Consistency is the most important part of your Mendi practice. Mendi is an exercise for the brain, and should be treated as such. If you buy a treadmill to exercise your body and you use it five times a day, your body would probably be a bit shocked. But you can build up to your goals by listening to your body and having a consistent and patient practice. Mendi is the same way.
We recommend starting with 30 minutes per week (6 x 5min) for the first few weeks. After that you can gradually increase the amount of training if you wish. The training is natural so there is no real danger, but like any other exercise or activity you should probably aim for a healthy balance. If you feel overwhelmed or if you feel your body is reacting in any way that is telling you to slow down, we recommend that you reduce the amount of training. It’s your practice, and you know your schedule and stamina better than anyone. Keep in mind that consistency is more important than total time. And like a treadmill doesn’t make you a runner overnight, patience and attention to your Mendi practice is integral.
