Finding the time

Back in my youth I used to meditate on a regular basis, back then I had more time and more silence.

My mind is always on the go, very difficult to calm it down, I know that in time and with practice I will yet again tame the beast when it comes to meditation.

These days I work full time and I have my eldest son who is 9 living with me.
The building where I live has its noises and the neighbours aren't exactly quiet.
From other people in a similar situation to me, where do you find the time or peace to meditate or work on your spiritual development?

I am moving house in the next couple of months, should I just wait until then or is there anything I can do now to help myself despite the situation?

Love to all.

While it might be difficult at first give this a try. When you settle down to meditate and right before you start welcome your noisy neighbors and from the heart. It's kind of like how Yongey explains how he dealt with panic attacks when he first started meditating. He eventually decided to welcome his panic attacks and they became his friend, his teacher and support for his practice. That's in the first 15 minutes of the YT video.

Barring that have you ever tried sound meditation? I usually use Tibetan Singing Bowl YouTube tracks I have in a playlist, but it occurs to me you can use your noisy neighbors instead. And if they're not making noise meditate on the silence.
