How much should one meditate per day for progress?

I’d say the most skillful approach is to make a plan to meditate just as much as you would like to but also doesn’t stress you out thinking about as a commitment, for example, if you feel really busy, maybe just commit to five or 10 minutes a day. Maybe even 10 minutes feels like a lot, so just go with five. Like lots of habits here in fabulous, I think the best way to really make it consistent habit is to start with consistency first, so whatever allows you to build up consistency it’s important. Personally, I enjoy meditating, so if I sit down for five minutes, after five minutes are usually want to do more anyway, if I don’t have time to, then I’ll get back to whatever I was doing, but if I would do you have time, I can just meditate for longer. In the long run I think something like this is pretty sustainable. (dictated so probably plenty of spelling mistakes)

Try going for just 5 minutes at first and then go from there. It’s better to increase in small increments as well so it’s more attainable and realistic. Personally, 10 or 15 minutes a day is perfect and fits into my schedule. No matter how long you do it for you can always get better and focusing your mind and living in the present.

I started using guided meditation for at least 5 minutes every day to gain the habit , 2 years ago . Now a days , I just put a background sound or zen music and meditate For at least 20 minutes. In average 20 to 30 minutes from Monday to Friday . I do tiny quick ones ( 3 minutes ) on the weekends.

First start with a 3 minutes mediation and after a couple of days gradually increase the time to 5 minutes, then 7 minutes and so on.

Do you think that meditating can be harmful if someone needs to “get out of there head” rather than go deeper inside as meditation usually does?

I would start with just five minutes and build up from there. When you can do five minutes really well and stay focused then it's time to increase the time.

I really don’t know. For me, 10 minutes a day works. Sometimes I stop and meditate during the day if I am stressed and most days I also medidate before sleep because it helps me get better sleep. What I am certain of is that meditation works wonders for oneself!
