I'm new to meditating. Where should I start?

Welcome! We're excited to have you join us. A great way to familiarize yourself with meditation is to start with Simple Habit Starter, our signature 7-day introductory course that introduces basic techniques of focus on the breath, the body and your senses.

Useful tips:

  1. Start with 5 minutes. It’s a common misconception that to meditate, you need to sit for long periods of time in the morning, but that’s not true. You can meditate anytime and anywhere, even while commuting, while eating, or before giving a presentation.
  2. Meditate on the go. Learn to associate 5 minute meditations with different situations or stressful moments throughout your day (e.g. before a phone call). Take a moment to pause, breathe, and clear your mind before jumping into whatever you’re doing.
  3. Aim for consistency. Putting 5 minutes of mindfulness every day into your calendar or setting a daily reminder for yourself really works — and you can do both through the Simple Habit app and it will remind you on daily basis.
