How to Train My Mind for Meditation

Oftentimes, when we first try meditation, our mind is the biggest obstacle. It will tell us all the reasons why we should stop, it will try to distract us the whole time, and it will think about what we’re going to eat later or what we need to do. It feels threatened when we try to quiet it during our time in meditation.

So how do we use our mind to help us meditate? In this episode, Todd talks about how to do just that. From simple ways of approaching meditation to how to other techniques, you’ll learn how to control your mind properly. We can’t simply ignore our mind, because the thoughts will get louder and louder. We can’t force it not to think a certain thing, because it will only fixate on that thing. But there is a way to work with our mind.
