You’ve made the commitment to practice meditation daily. You’ve read the research stating that meditation makes you happier, more productive and healthier - and you’re ready to go! Filled with enthusiasm, you jump out of the gates and thread together a few solid days of practice. Then the inevitable happens. You’re up all night with a sick kid or you travel out of town to meet with a client. Your schedule gets out of whack and poof, just like that, you forget to meditate. Feeling less enthusiastic now, you skip practice the next day, and then the next. You fall off the meditation wagon.
