Do personal prayers to Hashem (hitbodedut) fulfill a mitzvah? It would be a great incentive for me to pray more.

    Is there any reason to believe this is separate from the general mitzvah of prayer? Feb 5 at 7:20

  • Another aspect of hitbodedut specifically, in contrast to hitbonenut, is that it is somewhat related to the mitzvah of maintaining proper health, physically, mentally and emotionally (think Mishneh Torah, Hilchot De'ot, Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, Siman 32 and elsewhere). Feb 5 at 14:50
