Meditation tips | What’s the best time to meditate?

I think we're all very different you

know I I personally recommend that you

meditate first thing in the morning and

I tell you why some some advantages to

that but it's also really important to

recognize that we are all different that

we should be flexible it works for some


not for everyone and there is nothing

bad or worse about meditating later in

the day lunchtime or in the evening

there are just some very definite

benefits to doing it first thing in the

day number one you get rid of any kind

of grogginess from your sleep so you

really start the day feeling kind of

calm and clear and fresh I think that's

a it's just a nice way to begin the day

second one is if we start the day in

that way with our meditation we have

that much more likely to be mindful

throughout the day so it's almost like

we punctuate the day with that really

big kind of session of meditation then

it's like we have all these little

moments because we remember we set the

mind up to be aware throughout the day

as a was someone in the community who

wrote in quite a while back saying his

favorite thing about headspace s he

wasn't the meditation it was the fact

that when he meditated he made better

choices throughout the day so he would

go to when he started the day with

meditation he would go to the gym he

would be aware of what foods he was

eating so he'd make kind of better food

choices he was aware when he went into

conversations with people he was a

little bit kind of kind of a bit more

thoughtful when his in his interactions

so there's really something something

about that if we if we can begin the day

in that way it really sets us up for for

the entire sort of day ahead
