How Long to Meditate a Day?

So if you are a beginner in meditation it will be really hard for you to sit like hours in meditation. What I suggest that you should start with some basic requirements of meditation. For initial first 10 days just do Pranayam/Breathing Exercises to purify the internal system of your body. I know it is difficult to even practice breathing exercise and it may be intense as many emotions may come up during the breathing exercises.

So, in the very beginning you just start with Anulom-Vilom pranayam as its most simplest breathing exercise. For question how long to meditate a day, I would like to say that you should start with some Pranayam and after Pranayam just sit in silence with closed eyes. It will be easy to start with.

How Long to Meditate Everyday?

I would like to say that you should start with 20 Minutes of meditation everyday as it will make you little comfortable with the internal and outer system. For example you can practice Pranayam/Breathing exercise for 10 minutes and then for 10 minutes you can just sit in silence. If you can start like that, it will help to grow your consciousness and awareness about your own being. When you become little comfortable then try to increase 10 minutes every week. So, start with 10 minutes of meditation everyday.
