Meditation & Morning Routines
Meditation is something I have been practising on and off for more than 7 years. My consistency with meditation wavers quite a lot. I struggle to maintain the practice because spending 20 minutes first thing in the morning is daunting because I have been told by “self-help” gurus (read influencers) that on top of meditation, I should be journaling, exercising, practising gratitude etc. If I follow all of these recommended “first things in the morning” practices, I will just end up spending hours and hours doing these practices wondering if they will really bring me any benefit?
Moving forward, I'm going to keep my morning ritual pretty simple:
- Wake-up & Ablution
- Make coffee
- Prayer & read 5 verses of the Holy Quran.
- Journal for 7 minutes in Obsidian.
- Shower & get ready for work.
