Good stuff James. I got into it to change my relationship with stress.

I find this technique particularly good when I'm feeling stressed:
https://www.psychologytod...-s-relaxation-response

This book got me into a consistent mediation habit: 10% Happier: https://www.amazon.co.uk/...cp_apa_i_ErYoCbRQS54G5

It's not a "how to" book. It's about a stressed, workaholic, skeptic news anchor who got into after having a panic attack live on air.

I'm already so much better with stress than I used to be. I sorted this out following illness 2 years ago. I've never had panic attacks either: I just got stressed and dealt with it!
 
My main motivations are to both focus and to more easily acknowledge what's real and what's not real.

Still not convinced. I can't see how sitting still and thinking of nothing for half an hour is beneficial. Must be some sort of placebo.


Hi AW
 
1) it's not half an hour - I'm doing 2 x 6 mins, and the most I'll ever do is 2 x 10 mins
2) have a read on basic brain physiology and what the left and right side do; you'll learn that certain things are real and logical, other things are fictions. You can learn to acknowledge that they are separate and accept that, while we need fictions, you should not get upset by them
3) There's nothing magical so the concept of placebo doesn't come in to it; it's physiology
 
Wes has explained it really well

I'm meditating for 6 mins twice per day. 


Hi James, do you have a set routine for meditation?  I need to pin myself down and make it part of everyday life but I'm struggling to find the right/best time to do it.

I'm still fairly new to it. I will do one session first thing in the morning, and one evening - maybe before sleep, but maybe earlier.
 
I've had a really bad case of man-flu this week, so I've missed 2 sessions; these are the first I've ever missed.

Thanks.  I'm convinced I need to start getting up that bit earlier to do it
