Step 1: Simple Setup

Setup & Tools

I know, I know. You need a setup AND tools? Here's the deal: meditation is a practice. It's a practice that I believe everyone should use & cultivate in their life, if only for ten minutes a day. I believe it will change your life with that amount of dedication. So if everyone's doing it, guess what? It will change the world.

I'm going to give you two potential setups, and you're free (obviously) to choose what you'd most like to start with.

Setup #1

  • A supportive and stationary chair. It should be easy to sit with the spine straight and the body relaxed, and the feet touching the ground.
  • A quiet space where you won't be disturbed.

Setup #2

  • A real meditation cushion (price range $30-$100+), meditation stool, or foam yoga block ($15-$30) for comfortable yet supported sitting on the ground, legs crossed or in a sort of lotus position from yoga. I use a Hugger Mugger rectangular yoga cushion. It has a hidden zipper on the side to remove filling and customize the height.
  • A quiet space where you won't be disturbed.

That wasn't hard at all, now was it?
