What is the best method and time of day to meditate for focus and energy?

I love to meditate as soon as I wake up.
I don't check my phone.
I wash my face, brush my teeth, go to the bathroom and I have a glass of water. All these things help me to wake up. Then I meditate for 10 to 20min.
This ritual help me start my day all relaxed and focused.

For me, it's the first thing in the morning, before any kind of interactions with the world. Perfectly, when I get up earlier than everybody else, avoiding all notifications on my phone and don't checking any emails or even news. After meditation in that case, I will react much easier to whatever comes next during the day. Also, being an introvert, I feel like having a little more fuel to participate in social activities, and eventually become less tired after.

Morning, after I drink water and write in my journal. These two tasks give me time to wake up and start thinking about meditating. It is becoming a habit now. As soon as i am done journaling, I automatically start attending to my breath. I take that as a cue to settle in, drop in, and start my meditation. It makes me feel like I am putting myself first.

If you are just starting meditation, find a time of day where you have at least 10 minutes to yourself. I would suggest starting with guided meditation and once you feel like you’re able to find that on your own then move onto unguided. Either right when you wake up or before you go to bed are, I think the best times to meditate. Hope you find peace!

I follow assorted programs from Headspace’s app when I wake-up and when I sleep. I also try to squeeze to 10 min semi guided sessions in the middle of the day too.

In my comfiest place where its quiet and relaxed . Its better at the end of a working day. I try and link it to another task so when my daufhter is in the bath i have at least 10 mins to meditate.

For focus and energy, I find taking the time after my morning rituals but before I begin work the best time to meditate. Calms me down and reminds me what matters, a very centering habit before the day’s challenges threaten to overwhelm. After that, about 3-4pm. helps me finish the day on a positive note.

For me it's in the morning. Helps me to focus before work. But I also like to meditation in the evening before bed. It helps quiet mind chatter so I can rest better.

For me, doing mindfulness meditation for 10-20 minutes in the morning helps me start my day off with clarity. I don’t know if it gives me energy per se, but it does help me focus my energy better, instead of wandering around with activities.

I recently read the book, The 5am Club and it suggests waking up at 5:00 and spend long your first hour across these 3 areas: the first 20 min exercising or getting your heart rate going, 20 min meditating, and 20 min on growth (reading, Ted talk, podcast etc). So I’ve been meditating in the morning when it’s still quiet in the house and before the craziness of the day begins. 🙂

For focus and energy I meditate as soon as I wake up so that I can set my intention for the day and get pumped up about it.

3pm. To reflect on the days work and what has been accomplished thus far. And to recharge for the rest of the work day and evening with my family!!

I use headspace, like Andy’s voice and techniques.
Best time would be in the morning, but as I start work very early, afternoon or even just before bed, is better than not at all.
