I am going to clarify about how long to meditate; in my opinion, meditate as long as you want. If you only have ten minutes, I still say, that’s better than nothing. If you prefer an hour, do it. The main thing is to be concentrative, focused, intentional, non-distracted and non-multi-tasking as possible. Don’t use the time to ruminate about all the things you didn’t do or should be doing instead of meditating. Don’t use meditation as a beat up time, punishing “time out,” or great escape (like, not showing up for work on time). If ideas and inspirations come, welcome them. If you are afraid you will forget them, jot them down on paper or a pad. Meditate with a sense of purpose and common sense. Lighten up about it!
