What if Meditation Doesn’t Work for Me?

What if Meditation Doesn't Work for Me?

There are many different treatment and therapy options that we believe in at Avalon Malibu. We’ve seen that variety can be a great thing in treatment settings. When there is a variety of treatment options, everyone has access to options that make sense for them. Meditation can be a great option for some, but for others, meditation doesn’t work. If you identify with the latter, then this blog post is for you.

What Do I Do if Meditation Doesn’t Work for Me?

If meditation hasn’t worked the way that you want it to, you’re not alone. There are many people that don’t have success with meditation for a variety of reasons. If you struggle with quieting your mind and finding peace, there are a few other options that you can consider.

Try Another Method

Did you know that there are many different types of meditation? Considering the method of meditation, such as guided meditation or staring at a candle flame, could be the solution that you’ve been looking for. However, these options may still not be the right choice for you. If you’re in this boat, there are many other options available.


Going for a walk can be an excellent way to calm down your mind. Consider putting on some quiet, soft music or letting yourself enjoy nature. Finding ways to exercise gently can be a great alternative to meditation, as it can help you slow down your mind and feel more at peace.


If you struggle with racing thoughts, then therapy could be the right option for you. A therapist can help you find the right coping skills for your situation and help you narrow down your different strategies. Working with the right therapist can make a world of difference. Consider if a member of the Avalon Malibu team could be right for you. Our staff can help you find alternatives to meditation.
