Meditation is proven to be great for our health – both mental and physical – and it’s a key component of spiritual practices across all of history. However, in today’s hectic modern world, it can be hard to find time for this ancient practice, no matter how beneficial it may be.
It’s easy to let your meditation fall by the wayside, but keeping it up doesn’t have to be a chore – it’s easy to find the time to practice, even in the busiest schedules.
Making Time to Meditate
The key to maintaining a steady meditation practice – the sort that you see real, long-term results from – is finding a reliable time to clear your mind and focus on meditating. It doesn’t need to be a long stretch – it doesn’t even need to be every day – but a reliable, consistent time for meditation helps you to get in the routine and creates a habit that can ensure you see great results.
A few ways to make sure you always find the time to practice mindfulness include:
Find a Few Minutes First Thing in the Morning or Last Thing at Night
When we wake up or before we go to sleep are great times to work in some meditation. We may want to start off the day right by focusing, spending a few minutes being mindful and ensuring our energy and willpower remains strong throughout the day; or to round our day off by allowing our thoughts and experiences to wash over us, finding peace so we may slip away into a deep, nourishing sleep more easily.
Either way, meditation is a fantastic “bookend” to your day. Making the time for reflection and meditation when you wake, or before bed, takes advantage of a few free minutes that can often wind up as “dead time”, and makes sure they don’t go to waste!
Use Breaks at Work
A fifteen-minute break at work might not seem like much, but with the Max Meditation System, it’s more than enough time to de-stress, clear your mind and return to work focused and centred. Meditation is proven to work wonders for stress, worry and concentration, so using it in a break from work can result in better performance and more professional success – and all with lower stress than ever!
Start Small and Increase from There
There’s no need to leap right in to meditating for hours – beginning with only a few minutes a day is the best way to set up a meditation routine that will never let you down. Once you’ve gotten into the habit of meditating, and begun to see the results, it will be easy to gradually increase the time spent meditating.
Meditation is like exercise for your brain, and over time, it increases the fitness of this most vital part of us: however, like exercise, it’s important not to try to go too hard, too fast. Take your time, start small and work reliably up to higher levels, and you will see beautiful and long-lasting results!
Maximise the Effectiveness of Your Meditation
For the best experience meditating, make sure to use the most effective meditation tools possible – the Modern Mystery School teaches the Max Meditation System, which can make sure that your meditation packs more punch in the same time frame. Synthesised from the ancient teachings of various cultures and schools, the Max Meditation System is specially designed to provide a deeper, more restorative and more powerful meditation than any other discipline.

By far the best way to develop a new skill is in a dedicated session, in the company of experienced teachers and with other students to help you. That’s why the Modern Mystery School offers a range of meditation sessions specifically tailored to the needs of our students – these regular sessions are held by our master teachers every week, so make sure you try one!
In addition to the Max Meditation System, we also hold sessions for Moon Meditation, Egyptian Meditation, and Sanctuary Meditations geared towards achieving connection with your higher self, bringing Light and Wisdom into your life in a way that is safe and immediate.
