Meditation

Meditation is great. If it’s your thing, there is some research on the benefits here, here, here and here.

Life is too busy to relax. Right?..

Naaaaaaaaaaaahhhh.

You can be the eye of your storm.
Calm amongst the chaos.

Things you DON’T need to meditate:
– time
– bird noises
– the ability to sit cross legged

(you can skip this paragraph if you want, I’m just talking about myself. The meditation is below)

I’m an acupuncturist in the CBD of Brisbane City. Lots of my patients are stressed out. I find that no matter what I’m treating, less stress equals better results. Acupuncture is good for this, but I’ve wanted to give my patients something they can work with themselves long term. So I decided to start teaching them to meditate. I’ve been meditating myself for nearly half my life, it’s a part of who I am. But when I thought about my own day to day meditation practice and how to pass that on I realized that most of the time I’m meditating at totally random times in the day as the need arises at the same time as doing everything else. When I started I was sitting for hours at a time, but I seem to have become more economical. My point is, after years of trying different things it is my opinion that you don’t need to do long intense meditation to get the benefits. But you do need practice, and a good attitude.

I found this video recently. It is exactly what I wanted to say, said better than I possibly could. Watch it and learn.
