What is the right amount of time to meditate daily?
I've trained under three different meditation techniques and all of the instructors gave me the same recommendation about meditation frequencyand I've shared it below.
- Duration ... At least 20 minutes. Allow a few minutes on both sides of the meditation ,to get settled in and then also a few minutes to slowly bring yourself out of meditation.
- When to meditate during the day...if work is your biggest stressor, I would meditatate before you begin work and then at noon (if there's a place at work where you can find some privacy to meditate in.) If you need to balance the stress in your work life as well as private life then you can try either a morning or new meditation for work ...then do meditation immediately after completing your workday to optimize your time with family and friends at home
