We are all living such busy lives that lead to high levels of stress, anxiety, etc. It’s essential to carve out time to sit and down and meditate.
If you have tried meditation and you’ve done it a couple of times, you’ll realize that it’s not actually “too hippie,” because it really does wonders.
A question most beginners ask is—“how long should I meditate?”
What Type of Result Do You Want To Get?
When you meditate, you want to get something specific out of it—it could be peace, calm, or you are looking for a deeper meaning.
Whatever the reason is, the time you spend meditating can be based on the results you want.
The thing you should remember with meditation is that the results are not always immediate.
This is also why if you meditate, you might want to consider keeping a journal. Write down the effects of the meditation you experienced that day, no matter how small.
It will help you track its progress and see how it’s working for you.
Another thing to keep in mind is that meditation is not science, rather, it’s an art.
Be faithful to the practice and follow through your intention with discipline and commitment, and rest assured, you are going to get the results that you want.
That also means you need to be patient because unfortunately, you don’t get to decide how quickly the results manifest in your life.
What’s important is you’re consistent.
Don’t worry, I know you really want to get an idea of the specific amount of time for meditation. So, here are some of them…
Meditating for just 10 minutes a day is enough to see significant results.
If you’re new to this, meditating for 2 to 3 minutes is fine, you can increase the time gradually as you ease into the practice.
