I’m thinking about going jogging in the morning and I think of that as meditation of a sort. The days I don’t run, maybe I’ll try to sit outside for 5 minutes in the early morning and meditate. I’m mostly trying to calm my emotions down and not react so quickly to people’s attitudes and actions. And to not be so frustrated and to slow my mind down a bit. 1 week ago

It’s the first time I’m trying meditation. I know it’s hard to cotrol your mind so I will start real small.

I made a commitment to meditate twice a day in August of 2012 and my whole life has turned around. I am happier, more outgoing, I give more of my time to others and I like who I am becoming. It is truly a transformational activity that allows our true self to display itself to the world.
I practice centering prayer, which you can learn about at the Contemplative Outreach website.
And I recently started using an iPad/iPhone app that keeps track of my meditation times. It’s called Insight Timer. You can learn about it at this website
I’m sure there are many other ways to do this, but whatever method you use, you will be rewarded. This is definitely worth doing.
It is helpful if you have a group to support you in your practice, so check out local groups in your area.
