It’s okay to ask for help—even when it comes to a practice like meditation that’s meant to help with clarity, focus and calm. The truth is, sitting still, with your eyes closed and focusing on your breath doesn’t always come easily. In theory it sounds heavenly, but getting to that place of zen can feel overwhelming for newbies and expert meditators alike. Enter: meditation cards. They’re a simple way to set intentions, redirect your thoughts and find a mantra to jumpstart your practice or guide your day. There’s a variety of meditation card decks out there—here’s what to look for whether you’re looking to pull a card for a quick burst of inspiration or want a deeper start to your daily meditation practice.
