May I Be.....meditating!

Hi guys! My new favorate stress reliver is....drum roll...meditating! Its not totally new to me, I have been (attempting to) meditate for a year or so, but I always had trouble staying on task, or focused (seems to be a recuring problem! lol). I did do the whole exhaling and saying something positive, so just maybe my subconcious will start to believe that I'm "fearless" or "focused" or "happy". Still, it only helped my concentration a little. So I was extatic when I read Fitness Mag a few days ago (old issue, just missed it the first 20 times I read it! lol) to relax by exhaling and saying May I Be...healthy, happy, focused, fearless, calm, relaxed, positive, etc. I tried it! And it works like a charm! Its so much easier to stay focused on the breathing, and I get to that dizzy, in my head, out of body kinda feeling after a few mins! Not like 15mins, which I could never actually do before! Give it a try, anytime you need a calming boost (studys show it can actually make you smarter, and help improve your focus in other areas of your life!) Just try this for a few mins! Let me know how it works for you!
