Usually, the more time we can put into each meditation session the more we benefit, but for people brand new to meditation, even five minutes a day is a good place to start. For most people, twenty minutes a day twice a day is a realistic goal to fit into their lives, to get the “habit” started. Once a daily routine has been established though, you can try 25 minutes and then perhaps 30 minutes, gradually increasing to whatever is doable in your particular life circumstances.
