Start a Free 3-Week Meditation Today With Deepak Chopra

Follow me on:

I'm a big proponent of meditation, and always love finding programs that help people with this journey. I've already written about the benefits of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programs, and now I have another recommendation to share. Deepak Chopra regularly holds 3-week Meditation Challenges where you are guided through meditation once a day for three weeks. Participation is worldwide, so you gain the benefit of knowing you have a large group of people sharing in the meditation and rooting you on. And because it takes about three weeks to form a new habit, you can participate for three weeks and potentially gain momentum to carry you through for quite some time.

The benefits of meditation are cumulative, meaning that the more you practice, the greater resilience you build toward stress. And with meditation, you see greater benefits with regularity of practice than with length of sessions, meaning it's better to meditate a little every day (as you do with this program) than to sit for long sessions once or twice a week. Just choose a regular time and work it into your schedule, and you're halfway there.

This link will take you to Deepak Chopra's 21-Day Meditation Challenge. I recommend that you try it--if you're seeing this link a little late, you can still join whenever you come. I'll be participating, too, and would love to hear about your experiences with this program, and with meditation in general. Please feel free to add your thoughts in the comments section, sign up for my free stress management newsletter for ongoing updates, and have a wonderful week! Below are some resources that can help you to better understand meditation and make it part of your life, whether or not you join the Chopra Challenge. Enjoy!
