Evening meditation is a great way to get a good night's rest. It also creates a clear boundary between your professional life and your personal one, so you can leave work behind at the end of the day and enjoy your family or time to yourself. This is especially helpful for those who suffer from insomnia or other sleep disorders. Practicing meditation every day gives you momentum and helps you become more relaxed after each session. If you miss a day, it is important to forgive yourself immediately and return to the practice as soon as possible.
Some people prefer to meditate in the morning, before the busyness of their day begins. If you choose to meditate in the morning, make sure you have a quiet place that is free of distractions. If you don’t have a private space, try listening to a guided meditation or using a calming app on your phone.
Other people find it easier to meditate in the evenings. This may be because they have more time to focus, as their work is finished for the day and family responsibilities are usually over by that point.
It’s also a good idea to set a timer when you meditate. It’s easy to sit and wait for the big idea to come to you, but setting a timer tells your mind (or God) that you are serious about finding an answer in a specific amount of time and encourages the ideas to show up sooner rather than later.
