One good side effect of meditating twice a day for twenty minutes is that you end up not wasting those 40 minutes every day on some other bullshit thing that is far less important, like looking at social media.

It sounds like a lot 40 minutes, but I’ve not felt it as a burden since I started. In fact, I think it makes you value and use all the other minutes of your day so much better that in the end the “actual value” is probably much higher than a mere 40 minutes of quietly listening to whatever’s going on inside.
