Finding the Time

Andy Puddicombe | 1:23


Finding time to meditate, I think is a problem for all of us. Right? It's life is busy, we have lots of things to do lots of commitments, lots of responsibilities. But bottom line and finding 10 minutes in the day if we there's an old kind of saying that if you can't find 10 minutes in the day to meditate, you probably need 20 minutes.

You know, if I life is so kind of hectic that we can't even find 10 minutes in the day, and what value are we putting on our mind? So our mind that we depend upon for every single interaction in our life matter with ourselves with other people with the world around us? If we can't give 10 minutes to that? Are we living a life that we're really kind of happy and content with? We might want to think about okay, well, can I somehow create that 10 minutes?

For me it was kind of chunk it up a little bit earlier. So now with with a baby in the house, I have no choice. If I want to meditate, I have to get up a little bit earlier and people say yeah, but I couldn't manage on any less sleep. 

But actually the quality of rest in the body and the mind that we get from meditation is really a lot more especially in that latest stage of sleep when we're kind of a bit dozy in the morning is far more effective, so much better to get up 15 minutes earlier, and create that 10 minutes than not to do any meditation at all.
