10 Steps for Remote Workers to Establish a Daily Meditation Practice

10 Steps for Remote Workers to Establish a Daily Meditation Practice
Being a remote worker is the perfect context in which to begin a meditation practice. You aren't in a cubicle farm or open workspace where interruption is an imminent threat. I've been meditating for 29 years and working in tech for 18. I've experienced my fair share of interruptions. I have to say that shifting to remote work a few years ago was heaven. We are in a golden age, friends! Embrace the space.
I wrote the list of ten below assuming you have at minimum semi-private space and supportive friends, family, roommates, and or flat mates.   
  1. Start with meditating for just 5 minutes.
  2. Turn off notifications on your computer and phone.
  3. Commit to 15 minutes a day and mark that on your calendar. Why fifteen? I thought you said 5 minutes? 
  4. Expand your 5 minute meditation to 10 minutes.
  5. Create back up plans for when your typical meditation time gets booked.
  6. Expand your 10 minutes to 20 minutes, and meditate more than once a day! Make it a goal to meditate for 20 minutes, twice a day.
  7. Explore meditating at different times of day and different locations - other than at your desk!
  8. Explore different types of meditations to keep inspired and engaged.
  9. Join a community of like minded people for social support. You can start with my Facebook page, Instagram, and YouTube page. Some other recommendations.
  10. Download my 5 Minute Focus Meditation for free right now to take a step in the right direction.
