What time is best for mediation.

As you start to learn how to meditate you need to experiment and see what works best for you. Find out when is the best time for you to practice. There is no right time for everyone. Some people find early in the morning works best for them. For others, it’s late at night before going to bed.

Whatever time you decide works best for you, it must be the time when no one can interrupt your practice.

Where is the best place to meditate?

Finding a quiet place where you know you won’t be disturbed is also important. This can be a quite corner in your house or a park near your home. For beginners, a room in your home where you can learn to meditate without being interrupted is typically is all you need.

You should learn to meditate in a room or space that will give you the freedom to get into a comfortable position so that it will be easier for the blood to flow to different parts of your body. You can be sitting straight up when you start meditating, making sure that your breathing is even and rhythmic, then, as you begin to empty your mind of negative or stressful thoughts, you may want to lie on your back for the rest of the session.

You can begin by simply closing your eyes and thinking of something that makes you happy. Try not to worry about the things that have stressed you out that day or the tasks that are still left uncompleted. Once you have found the thoughts that give you peace and contentment, try keeping track of them in a meditation journal that you can keep with you all throughout the day when you’re feeling stressed or down.

To convert your home into a place for meditation, you need to create a serene meditative environment. Consider getting a scented candle, a small diety like Buddha or a spiritual image to inspire you. Keep in mind that it’s never a good idea to fill your place of meditation with clutter. This is your sanctuary so keep it clean and clutter-free.
Finally, you might want to invest in a sitting cushion. It will help you relieve pressure on your legs and will allow you to extend your meditation practice.

Whatever time of the day or place you choose for your meditation practice, the most important thing you need to remember is that you need to start. Don’t look for excuses to postpone. Starting to meditate event for 5 minutes a day can make a huge difference and make you see the amazing benefits meditation can offer you.
