1. Create a daily routine
A daily meditation routine can be a great way to calm your mind and focus on the task at hand. It is beneficial for people who have difficulty sticking to their daily schedule without getting distracted.
It's essential to take a break from the hustle and bustle of life and put your full attention into something that matters - meditation. Meditation can help create a sense of peace in both your personal and professional life.
Create a routine that will make you feel more relaxed and comfortable in your busy daily life. Let meditation be a part of that routine. For example, avoid using your phone after waking up to check your emails, social networks, and the like. After you wake up and do your morning hygiene, do some physical activity. Then, try to journal what you are grateful for today. Say a few affirmations aloud, and finally meditate for at least 15 minutes.
Here are some steps that you can take to start up your daily meditation routine:
1) Find a quiet spot in your home where you won't be disturbed.
2) Sit comfortably for 15 minutes with your back straight and feet on the floor.
3) Close your eyes, adopt a comfortable posture, and take deep breaths through your nose. Breathe out through your mouth. Repeat the process 4-6 times until you feel calm and at ease.
2. Find a comfortable space in your home to practice
If you are new to meditation, there are many different techniques and practices to choose from.

Even sitting cross-legged on the living room floor is enough space to practice meditation. It is vital that you give it a specific purpose and that you feel comfortable and relaxed there.
