Developing habits of mindfulness

Updated: Oct 6, 2020

They say it takes 21 days to form a habit. I had always wanted to be disciplined enough to meditate on a daily basis and for me this also had a spiritual benefit, but I had never been able to get into a regular rhythm of doing this.


Lockdown gave me the perfect opportunity to trial developing this as habit. I found a number of things helped me:

  • finding a regular time slot, first thing in the morning worked best for me

  • identifying a quiet spot in the house

  • using a timer to get me into the practice of meditating for a set time and then gradually building up

  • setting an atmosphere, I found using an incense burner helped me to focus more on my senses and the present moment

With this approach I was able to develop a regular habit. What I have found since though is that any changes in daily routine can easily disrupt what you have established. So for example I found that when I also started fitting the gym back into my weekly routine as lockdown eased I slipped on the meditating. This has meant having to re-establish the routine by getting up a bit earlier so that I can do both.


This is something that I am going to persist with as the days when I meditate I find I am more centred, mindful, better able to focus on the day ahead and able to see things in perspective.
