If I don’t put it on the schedule, it doesn’t happen. And the one thing I realized when I started meditating often while on retreat is that 1 hour of meditation isn’t that much longer than 15 minutes of meditation…but it is far more effective for clearing my mind.
If I’m going to do it every day, I may as well do it all the way. So I set the alarm early and get ready for a new day.
But hey, when I sleep in, fifteen minutes is better than none!
