Benefits of Meditation for Fitness
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 for fitness 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.
