How to read banis ?

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

It my summer holidays, and I've been doing some of my banis daily but not all 5. The problem is that I get many though when reading for example I get thoughts of bad stuff happening to my family and friends and I dont mean it but I get worried and stop reading my bani and say sorry to Waheguru, some times I get really bad thoughts of me saying bad stuff to the Guru, I dont mean this but it breaks my concentration and I say sorry to Guru Sahib Ji again. Should I be doing this ?

I want to read more banis but the thing is when these thoughts come into my head, it takes me much more to read my Japji Sahib in the morning, that I dont have time to read my other banis. Some times it takes me along time to read my Japji Sahib, that I get upset and sometimes cry because I really want to do my banis good.

I start Uni soon, so sometimes I wont be able to do Rehras Sahib and im kind of confused what to do, I used to listen to it on the train.

Currently I read my banis, and have a rough idea of the english meaning coming in my head and this requires me to do it at a slow pace. If I do it at a faster space I miss the meaning of certain parts, and feel guilty. So how should I be doing my banis ? or how do you do it ?

I feel more at peace when I slowly do Japji Sahib but then I run out of time to do other banis.

Should I slowly build up to do 5 banis daily ?

sorry for this long message, please forgive me if i said anything wrong or offensive.
