Do you meditate lying down or sitting up?

Aaron Holmes
Such a coincidence that this question came up when it did. I've always meditated lying down as that's the only way I found relaxing (my lower back hurts sitting up for 10 minutes which is a separate issue). Lately though I've been getting up early and since I meditate in the evenings, I found myself drifting off when I lie down. So will try sitting half up today. Think if you're not falling asleep and feel most comfortable lying down, then that should be fine

I usually meditate in bed before I get up, so I am laying down, but I try to prop myself up a bit so that I'm not laying flat, else I fall back to sleep.

It depends what I'm trying to get out of it and what time of day it is. If its the morning, or I want to feel energised after, I do it sitting. If it's before bed and I want to relax, I do it lying down.

You can choose either but my first one is lying down. Instead of pressing snooze for 10 minutes I use that time for a mediation session which really gives me a good start to the day.

I have started meditating by sitting on a pillow on the floor. I find this helps me focus on proper posture while breathing.
