I try to do it the same time everyday. It really helps because I know I have to do this now. Also, I will try to do it at a time when I am alone so that there are really less distractions. I also try to keep the track for guided meditation selected a day before so I don't have any excuse for not doing it.
- What time of day you find to be be the best for mediation? Why?
- How has meditation impacted your life?
- Do you like to meditate on any particular phrase or thought? How often does your meditation subject change?
- What are different ways of improving focus while I am studying? Can meditation help me in this?
- What do you think meditation is? What does it mean to you?
I meditate on my way to work, on a train. A glass of water when I wake up. 750m run to catch a bus, 750m run from bus stop to train station, 50 minutes sitting comfortably in the train – plenty of time to meditate 🙂
A timed break in my work day just to calm down so I can refocus when I get back to work. Getting a break makes me what to do it and the relief after is worth it.
I put my meditation cushion in a prominent location and made a little area that is nice for meditation. It makes it pop back into my brain after a long day, and makes it appealing.
I started waking up earlier to ensure I had the time to dedicate to meditation. It has now become so set that these mornings I wake very sharply without an alarm at 5am on the dot. I stretch, get out of bed, drink a glass of water and meditate.
I personally find it more fun when I add in meditation in my routine. A routine helps me to break into a new or helps me prepare for a sweet night, and meditating makes me excited for either both of these cases. Once I started meditating, I felt an immense amiable demeanor taking over me, ready to conquer almost anything, and the relaxing state you're at while meditating is impeccable. Thus, I genuinely look forward to meditating as I know I'd feel very relaxed at the end of the session, and it almost feels like a habit after doing it repeatedly.
I make it a habit to do it as part of my morning routine. After doing it a couple days in a row it became second nature to open up my phone and start meditating.

I have been meditating in the morning when I read my bible study. At night, I try and remember to meditate, but I really don’t have a set schedule yet.
For me before I exercised I make time to meditate. I set time throughout my day to exercise. So if I meditate if only 10-15 before I start, the work out great
I just do it first thing in the morning right after brushing my teeth. If you don't check your phone you're highly likely to jot have any distractions
Meditation is the last thing I do before going to sleep. In fact, it's an essential part of my sleep routine now. The quality and length of my sleep seems inferior when I don't meditate. So, I guess finding something you will be better at thanks to meditation ( e.g. I also occasionally do very brief meditations before facing unpleasant situations to tame my apprehensions) is a good way to immediately reinforce taking a moment to meditate.

- Does meditation need to be done the same time every day?
- How do you meditate to get focused?
- How do you keep yourself focused on meditation?
- At times I have difficulty staying awake when I meditate in the morning. Does it happen to you too? How do you stay awake?
- What good meditation resources/apps do you use once you’ve progressed from the in-app ones?
- What changes do you see in yourself when you meditate daily?
- My mind drifts off too much during meditation, what should I do about it?
