And did you knowmeditation doesn???t need any special exercise equipment, can be practised in thecomfort of your home, sitting in a beautiful park or even in your workspace whileyou take a 10 minute break.
Learning to meditate will take a little practise; after all you have probably liveda stressed life for a long time and maybe not even noticed how uptight you havelived. We are so would up if the elastic snapped we would keep spinning for a longtime, so think of that elastic connected to the organs on your body, your brain andhow much damage we are doing while the elastic is tightening and don???t even wantto imagine what would happen if the elastic snaps.Before we get to that point let???s talk about meditation for a minute. Meditationis simply when you sit or lie down, quiet your mind and just be, ah, sounds easyright? Well, not so for those of us who live the typical stressed life that we havecome to know, so learning to mediate will take a bit of practice, and you can do itbecause it???s just a few minutes a day.
First just to make time and sit will seem diff icult, b ut you can do it, next will beto sit and slowly let your mind quiet, the thoughts of the day and of the followingday will keep coming to mind…have to walk the dog, kids soccer sign up, oh forgotthat paper at work, and that???s ok, this is normal, but as time goes by you willjust acknowledge the thoughts and let them go without going deeper into thinkingabout them, eventually the thoughts will just be thoughts passing and eventuallystop as you prepare your mind and your brain and body knows this is meditation timeand that the thoughts that are just thoughts can wait.Yes, you can do it, if I learned anyone can, and I am a type A, with ADD, and Ilearned to meditate, in fact I needed to before I snapped.To help me meditate I used a guided meditation to keep me on track, it wasinvaluable so check out the meditation program I would recommend and see what youthink.
