What is the best way to practice meditation?
It seems like 5 min a day isn't enough, should I try to keep pace all day?
Depends on your religion. Some people just sit around going like ohm... ohm...
I don't get how that works, but you should meditate over prayer and reading the book of your religion.
I would try doing it longer and maybe twice a day. Once in morning to start and then once at night to rewind. Play around with it and see what fits best for you.
Try this very simple, yet powerful meditation in the article 'Effortless Meditation' at http://www.awaken2life.org/published-articles/74-effortless-meditation.html
It can be done for a couple minutes or an hour.
Also of possible interest is a 15-minute audio podcast episode called 'The Art of Meditation' (ep. 6) at http://www.awaken2life.org/podcast-more-oom.html but you would need to register first to get access to these older episodes.
