When you wake up in the morning, set an intention for your day.

Close your eyes, calm your thoughts, and listen to your breath.

Think of a quality you would like to cultivate, like kindness, compassion, or generosity. When you have settled on a quality, say it out loud and think about how the word feels in your soul and on your tongue. What is its essence?

Then, mentally map out your day — how could that quality manifest in the things you have planned?

Enter your day inspired to bring that quality into all of your activities.

This week’s meditation is by our friends Ellie and Lodro from MNDFL. It uses simple techniques that will help you cultivate your daily practice.
