Find A Time

There is no “right” or “wrong” time of day to do your Chair Time. Pick a time that works best for you and write it down in your calendar. If you view your time spent alone with God as an appointment, you’ll be less likely to forget or skip it. Decide how long you plan to spend doing your Chair Time each day. 15 minutes is a great place to start, but you may desire to increase to 30 minutes or an hour later on. Consistency is key, so start with a manageable time frame.
