I typically prefer to meditate before anyone else in my house is up …
… but sometimes I like to do it after they’re all awake.
In the former case, when it’s all quiet, obviously there are far fewer ‘interruptions’.
But in the latter case, when everyone is up, about, and doing their own thing – which, at any moment, might include me – there are near constant potential distractions.
The challenge in the latter case is not to see them as distractions or interruptions, but rather, to take them gently as they come, and then to continue with the meditation …
… as soon as there’s nothing else that requires your attention.
The trick here is that while meditation is important, it is never more important than your family.
