Meditation Tip – How Long to Meditate
A Very common question posted by meginning meditators is “How long should I meditate for?”.
While the duration of the time spent meditation varies with individuals, as well as with experience, the best rule of thumb is to start small with a comfortable meditation time and work your way up as you gain experience.
Meditation should be a pleasurable experience and the more pleasurable your beginning experience the more likely you will stick with a regular practice.
A good starting time is 10 minutes. The comfort of this time can vary by individual. It can seem like hours to someone who is in an uncomfortable position, and it can seem like mere moments to others.
The most important thing to remember is that the duration of your practice is important, but not as important as consistency. A regular practice of meditation will eventually bring regular gains. The effects of meditation accumulate over time and sitting for as little as 10 minutes a day will bring greater benifits than ocassionally meditating for an hour.
The Bottom Line is … Just Sit!
