Exercising Body & Brain: MeditaCon
Image of page 2
MeditaCon Sit comfortably consciously relax all your muscles from the bo0om of your feet to the top of your head, and close your eyes. Adopt a calm, passive aJtude. Breathe slowly and deeply. Try not to think about all the things that are on your mind. Stop your “internal dialogue.” Stop thinking in words. Don’t make plans. Don’t recall memories. To help you stop thinking and to help you calm down, silently repeat a word or phrase to yourself. This is called a mantra . Make it a calming, posiCve mantra. You might choose the word, “peace” or the word, “love”. You might choose words that have religious significance for you such as “Shalom” or “One.” ‐Don’t be concerned when thoughts intrude, because they inevitably will. When this happens, simply say to yourself, “Oh well Self, relax.” Then keep saying your mantra.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
