When to Change Your Meditation Routine
When your regular meditation schedule no longer is convenient to slip into, change it. That is a better choice than giving up that meditation period.
The standard meditation times are dawn, before lunch, before dinner, before bedtime.
If that has also been your routine, maybe a change of time will get you to stick to meditating regularly. The main point is to meditate sometime. The timing of your session is secondary.
Ask yourself what the ideal time slot is that you can stick to. To help get established, write out your intention to meditate in your daily journal in the part that is your to-do list. I make the left-hand side of the page my to-do items, and record the reality of what I do on the right-hand side. Then you can go back after a few days and look to see if you are comfortably squeezing in your new meditation time.
Meditation is meant as an aid to recovering and establishing peace and harmony in your life. If you put off this time, then you're missing an opportunity to build on the peace that you could be feeling.
Meditation time in itself opens your inner doors of brilliance and creativity, a means of letting joy seep into your conscious mind. And when you are feeling joyful in meditation, it bubbles over and flows into the regular aspects of your waking life.
Experiment with various times when you are looking for a new routine. Give each a trial period and then select what works for you. If you have been used to meditating with alone, try group meditation. I love the group energy, I feel myself part of a large worldwide family.
You could meditate with our cyber group meditation described in this article: click here to read about it.
Above all, stick with your meditation practice until it becomes part of the ebb and flow of your existence, its benefits ever with you.
