    I was curious to get others thoughts on this question. I have been incorporating box breathing into my 15-minute vipassana meditations. Is this recommended, or is it more beneficial to separate your meditations and box breathing sessions?

    Great Job James! Box breathing is great anytime! I do it in traffic, planes, waiting rooms and yes before I meditate. I like to take my box breathing to relax a bit while visualizing my day turning out perfectly. I then head into my meditation for about 10 minutes each morning. The whole thing takes about 15 minutes. This is just what works for me. There are no right or wrong answers here.

    As a Firefighter/Paramedic for a relatively busy system I start my morning off with box breathing for 5 minutes or so leading into a 10 minute meditation on whatever grabs me. This gets the day off on the right foot. At various times throughout the day I’ll box breathe and do a quick meditative pause to keep everything crisp and clear. It works great and is almost to the point of unconscious competence for me. Divine anchored this process for me about a year ago and it has payed off.

    There is an excellent app I use on my phone called Pranayama. It guides you through various levels of box breathing. It was introduced to me by Coach Mark back in 2012-2013. I use it twice a day. Once in the morning to help set up my day. The program has a sleep session as well, which I use to calm down before bed.
