Falling asleep …
« on: October 11, 2020, 10:59:12 PM »
Hi,
I am new here and new to meditation, so apologies if this has already been discussed:


I’m a ‘Waking Up’ app. user (… and hence meditator) since July this year, and things are going well, except … my schedule means I have to meditate quite late (just before bed).

I am constantly battling with either repeatedly falling asleep and suddenly catching myself … or repeatedly hitting this hypnagogic, short-lived dream-like state … and catching myself. I really feel like this is impeding my progress. Any advice from more seasoned meditators?

G.

If possible do mediation first thing in the morning. If you aren't able to do that what you are doing is also fine. Sleepiness and all that it's part of the process. Keep doing.
