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.
- Do you feel any kind of discomfort while meditating?
- How can I improve for tomorrow?
- Can someone with a meditation habit that has lasted years give me advice to build a long lasting practice? Any golden rules of how you meditate?
- What are the benefits of meditation?
- I’m having trouble with running out of time at the end of the night to practice meditation. I either stay up later to do it or I miss it and go to bed on time. Any advice?
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.
- What are the advantages you see with meditation in a group?
- I wonder if there are others who have trouble visualizing, while meditating? Is yes, can you do it now? If yes, what did you do that allowed you to visualize? I am so frustrated! TIA.
- It’s so easy to stop meditating and not get back into it. How do I persist with my practice even when it seems like I don’t have time or patience for it?
- Does anyone use a candle when they meditate?
- Does anybody use a meditation pillow? And do you meditate first thing in the morning or later?
- How long before you feel that meditation is working?
- What is your practice like? Do you ever find yourself avoiding meditation?
- Why do you choose to meditate? Is it because of how it makes you feel?
- Is better if you meditate with more people?
- How long do you usually meditate and what’s in your mind when meditating? How efficiently keep concentrating?
