I wrote a little while ago about why I meditate, but in today’s post I’m telling you why YOU should. I try to not be preachy and the notion of telling anyone they ‘have’ to do something makes me feel a bit icky inside, so take all of this with a pinch of salt if it isn’t your jam. If you’re interested, hear me out, you might be swayed…



I’m sorry but I don’t think anyone can use this excuse for something that is going to take 10 MINUTES out of their day. Granted I’m not a mum or a business owner myself, but we’ve all got 10 minutes to be found somewhere right? Even if you spend 10 minutes less scrolling on your phone, using that time for meditation will honestly, change the game for you. Have a little think about where you could grab a few moments on your own and begin with a few days a week. If you don’t have 10 minutes, anything is better than nothing! Even a few mindful breaths is a great habit to start.


I can probably guarantee that if you make meditation a regular practice in your daily life, you will without a doubt feel better because of it. You’ll sleep better, feel more in control of your life, be a kinder person. I’m basically saying it’s like pure magic (please try not to eye-roll at me)

For me, it makes me feel happier on bad day and like I can have a mini fresh start whenever I need to. The way I describe how I feel after I’ve meditated is the feeling of jumping into a cool pool on holiday when you’re too hot. Instant relief.


We are surronded by people. It’s not often that we are actually alone, and having something that you can look forward to and work on for yourself, by yourself, is a great feeling. Knowing that you don’t have to depend on anyone to keep it up with you, and you are the sole person in charge always makes me feel motivated and inspired.

Have I tempted you yet?

    I really want to start meditating but i always seem to not remember to meditate. I need to make it a routine.

    • Sometimes I forget too and end up doing it just before bed 🙂

    I’ve tried a couple of times to get into meditating and I just can’t do it! I’m so bad at switching off and end up giving up after a few days because it’s almost too much effort to not think haha

    • Have you tried doing the 3 minute ones on headspace? Planning them into your evening routine might make them stick 🙂

  • You’ve definitely tempted me! I feel like I would be terrible at it and give up quickly though – any tips for getting started? 🙂 xxx

    • Try the Headspave app, you can even do it for 3 minutes 🙂

  • This makes me want to try and start meditating every day again. I started the headspace app but then stopped. Now I’m feeling more anxious again this definitely looks like this is a good idea again! xx
