I think that, though it is difficult outside of a monastery, one should seek to recite the hours of the Divine Office at regular intervals (eg, every three hours). What sense does it make to have recited six of the hours by 1.45 or 3pm, only to wait 8 or 9pm for the last? The recitation of Vespers at 5 or 6pm seems much more reasonable to me.
