When people find out I’m a meditation teacher, one of the first questions they often ask me is, “How long should my meditation sessions be?”
Creating a practice of consistent meditation is important, so it’s critical that you set reasonable goals and try to meditate every day. So what is a “reasonable” goal, and how do you figure out how much sitting time you need to start seeing the benefits of meditation?
Ultimately, this is a question only you can answer because the “right” amount of meditation time varies widely from person to person.
I can give you a few guidelines you can use to set your own meditation goals, though, and give you some things to consider before making your decision.
