If you'd like to meditate but are having trouble getting started, using guided meditations can be a great way to explore different types of meditation and to kickstart your meditation practice. You might find that certain approaches resonate with you while others don't.
If you don't like a guided meditation for any reason, don't assume that there is something wrong with you. Give yourself the benefit of the benefit. Turn it off and go do something else.
