Should I meditate before or after a workout?

When is the better time to meditate, before or after exercising?

1 Answer

Recently, I've started to meditate before working out. I'll meditate for a short time (6 to 10 minutes), but it seems to really be beneficial for clearing my head and somehow energizing me for my workout. I used to meditate after working out (after taking a shower), which seemed to be fine, but I think I prefer meditating before working out since my energy level is not as "pumped" up before working out and is in a much more calming state. After working out, I don't want to have to worry about meditating, instead I feel good that I'm done with my meditation and workout for the day. Although, I may try to add in an additional meditation before going to bed.

It seems like a lot of people are prone to meditate after working out, but I'd recommend you try both and see what feels more natural for you. Either way, you'll get a benefit out of meditating before or after, so just experiment and do what feels right for your body.
