How you can make a minute the most productive time of your day.

How to Make Meditation Easy
Two aspects make it easy to adopt:

First, aiming to meditate most days, rather than every day, is a good goal. Consistency counts—the more often you meditate, the easier it gets and the deeper and more enduring the benefits—but if you miss a day, your inner critic won’t have a chance to call you a failure. I call this approach “daily-ish.” It has elasticity, or “psychological flexibility,”
a key concept from behavior-change research, which can help lead to an
abiding habit, be it a meditation practice, a new gym routine, or a commitment to learn Esperanto.

Second, one minute is a supremely low bar. The proposition of a single minute is uniquely unintimidating. What’s more, it’s scalable. After one minute of meditation, people often think to themselves: I’m already here; might as well keep going a bit. As the meditation teacher Cory Muscara explains, this is a key moment, because you’re moving from “extrinsic” motivation (that is, meditating because you feel like you have to) to the more powerful “intrinsic” motivation (that is, meditating because you want to). And the second you opt in for more meditation, you’re doing it out of actual interest, which makes it much more likely to have a lasting effect.

He makes some good points. For most, if you meditate because you have to, the mind will find all kinds of reasons to skip it. When you meditate because you want to, then it becomes a part of you, a habit that becomes just as strong a brushing ones teeth, eating ones favorite food, or drinking ones favorite beer.

There's a difference between knowing the path and walking the path. The final phase is when you look forward to walking the path because it has become a part of you. Leaving you feeling empty without it and feeling a lot better while you're doing it and after you've done it.
