When to Meditate


Andy Puddicombe




Whether you’re new to meditation or you’ve been meditating for a while, the first step in setting yourself up to practice is finding a comfortable position.


I think we’re all very different, you know. I personally recommend that you meditate first thing in the morning, and I’ll tell you why, there are some advantages to that. But it’s also very important to recognize that we are all different, that we should be flexible, it works for some people, not for everyone, and there is nothing bad or worse about meditating later in the day, lunch time, 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 calm, and clear, and fresh, and it’s just a nice way to begin the day.
