I’ve been seeing a lot of links to meditation (Amazon link) how-tos and articles in del.icio.us but I haven’t read them until now. I’m thinking of trying meditation to release stress (my current stress buster is table tennis) and clear my mind.
Discovery Health says “meditation is the perfect antidote for the constant intrusion of technology in our lives. In fact, recent research has shown that meditating twice per day for about 20 minutes can actually reduce blockages in your blood vessels, significantly lowering the risk of sudden death by heart attack or stroke.”
One of the tips is to recite a mantra. Maybe I should recite one of the phrases in Gerbil Mantras by Joecartoon.com–“eeeeeeeeeeaaaaatttttt shhhhiiiiiiiiit annddd ddddddddie.”
