Tired while meditating!

Hi all! When I get deep into a meditation at the end of the day, when I get home from work, I often find myself starting to nod off after 15-20 minutes! Are there any meditation techniques that could help me meditate longer without starting to fall asleep? Or maybe I just need to sleep better in general? :joy:

More sleep? set a timer for 10 minutes and gradually increase it if you stay awake for 10 minutes, meditate twice a day for 10 minutes, walking meditation?? Do you sit in a chair or on the floor? Can you meditate at a different time? Change things around a bit and see what works.

All that has ever worked for me and all can suggest is trying a different time of day for meditation especially longer ones. Personally, I never meditate in the evenings simply because I know I will nod off or at least really struggle with focus.
