Should I Meditate?

Illustration: Oscar Ramos Orozco
'Should I Meditate?' is a wonderfully simple article on the subject of meditation, written by Scott McDowell and published on The 99%.

Scott's advice includes:

'Establish a routine. Many people meditate in the morning when they wake up, or at night before bed. The big thing is making it a regular part of your day. You can start by sitting for just a few minutes. In the beginning, it's feels very difficult to be still.  Work your way up 20-30 minutes, or more. But remember, meditation is all about consistency; it's much better to do 5 minutes each day than an hour once a week. '
