In the Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living, the Dalai Lama says that meditation is about seeing your “natural state of your consciousness”.
When asked about how long one should meditate his answer was “How busy are you? If you are not busy then there is no need to meditate for long periods. If you are busy then there is a need to meditate for long periods.
This is a very busy season. Take time to slow down and practice just slowing down. If you have a meditation practice, practice for longer periods and see what happens.
