Breathing Room -My New Hobby: Meditation

An extra room has magically been added to your home overnight. The catch: if you add more than three items to it, it disappears. How do you use it?

Lately I’ve been enjoying meditation for at least 10-15 minutes a day, sometimes twice a day. On weekend I would meditate in the morning and late at night, I found that meditating in the morning and night prepares me better in doing day’s activities. Starting my day with meditation clears my mind and put things into perspectives, and at night to clear my mind for good night’s sleep.

So you could guess what I would put inside my new room, right? A carpet for me sitting in Yogi position, an iPod filled with my meditation playlist, and an air conditioner to keep the temperature cold.

I found my life to be happier and more organized since I started meditating earlier this year. At first I didn’t do it disciplinely, only once a week and of course the i couldn’t feel much difference. But the effect is huge in my spiritual life since I meditate everyday.

Try it, you might like it.

      Yes, and up to now I could testify it does work. I’ve been in a very busy and demanding cycle of med school, people are going crazy and I could have too if meditation didn’t put myself in bigger perspectives. Thank you for reading.

        What a wonderful way to clear your mind of the clutter that you must see each day, the eating, breathing and sleeping of med school. Your meditation room is perfect!

  5. I started meditating six years ago. I meditate every day, usually in the am. It helps me get my day started off right. It took me a while to learn to meditate properly but now I can sit and meditate for an hour or even longer, like nothing. It has truly changed my life and helps w my chronic pain, big time!

  6. Meditation is so important to help us clean out the gunk from our overly active minds. Keep at it!

    I’ve never tried meditating. Perhaps I should, considering how beneficial people find it.

    Meditating itself is doing nothing but breathing, feel the environment around you, be aware of the present, be aware of the air flow inside your lungs, be aware of the sound around you. The point of meditating is to be nowhere but where you are now. There’s a wonderful book that got me started meditating earlier this year titled “Wherever You Go, There You Are”, I have also the summary of the book in this blog, search for “key points, book, wherever you go, there you are”. Let me know if you need assistance 🙂
