I've been thinking about meditation. I have no life as it is so why not try new things like this.

Longest I sit for is usually 45 mins but have done a longer before. Shorter practices are great and beneficial but you get that real sense of calm and peace the longer you sit for, and mindfulness spills more into your daily life when practice for longer periods, well thats what I find anyway.

Benefits, there a quite a few so I may miss some, but it helps mood obviously, I can either cut my thoughts off if i need to, or stay with them no matter how bad they are and remain in control and always see that they are just thoughts, not facts or reality. I can communicate better with people by being mindful when listening and talking, rather than thinnking about saying something stupid or embarrasing. I used to suffer from regular bouts of insomnia and took sleeping pills, now I dont - i just focus on breath for long enough and I'll fall asleep. Exercise, being a dad, eating better, a nicer person (generally :-) ), more organised at work and around the house, all sorts.


I never worked a day in my life, I just lay back and let the big beat lead me
