Time and place.
It's day nine of our meditation challenge and we're exploring the best times and places to practice meditation.
- Ideally, we should start and end our day with a meditation session: one in the morning that occurs not long after we wake up and another in the evening before going to bed. If that's not realistic for you, think about having a session in the first half of your day (later in the morning) and in the second half of your day (afternoon / evening) or whatever fits your schedule the best. Your meditations should be spaced out at least a few hours apart.
- Just as discussed in previous sessions, find a place where you can be comfortable and free from distractions.
A tip from Light at the end of this session that I loved: if you don't feel like setting an intention after you meditate, make a mental appointment for your next meditation. For example, take a few seconds to scan through the second half of your day and work out when and where you can do your second meditation and envision what that session will look and feel like (without expectation or judgement). Having the structure to our practice that we've developed over the last eight sessions has helped us prepare and practice in a way that helps us get the most benefit from meditation!
