Okay, the question might not have sounded how it should have. I am no expert in meditation, I just thought of this topic when I encountered a lot of insomniacs. So, siesta may not be suited for them to have a refreshing break in the afternoon, well, how about meditation? When I was in Hong Kong I was walking in a park (forgot the name) when I saw several people seated on the benches. A businessman and a lady jogger (on different parts of the park) meditated. They were breathing deep and controlled with their eyes closed. They seem statue-like with their positions. I was actually staring at them one at a time and was wondering if this meditation could help boost energy to face the busy day at work or at home. So, have you tried this? I am looking forward to hear from you. Could this be the solution for our insomniac friends? Happy mylotting! Cheers! Zorlone

Hello zorlone!!! Meditation is the very good thing to practice that keeps our mind in the right track. Meditation helps us to solve the various problems it done properly in a correct way. I don't really practice meditation but have some knowledge regarding. When I was small some 10 years ago, I was taken to the meditation center for about 3 days. That time I was a kid and couldn't really meditate nicely. But I remember how to to do them. The easiest meditation to do is to concentrate on the air coming in and out of your nose in a natural way like how long you are inhaling, what is the feeling, which part of your nose is being touched by the air and so on. This is called the anapanasati meditation which is the basic one. And still beyond this there are very touch and very much beneficial. I have to say meditation is the most powerful thing in the world. It is meditation through which Lord Buddha gained lot of knowledge regarding the truth. He meditated in such way that he was feeling the sensation in the cells of his body. With practice his meditation was that deep. Well there are lots of things about meditation that I can't mention them all here. I hope the above things help you to some extent. Keep mylotting...

HI there! Wow, the most comprehensive discussion I have seen so far about meditation. Cool! Too bad you don't practice meditation anymore. Well, maybe since you sound knowledgeable in a lot of things, meditation would make you very knowledgeable. Well, not that it's a bad thing, but that would have been so cool. hehehe. Thank you for the informative response. Cheers! Z

Hello zorlone!!! Well that was the response I posted 3 days ago. And yesterday I had just started a discussion about the meditation. You can check out from my profile. I don't know why since few days I am getting very much interested towards the meditation again and I meditated yesterday and today too. Yeah it was too bad that even if I know about the meditation I didn't keep it in practice. But now, I have to do it. Thanks for your suggestion. I should really go on with meditation and you too. In fact every one should.... Happy mylotting...

Like what the other mylotters said, meditation needs concentration. Don't worry, well get used doing it if we practice. Better yet if we get a coach. But that would be expensive, if a friend knows how to do it, then, that would be great. Thank you for dropping by. Z

Yes, meditation does boost our energy provided we are fully absorbed in it, leaving all the worldly concerns behind us. A comlete absorption in spiritual feelings can do wonders for us and we feel rejuvenated and energised to face the challenges and problems we are confronting with renewed vigour and energy.

I guess i do somesort of meditation...but for me it would be handling to much stress that would be the issue...And i figured it that somewhat works with trial and error type thing. And it is nope like it works for everytype situstions... So when this is an issue if and it seldom is...I don´t have to little energy i would have abit too much i think... But I can´t see why some sort of trial error thing might work the other way around...

meditation is a form of relaxation. what it do is it slows down your metabolism by deep breathing, slow inhalation and exhalation concentrating only on the positive thoughts you bring to your mind. it induces good blood circulation thus enhancing wellness over your whole body. it is like sleeping but you are awake and aware of your surroundings. it is also considered as a method of prayer where you concentrate on the divine to provide you strength on your everyday activities. Yes, i do meditate and it does bring very good energy.

I do a lot of sleeping... siestas and naps whenever I can. hehehe. But this form of relaxation, well, not so much. I try to meditate before I write and think of all the things I want to capture in my story or poem. It works for me. Somehow, all my ideas, hmm... most of them are captured in my work. Good discussion Z

I have heard that meditation do help in concentrating.But I don't have much idea about whether it will help you in combating insomnia.You must consult an expert,and confirm about the right postures and procedure that should be followed before meditating. I personally believe that Yoga will help you in boosting your confidence level. It also helps in losing some extra pounds. And helps in maintaining a very good health. I practice Yoga regularly. But I have never opted for meditation.

I believe meditation does boost energy. Have you ever sat down and totally focused on relaxing every muscle in your body and controlled your breathing? I do it several times a day, I always feel revived and energized afterward. I just try to relax as much as possible. Controlled breathing helps out allot. Even sitting in a swimming pool, just let your body float. Feel the water on your skin and listen to your heart beating. It is a great feeling.

This is good advice! I try to meditate even with just breathing slow and deep while concentrating to relax my body (I may not do it perfectly, but I try to). I think I feel revived. My body was relaxed and I feel that I have more energy stored. Plus, I was able to think of new ways in my writing. I like poetry so, meditation helps (even if I don't know how to do it properly hehehe) Thank you for the comment! Cheers!
