I have been practicing meditation for six years and in my opinion I recommend the morning time for meditation. Especially a grounding meditation to align and balance you for your day ahead.
I would recommend you practice daily for at least 5-10 minutes a day and build it up to around 20-30 minutes.
If you have more space for meditation in the afternoon or evening then feel into when you feel as though you would like to rest into the practice and just go for it!
I invite you to not to be too hard on yourself as it takes time, it is like learning a new language. Be patient.
Let yourself enjoy the journey rather than it be a chore.
If you feel it is a chore then I recommend you find a practitioner to help guide you and help you maintain consistency.
