Weblog Meditation

I woke up this morning at 6:10am and for some strange reason, I felt like doing sit-ups. I immediately climbed out of bed, hit the floor, and cranked out two sets of 30. Then for another unknown reason, possibly because I was breathing hard, I decided to sit and meditate.

I don’t really know much about meditation, but from what I’ve heard, read and experienced in my high school pyschology class, I was giving it my best shot. I sat and took deep breaths for about 15 min. It felt pretty good, and I do believe it got me focused enough to write this post.

i don't meditate often - but when i do i feel that it helps to chant the word 'om' (something my indian friends taught me). apparently 'om' is the sound the universe makes and by chanting 'om' you become more in tune with it. also chanting 'om' resonates in the head in such a way that it helps clear the mind. anyway - hope you find these tips and tidbits helpful in future mediation. that's my two cents.

thanks todd. i'm definitely going to attempt the meditation thing again. just 15 minutes of breathing and I was focused and full of energy for the next 48 hours. i hope it wasn't just a fluke or some outside cause. oh well...
