How long do you meditate for?
Everyone has different ways of meditating some are more comfortable to them.
If someone tries to tell you that it has to be done certain way, take advise but you will find your own way which works for you .
Some people prefer to meditate at a certain time of day every day and others do it whenever they have a spare few minutes.
You might decide to meditate for an hour or two on one day and only have 15 minutes to devote to it the next. The point is, you are doing it.
Get your body to understand when you are going to meditate by having a special place to do it .
If it helps burn a incense in that room to get the body to understand this means meditation time.
When you meditate, you’re taking positive steps to do something that is helpful within your own life, especially when you consider the potential that it has.
Focus on positive
As it is the best way to start as I’m concerned, make sure that your meditation centers on positive things.
As long as you are thinking about positive things in your life.
Also thinking about what you want in the future that is a awesome start, you can allow your meditation to bring you closer to achieving those goals.
In other words, you can use meditation to help you achieve the things you want.
Meditation in and of itself doesn’t necessarily make these desires manifest as reality any more quickly than they would otherwise.
However, regular meditation does get you in tune with your feelings. That is vitally important when it comes to manifesting the things you want out of life.
That is why it is so important to meditate on a regular basis in order to allow the energy to flow through your life. Helps your mental strength, lets you deal with everyday issues .
Meditation comes from the latin root “meditatum”, which means “to ponder”.
It is practiced in cultures all over the world.

Meditation is now commonly used to treat mental health disorders, addiction, and everyday stress, as well as to heal physical ailments and promote better sleep.
If you are just starting out, I recommend you meditate for anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes every day.
You can start with even less. Maybe try it for 1 minute in the morning.
When you can sit still and relax for that long, move to 2 minutes then 3 and so on.
Consistency is the key here to achieving the desired outcome.
The benefits don’t end when your meditation session ends.
Meditation will help carry you more calmly through your entire day.
