Do you meditate?
How often do you meditate?

I try to meditate my way out of anxiety all the time. I've become quite good at it.

I don't because I don't know how to and my brain is too crazy to shut up for a few minutes.

I'm the same pointup

I'd like to get into it, but it's basically impossible before I start thinking of all of the necessary things lined up that I have to do.

I will say that doing the dishes is rather meditative for me lol Same with doing math problems. It wasn't when I first started, but now that I'm fairly good at it, I can do hundreds of problems and the hours just fly by. I'm hoping Computer Programming will be the same eventually, but currently I want to chuck all of the computers in our apartment off the balcony, light them on fire, and dance around them like some sort of Pagan heathen.

If I can actually get myself to start cleaning, that's pretty calming for me. But my brain is still going a mile a minute thinking about what order I should clean what and where.

I do every day before I start work and for a few other things, have done for many years. Helps with my concentration immensely.
I don't buy into the spirituality mumbo jumbo surrounding meditation though.
Also this reminds me I should probably reply to Keyser's inbox about it. Woopsie daisy. die

I dated this neo-hippy chick in the early 90’ who was all into meditation and new age philosophy. I could never relax enough to enjoy or benefit from any of it, being that I am wound too tight and don’t trust anyone enough to be drifting off into another dimension with them.

I have a meditation app on my phone but the two times I've used it, I've woken up a couple of hours later so I'm not sure it really mixes well with fatigue!

I feel like I'd probably just end up taking a nap.
