Fitness Tip - Meditation

Meditation? How will this make you feel more fit? Why do I want to bring up what my mom calls navel gazing? Well for at least 4000 years people have been using meditation to center the concentration. There are other credited benefits as well. Many feel that the act of meditation lowers your metabolism to give you greater than sleep type rest. Improvement in the immune system and improved sense of well being are also reported by regular meditation practitioners.

Going through Deepak Chopra or Wayne Dyer’s work as well as many others you will find a very simple way to meditate that stays away from expensive training although getting a couple books would not hurt anyway.

The first step to meditation is to sit in a quiet place preferably on the floor with your back up against a wall. To meditate all you need to do is close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing. You can focus on your breathing coming in through your nose and down to your abdomen and then coming up and out of your mouth. This is a very simple method and should be done for 15-30 minutes twice a day, morning and night.

There are several books that will help you in studying meditation. Also you can go to several websites to learn more. as well as learning are great resources.
