What's The Best Time to Meditate?
"The more regularly and the more deeply you meditate, the sooner you will find yourself acting always from a center of peace."
– J. Donald Walters
We have always been told, "There is no right time; just go for it when you feel right,"; but is it so when it comes to meditation for a peaceful living? Is there a good or a bad time to meditate? Or how do you take out time for meditation when you're already occupied and exhausted from your daily routine?
Well, to cut it short, you can meditate any time you want, depending upon what you are seeking out of meditation. However, Morning 4 and Evening 4 are considered to be more auspicious timings for meditation.
As per the Indian tradition, the Brahma Muhurta, which is around 1.5 hours before the sunrise, is considered to be the ideal time to meditate. Meditating at this time is easier and is supported by the calmness and peacefulness of the early morning. You wouldn't be having phone calls, busy roads, doorbells, or anything at all disturbing your serenity.
It is advised to practice meditation at the same time every day. This conditions the mind and the body to relax at the same time every day, making it easier to begin with the process of meditating. It brings a balance to your life and makes it easier to incorporate meditation into your daily routine.
You should also consider meditating with an empty stomach. Both Yoga and Meditation should be performed at least 4 hours post a meal. A bowel movement before meditating will help you focus and concentrate better.
