What is the best time to meditate?

A lot of people like meditating in the morning to start the day right. I actually like doing it in the evening to go over my day and let it all go before I sleep.

I like to meditate in the morning, it helps to set the tone for the day. And a quick 10-15 minute meditation at night can help calm the stress of the day and aid in restful sleep too.

Meditation seems to be best right before bed. I began meditating to help with my sleep concerns. While meditating any time helps improve my sense of wellbeing, it has the most effect on my rest right before bed. I can sit up in bed after reflecting and writing down my daily gratitude. Then, I can use a pillow as a meditation cushion and complete my evening routine with a short meditation.

The morning. It allows you to start off the day by centering yourself and bring awareness to the things you need to all day.

I prefer meditating in the morning before the start of the day. It’s a great way to get your head in the right space while at the same time preparing to tackle whatever the day may throw your way. It’s a reminder to be mindful of your actions and reactions before interruptions and the chaos of every day.

2:15 – I've just digested lunch, the bulk of my work has been taken care of for the day – I have a calendar reminder on my phone that I'm much more likely to heed at work when I really do need a break than at home where I'm already relaxed

I find doing it first thing in the morning and last thing before bed is a great way to meditate. Morning meditation sets the vibe and intention for your day. Before bed meditation plants the seed of change in your brain so that it gets better absorbed in your subconscious. If I'm really out of focus during the day I will stop and breathe to clear my mind.

Cecilie C.
I think the morning is a great time to meditate in order to start the day off clear minded and energized.

I like to meditate in the morning because it gets me ready for the day, but I also enjoy meditating right before I go to bed. I feel that this practice prepares me and my mind to slow down and relax.

For my main daily meditation, I find a routinized morning time the best…However, throughout the day, whenever needed is great as well.

The afternoon, It helps de-stress after a long day. Sometimes I'm already stressed in the morning though and will do it than to prepare myself. I also do special meditations for sleep (for my insomnia) at night about every 3 nights (enough to keep it under control, but not too often that I become used to it and therefore it loses its effect).

Mirko Z.
When you are able. I try to do it first thing in the morning when my mind is still calm. It can also be a good way to calm your mind during other parts of the day.

Jack F.
In the morning for me. After I've fully woken up and had drunk my water (and tea if needed that day), I write down all my important information and tasks for the day on an index card. Now I have cleared my head and with this, I meditate.

Hajo P.
I try to mediate in the evenings, but I often fine dime too sleepy to complete the session. Mornings are probably better, but it depends on you and what you need.

Isaac Z.
It depends on the person. Personally, I don’t know. Sometimes I do it in the morning and sometimes at night, but either way I often fall asleep.

Zelda F.
The best time to meditate is after I exercise. If I can get myself up and out the door first thing each morning, move, and then sit and meditate before hopping in the shower, that would be ideal.

Gabriella E.
Well, I think the best time is in the afternoon. It's the time where most of my bad thoughts pop up, so it's really helpful to take some time rest and clear out my thoughts!

Calogero U.
I find it best to meditate before going to bed. Morning or mid-day attempts have not felt comfortable or successful

Emmy C.
Morning is the best time to meditate when trying to develop a consistent meditation habit. I also like to meditate early afternoon during midday energy slump. I find napping difficult due to medications. Instead, I use this time to meditate and often go more deeply.

Ronja E.
It's the morning for me. I start the day calm and focussed. My thinking seems more clear after I meditate. I incorporate it into my morning routine so it becomes a habit

Robin Y.
I prefer meditating at night before sleep as an opportunity to wind down and disconnect from the day. I will also meditate whenever I start to feel overwhelmed throughout the day or when I feel tired as a quick sleepless nap.

Ask E.
My preference is to meditate just before bed. It allows me to help focus on my body and the tiredness I’m feeling and help control my anxiety and rushing thoughts

Carl C.
I tend to enjoy doing it first thing in the morning to start my day off centered. If I had a ruff day I also like to so it right before bed to quiet my mind. Meditation is something you can do anywhere and anytime of the day. You just have to find what works best for you.

Sara P.
I prefer to meditate in the evening at the moment. I find the best time changes with the seasons. What ever time works best for you is the best time to meditate.

K The U.
First thing in the morning or last thing at night. This opens the day with a lowered level or reactivity and allows one to leave the day behind in the night-time.

Kate J.
To build a successful habit, it's good to 'anchor' it to a pre-existing habit. So every morning when I wake up and have a drink of water, it reminds me to meditate. Meditation can happen any time of day, multiple times a day but for me, I prefer it first thing in the morning to set me up for a great day.

حامد کامروا N.
The best time to meditate iswhen you can put aside time for yourself to be alone.

Aiden Z.
I like to meditate in the morning about an hour after waking. I also meditate just before my afternoon nap.

Carl W.
I personally think at night, cause it helps you sleep better and you've been through a whole day and it really gives you a chance to process everything.

Irmela C.
I find that in the morning when I meditate for 15 minutes, I can start my day more clear headed. Also, I have PTSD, so I always in the past found it necessary to fall asleep with the TV on, just to stay out of my head. Now, I use some awesome guided meditations that relax me mentally and physically.

Annelene X.
In the evening in bed before sleep to calm myself.

Ella U.
I find the best time is when I need help being calm. I usually meditate an hour or so before bed. But I can increase that if I have a stressful day. Even 10 minutes can help calm the mind.

Reneezing N.
Any time!!! Lol

It must admit. I am in love with the calm app. Calm combined with fabulous I am meditating for at least 10 min a day 5-7 days a week now!

Fabio O.
I meditate in the morning and at night. When I wake up to get myself ready for a stressful day and before I go to sleep to get myself to unwind and relax.

Mads C.
1. The moment your eyes open. Command the day. See how it will play out. 2. During the day see your goals accomplished. 3. Be in touch with your body. Check In, mind your thoughts, be aware. 4. Before you sleep ask a question. Reflect, smile and see a great night and day! So the short answer is anytime or all of the time.

Jessi Z.
I think theres no 1 size fits all. I meditate in the morning. It just calms me down. I would just suggest to try it a few times after waking up and then a few times at a different time. Then you'll see what makes you feel the best. 😊

Orandino E.
Honestly, for me, both Morning and Night are perfect times to meditate, and for different reasons. Morning, for preparation for the day, and Night, for restoration from the day's stresses.

N Ris Q.
When time is available and when you have to make time

Tobias Y.
According to me the best time to meditate is during the morning. After u wake up complete brushing your teeth and all your washroom stuff and then before you go for your exercise session you should meditate. That is the best time and moreover, it gives u a fresh source of energy for your exercise session and for the rest of the day. Also after visiting home from your workplace, you can meditate. If you can do both, believe me, your life will change.

Linda C.
In the morning when your head is still quiet and you can focun on being productive and feeling happy the rest of the day.

Juan N.
The one that works for you. Try during the morning after waking up, or at the middle of the day during the lunch time break, or at night before going to bed.
