get around to it. Then came Simple Habit.
Simple Habit made it easy for me to incorporate meditation into my life. The five minute sessions are so easy to fit in. I can even take a walk and make it a moving meditation! This was so different from the classes where it was recommended to meditate for 20 minutes to an hour at a time. I know that’s good to do, but it set the bar too high for me.

With Simple Habit, it doesn’t ask too much, just what I feel I have time for. This way meditation isn’t another “have to” in my day. Instead it has become little breaks that I really look forward to. I found that with the small increments, I have more time than I think. And the best part is that I am experiencing benefits already! When life is busy Simple Habit is a great way to cultivate a bit of serenity and a feeling of wellbeing.”

“I have incorporated Simple Habit as part of my morning ritual because it helps me set the tone for my day. I can control what kind of day it is going to be. Meditating has helped me filter through my thoughts and prioritize each one. My thoughts can easily throw me off course and lead to distractions. Meditating helps me stay focused and be present in the moment with what’s going on in the now.
Simple Habit has also helped me cope with anxiety. Learning the fundamentals of breathing, being mindful and aware of what’s going on in life makes all the difference. Meditation is good for my mind, spirit and soul. There’s a calmness about easing the mind and having control of those thoughts that bombard the brain every chance it can get to throw you off balance. Ever since starting Simple Habit I have made it a priority in my daily morning routine to get every day started with positive thoughts to succeed not just for the day, but everyday.”
