How to Make Meditation Super Easy (video)

Hiya Gorgeous!

Whenever I feel a little off or anxious, it’s usually a sign that I’ve neglected my inner life. Instead of searching for the next book, blog or trend, I know I just need to sit my tush on the cush and go inside.

The world will always make us feel like the answers are out there. But you and I both know that the opposite is true.

Your ability to realign yourself by turning inward is your superpower, and helping you do that more is the goal of today’s video.

Meditation has been a grounding force in my life for over a decade.

It calms my mind, soothes my nervous system and reduces stress. Meditation will do that for you and more, it will also empower you to follow your dreams, achieve your goals and feel your very best—no matter what life throws at you this glorious year!

Click play and let’s walk you through some easy practices to demystify meditation so that it’s both doable and enjoyable. No need to over think it, be intimidated by it or blow it off, yet again. Meditation is medicine, my friends. So let’s start feeling better, asap!

In this video, you’ll learn:

  • What meditation is really about (it may not be what you think!)
  • Proper posture and position
  • 4 simple techniques to ground and guide you
  • And why a regular practice will transform you

So make sure to watch the video and then talk to me. I want to hear from you and I’ve got a little challenge for ya, to help jump start your progress.

Your turn: In the next 24 hours, I want you to take 10 minutes and give one of these practices a try. Let me know you’re up for the challenge by dropping a comment below and saying, “I’m in!”

I love you and I want the best for you this year—body, mind and spirit. Let the meditation begin. xo!

Peace and deep breaths,

    Believe if meditation was part of our educational life, we would have definitely seen a more successful life. Thank you for the very thoughtful post to explain the benefits of meditation.

  7. Paula says:

  11. David says:

    Try adding 1 minute breathing meditations to daily activities as a regular practice – after brushing teeth, going to bathroom, after breakfast, before starting car engine, before opening first emails at work, and so on, including every time we go to the bathroom! It all adds up, reinforces and creates a habit……

  12. Beverly says:

    I am in! Can’t wait to start the guided mediation.

  13. Jo-Ann says:

    I’m in

  14. Hey, First of all I like to thank you for such an amazing video. I want to include meditation in my daily activity but as I am new bee in this field have not much knowledge about how to start meditation and which posture is helpful. This video helps me a lot and I will definitely follow these tips on my routine practice.

  15. Dana Lee says:

    Thank you for this. Since my wife left me and the kid’s. I’ve been struggling. Meditation is starting to help with my anxiety. Your a blessing.

  16. I’m in! You have such a beautiful soothing voice Kris ?

  17. Darlene Ungard says:

    I’m in! Kris, your video is spot on. I took an 8-week TM class and loved so much I took again. The instructor’s mentor was His Holiness Dalai Lama who he met and studied with in the 80’s. I am blessed to have crossed paths and am trying to put into practice what I’ve learned. I use three meditation types: seated, analytical and mantra. My favorite mantra Om Mani Palme Hum is by Imee Ooi. It’s 10 minutes, the perfect length for beginners. You are so right about being gentle and forgiving when your mind wanders to lovingly tell yourself it’s okay and just begin again. You are such an inspiration to your many followers. Getting your emails is like hearing from a good friend. Always positive, cheerful and loving.

    To your good health!

  18. Shel says:

    I’m in…I just love you spending time listening to you. You are my inspiration Kris. God bless you!!

  19. Cindy says:

    I’m IN! Thanks for this. Really love the tips….I’ve got monkey brain! 🙂

  20. Lisa says:

    I’m in! I’ve been wanting to develop a meditation practice for a long time now, but struggle with consistency. I’m hoping your tools will help me to achieve the consistency I’m craving! Thank you Kris.

  21. Helen says:

    I took a transcendental meditation course four years ago and have practiced about a dozen times. I’m now faced with melanoma – let this be my year of healing and get practising that meditation. Thanks for the inspiration and happy new year

  22. Helen says:

  23. Fred O'Hara says:

    I’m in. Meditation has always been a challenge for me. My mind wanders a lot and a simple 10 minute meditation usually turns into 20-30 minutes as I try to stay focused. I have had head and neck cancer on/off for 2 1/2 years. I constantly struggle with negative thoughts and regrets. Why did I do that, why did I say that, how do I say I’m sorry, and so on. Some of these events happened many years ago. I know I cannot change the past and need to focus on the future.
    I enjoyed your summit and hope to find inner peace one day.

    • David says:

      Reduce 10 minutes to shorter periods of say 1 or 2 mins. and build from there as it starts to work and as you gain confidence…..use this process to learn to notice all thoughts (positive or negative) more and more early, use the mind words ‘noting (the thought), accepting (its there) and letting go (of the thought) by actively coming back to the breath rising/falling – to begin with this you may have to repeat three times………..just see all thoughts like bubbles that arise, float and go pop….they have no real substance and are impermanent – just a habit we have learnt – so, no big deal!

  24. William says:

    Excellent lesson!

  25. Ana says:

    I’m in 🙂

  26. Melissa CHEESEMAN says:

    I’m in…never seriously tried this. I’ve done yoga here and there…again, not seriously enough.
    And, with a recurrence of cancer just diagnosed this week…I am trying not to give in to fear, anxiety, and hopelessness.

  27. Sarah says:

    Hi Kris, I am in hospital at moment recovering from operation for breast cancer, along with anxiety and depression this was the icing on the cake. BUT having been recommended and directed to your website has been a godsend inspiration, and this counting meditation is helping me as I lay here.
    Thank you xxx

  28. happy wheels says:

  31. minion rush says:

    This is awesome. I love that it looks so nice but is utilitarian also. Wish we had space for it. It would solve all my clutter issues by the me.

  32. Everlee says:

    I’m in! Thank you for explaining the different ways to meditate through breath focus, it helped me A LOT!

  33. Maryfrances J Adams says:

    I’m In

  34. Kim says:

    I’m in!

    Focusing on breathing is challenging to me because I tend to take over. My body knows how to breath, me not so much. I’m able to watch it but it takes a lot of focus and energy to do so. The intermission between in and out feels like holding my breath, there is not much room for long(er) intermissions: I can feel where my energy is stuck and not flowing. To be honest, by now I’m a bit scared for breathing because I tend to take over (controlling) and I screw it up (pardon my French) with some challenging consequences. My body does have a natural breathing, as long as I butt out. It’s not that deep (I can train that), but it’s there in my belly. Despite my interference, it’s a good thing my body still knows what’s it’s doing and very capable of doing so.

    Sometimes I listen to binaural beats: I will try the Deep Meditation track. I have a whole folder with guided meditations, including some of yours. Maybe I need to experiment a bit to discover what works for me. I often turn to Eckhart Tolle and just listen to him. It resonates with me on a deep level and I use this resonating and his voice as an anchor to keep bringing my attention back to the present. Sometimes I snap my fingers to bring me back out of thinking, in some situations this works.

    I’m going to spend some time with you. I find you inspiring and genuine. Thank you.

  35. Laura says:

    I’m in!

  40. Connie says:

    I’m in! I’m trying to learn meditation, but I’m not very good at it yet. Any more than 5 or 10 minutes, and I get antsy. I guess I need more practice. Thanks so much for all your words of wisdom, Kris! I absolutely love listening to you!!

  41. Allison Donner says:

    I’m in! I’ve tried meditation before but it hasn’t stuck. You make it seem so easy and much less complicated then I have made it in the past. I’m looking forward to adding meditation to my days and seeing what positive changes come from it. Thank you so much!

  45. Hi Kris, I’ve followed you for years and I love you and everything you do for the world. As a four-time cancer thriver, I appreciate the role meditation plays in my health and well-being. I do various types of meditation and I’m sharing this awesome video with others that struggle with how to get started. Thank you!

  46. Mary Lou says:

    I’m in.

  47. I’m in. I don’t want to keep looking for the answer “out there, somewhere.” I’m hoping this will also aid me in getting more focused for my prayer times.

    • kris says:

      Right on, Cheryl. “In there” is where the answers are, and yes, meditation can certainly be a good warm up for prayer. x

  48. Helga says:

    I’m in ?

  49. Victoria says:

    I’ve been IN for a while. I use and LOVE both your meditation albums every day. I have given them as gifts to my daughters as well. The image of my mind as a crazy wild jungle is soooo right on! Although I am starting to find a few hidden garden spots too! Thank you thank you thank you! Great video BTW!

      Cheers to the hidden garden spots! And I’m so happy my albums are helping you, Victoria. Thank you for your comment. xo!

  52. Robin Gehrs says:

    Yikes, I must have misunderstood what I signed up for. I would like at this time to continue getting the email posts from Kris but can you please help me NOT receive notification when someone comments. Nothing personal, it’s just too many emails for me to manage. Thank you! Blessings to you!

    • Ruthie says:

      Same here! I tried to change my subscription but I still get emails every time someone comments!!

      • Zoey Dent says:

        Hi ladies! Whenever you post a comment, you’ll see options (before you submit) on what notifications you’d like to receive. If you aren’t able to pick a setting before submitting, the emails you receive should have a link in them to manage your notification subscription. If not, please reach out to Thanks!

  53. Ruthie says:

    I’m ALL in! I have followed and admired you for years. However, I have only dabbled here and there. I was recently diagnosed with cancer. As a 43 year old single mom of 3, I am now kicking my self for not jumping all in earlier. It’s now time to “back up and punt” as they say! Thank you for sharing all of your wisdom!!

  54. Christie says:

    I’m in! “Monkey mind” – that’s exactly it! Your emails always come at the perfect time – getting into a regular meditation practice is one of my big goals for this year. Thank you for all you do to inspire so many of us to love and care for ourselves and others!

  55. Ruby says:

    I think you’re brilliant. I’m working up the discipline to bring these practices in to my life. I love how simple you make it.
    Thank you.

  80. Jennifer says:

    I’m in !

  81. Karen Laharty says:

    I’m in! Thank you so much for the gentle reminders about how to enhance our lives in such simple yet powerful ways. I am in constant need of the confirmation that it is ok to put myself first and that time spent with myself will not only benefit my own spiritual and emotional self but those around me as well (friends, family, co-workers). Every year I think ‘this is going to be the year!’ to open up to living an authentic life full of self discovery and self awareness. I always fall off the wagon somewhere along the way. Life gets in the way of living so often and your posts are really helping me come back to centre and stay focused. I know we’re only 9 days into 2018 but I’ve been on this journey since last summer when I did the 21 day challenge. And yes, I fell off the wagon. I am happy to report that I have a green drink on my desk this morning and a brilliant orange drink in the fridge for this afternoon’s snack 😉 You are a real inspiration Kris, thank you for all you have to share.

  82. I’m in. I’m pretty good at meditating, my difficulty is showing up. I don’t understand how creating habbits (routine) can be so difficult for me. Hopefully some day it will stick. I keep trying… specially everytime I see your lovely face. You are the best! Patricia 😉

  83. Susan Stewart says:

    I’m in! You are so sweet and funny! Thanks — I needed this today!

  84. Kristy says:

    I’m in, Kris! _/\_ How often I forget to disconnect from the constant stimulation of life and center back to love and oneness. Thanks for these tips!! Looking forward to this tonight. 😀

    Love you Kris Carr! I’m in!

  86. Barb Miller says:

    I’m in!

  87. Carol says:

    My only “resolution” for this year is to spend this winter in more times of meditation, thoughts about how I want to live at 75. I tend to busy days, so my life will be under scrutiny and I need time to ponder.

  88. Carol says:

    I’m in. needed the reminder

  89. Carrie says:

    I do guided meditation at bedtime to put myself to sleep. It’s wonderful. But I also want to rely on myself to meditate which I’ve gotten out of the habit of doing. Your simple steps are what I needed to hear to get back at it. I’m in! Thank you so much, Kris! P.S. Love getting your videos! ?

  90. Thank you for sharing this! I’ve always wanted to meditate because of my mind races! but I’ve never really been able to.. your tips really help, thank you!

    • Leah says:

      Kris, your voice and message is so perfect in the your meditations. I have been YouTubing meditations for a long time… and I have found some great ones for free… but I have to say, I’m glad that I purchased your meditations – it was well worth it. When I was going through a really tough time with adrenals and colitis, your meditations became the missing piece that helped to move me deeper on my journey to healing. I’m a believer in meditation, and practice daily. I’m in!

    Morning Goddess Kris,

    I would love to type in “I’m in” however, I have already completed 40 minutes of meditation before turning on my computer! hahahahahaha… this video is awesome and your jungle cat is too cute! btw/love the sweater anyhow… great info here and I am going to check out your meds on “self-care.” My intention both personally and professionally (I teach yoga and am certified as a life coach) for 2018 is to practice and teach more radical self-care and you my dear one are an inspiration and I learn from you and than “pass it on.”
    Thank you and
    Wahe Guru

    • kris says:

      Wow, Karen, I bow to you! That’s awesome. And I love your intention, the world certainly needs that right now. Also, sweater is from J crew, just sayin’. You may need to scoop it up. x

      • Karen Drosnes says:

        Thank you Goddess… LOVE J Crew! I wanted to share with you that I am 59 years young and just started teaching yoga last year… love new paths! The big share is that I have been following you, Gabby B, Marie F, Danielle L. and Kate N for awhile now and am soooooo pleased to see what you Spirit filled gems are doing for the new generation of New-Thought Provoking Leaders! Your journey of self-care has inspired me to make some serious self-care changes in my life experience… keep on keeping it real gurl as you rock! Mucho love to ya!

    Love you ….. followed you for many a year
    I have a mental illness as the result of a crime .
    Meditation is tricky for me due to my anxiety and I’ve struggled for years . Going into my body does not feel safe . Years ago I practised transendental meditation and it just as you You describe here.
    I think I’ll try the breathing technique you suggest of saying in and out and start very slowly and see .
    My minds been through a lot and races constantly .
    Be Well
    You are so cool always have been

    • kris says:

      Kimberly, I bet guided meditations would be helpful for you. Give them a try and I love you. My prayer for you for 2018 is that going inside will become the safest place for you. Safe and nourishing. xo

        You are the best !!!
