How much, how long and how often do you meditate?

A lot of that depends on what I have going on in my life. If there are added stresses, then I will meditate extra even though there may be more to do. I long ago discovered that I am more productive and efficient if I take the time to meditate. As a general rule I meditate right after waking up and just before going to sleep, but I also sometimes squeeze in a few others. Right now I'm getting some physical therapy for an injury and after each session I get iced down. During that time I meditate on healing my body and helping it recover and get stronger. It just seems like the best use of my time. I hope this helps you 🙂

The ideal is 15 to 20 minutes twice daily. However, parenthood makes it a bit harder to have a regular practice. When babies become toddlers, it becomes a bit easier to explain and even let them join in their own way, but for the bulk of kids' toddler years, meditation is a flexible practice. I recently moved back to meditating every evening for 12 minutes, and grabbing my second slot on days that it is available. My eldest is a pre-teen and only now do I feel my practice settling into a bit of a routine again. And it is great! I do give a meditation 101 course, and I always recommend to look critically at your life and to add your first slot in the most easily accessible time of day FOR YOU. Start with 5 minutes and slowly build it up. When this practice is regular daily for about 15minutes, look at potentially totally adding a second slot and follow the same easy step-by-little-step procedure to make it a habit.

I meditate every morning through prayer to start the day, and every night to fall asleep. It helps me start the day on a positive note and end the day with a clear mind and to fall asleep faster and deeper.
