In order to maximise the benefits of meditation, it should be practiced daily and preferably at the same time each day.Â By so doing, your brain becomes disciplined to the practice more quickly and comes to expect the process at the same time daily. Some people meditate twice daily for 20-35 minutes at a time.Â The choice is up to the individual and what works best for them. That is one of the secrets of successful meditation. Finding out what works best for you. This can take a little bit of experimentation in order to find what works for you, but if you persevere, the results can be well worth it.
To begin with, you are unlikely to be able to meditate for more than 15-20 minutes without having extraneous thoughts intrude. With practice, this period will increase as your ability to focus increases.
