    I don't think I really need this because after doing almost 10 mile a day walks for a month even though I was technically being dragged to do it I have noticed that my energy levels have skyrocketed and now that I have no one pushing me even though I am drastically more energetic than before I feel it's slowly going away so hopefully this is a way to retain it and move to the next level

    Meditation is all about becoming indifferent to your thoughts, disconnecting yourself from the "now" so that you can achieve mental calmness. I like to choose the opposite approach, you let your mind race as if you're sprinting for your life. Think of everything all in rapid succession. This drains the temporary stores of dopamine in the brain and gives you the ability to simply relax your mind as if you've been holding a huge weight that you finally get to drop after holding it for far to long.

    So improvement pill, I meditate for thirty minutes a day fifteen in the morning and fifteen at night. I am curious as to what role music plays in the process. Whenever I listen to music my mind wanders a lot. Is this counteracting the mindfulness that meditation gives me, and if so should I stop listening to music?

    meh, do not meditate for a purpose, do it just because you want to.... like breathing...if you're too attached to the result of it than you will miss the essence of it...

  • Anthony Lee
    Anthony Lee 18 days ago

    Just tried meditating for five minutes (plus 20 seconds to fix myself into the correct position) after watching this video; going to start doing it each day for five minutes upon waking up. Was actually really difficult, as I had a little trouble sitting comfortably and breathing deeply simultaneously, and as you said, my thoughts kept drifting, usually to unpleasant subjects (which is actually part of the reason I want to start meditating).

    Gonna keep at it; wish me luck!

    I found that in addition to meditating, it is important to constantly (or at least consistently) monitor your thoughts while you are thinking, and choose positive and neutral thoughts, while eliminating negative ones.

  • Rich Piñata
    Rich Piñata 25 days ago +2

    After almost a year of meditating one hour everyday, I've learned:
    *Meditation is the best way to stop an addiction. Personally it's mindlessly browsing YouTube and watching Porn. I've learned that it's just random thoughts in different shape controlling you, trying to convince you. If you meditate long enough you'll notice that urges come and go. And the longer you sit through this hell of thoughts, the less the urge becomes. Which brings me to the next point on productivity:
    *You can't focus if you think about your addictions all the time. Obviously. You won't be affected by them if you don't give in for a few days. That's why I meditate everytime I feel the urge creep up, so I can process it. So boost your focus by doing nothing for long periods of time, instead of feeding your mind with impulses.
    I'll visit a Vipassana retreat in August. I'll try to sit through the full 10 days, and share my insights.
    I'm on my way to a more productive life, by removing the nonsense with meditation as a tool. I highly encourage you to do the same.

    Can you listen to peaceful music to mediate and successfully do this? I'm wondering because I can play a peaceful youtube video and leave it on for 10 or 20 minutes. When the music is done playing I know that the time is up. So the music helps me relax but also works as an alarm.

  • KA Boozle
    KA Boozle 1 month ago

    I am just starting but here's a tip that I have found helpful to keep your attention focused on the breathing: make a vowel sound in your head (you don't have to say it out loud but it helps in the beginning). On the inhale I say "oooohm" in my head and on the exhale "raaaah". The theory is that because vowel sounds kinda sound like white noise they make it easier to stay focused because white noise tends to drown out other thoughts (and sounds).

    What do you think about meditating under effects of cannabis? I have never meditated in my life but I think it was kinda similar when I was high. I was thinking a lot about breathing and heart beat.

    What I do for the itches and other sensations to fidget is to tell myself "I don't feel this when I'm not meditating, so why would I feel it now?". Seems to help and once you reach the deep meditation/ sleep paralysis state you won't feel anything anyway.

      No,I mean in the meditative position, just if it's ok that you are sitting on something soft and your feet are drawn a bit inside the bed while there's a difference when you meditate on the ground that this doesnt happen. Is that ok? like the same thing? and thank you
