the power of...



Never underestimate the power of a good meditation session.

One of my goals for 2010 is to lose the Freshman 15 that I somehow managed to gain in my sophomore year. I'll chalk it up to it being my first year away from home ;)

Sorry, straying from the point...

Anywho, upon finding myself alone at home this Friday night, I decided to work-out at home. A pilates/cardio session, followed by strength training left me feeling empowered but also hot and sweaty. In order to cool myself down, I put on some great meditating music and sat my butt down in my room, closed my eyes, and focused my mind on the awesomeness of God.

Then after an excruciating 5 minutes (due to my lack of self-discipline and my twitter-trained attention span) I began to stretch out my legs and core when sitting still became, well, boring.

However the music was playing the whole time and I now sit on the couch, not sweaty, well stretched and perfectly relaxed. It seems as if my mind hath dipped itself into a cold refreshing pool and resurfaced feeling alive again.

Ahhhh....

I am more relaxed now than I have been in months. I really must commit to doing this more often :)
