Speedy-busyness is one of the reasons I recommend that people establish consistency early on in their meditation practice. If you have a set place you go to meditate, that serves as the extra impetous to galvanize you to sit down and practice, and you’re not convincing yourself that you don’t have the time to set up your practice space.

That is why he became known as a buddha, or Awakened One. In taking on this simple sitting practice that the Buddha did, you are taking on a commitment to wake up. You may not have the desire to achieve ultimate enlightenment, and that’s fine, I promise, but the idea of being more awake and in tune with your life might sound appealing.
