Just curious, how many people here actively meditate?

Tried it...kept dozing off.  I"m one of those people that goes to sleep when he slows down like that.  I find that doing a non-thinking strenious activity (walking, biking, fencing, stalking someone in the woods with an airsoft rifle...er...forget that part) is what clears my head the best.

I've got a self-hypnotising method (basically the same thing as meditating) that I use if I have a long subway ride to wait through, or if I've got too many thoughts in my head and I need to clear my mind before going to sleep.  For stress I'd much rather play a FPS with the sound way too loud.

Do share pug, I try meditation but have a hard time quieting my mind.

I used to do a fair amount in aikido training.  At one point I tried to really do it every day (or at least several times a week).  We trained in both meditation and breathing exercises.  I actually found the breathing to be more beneficial and relaxing than the meditation.

I used to do this when I was younger, but kind of stopped doing it for a long time.  This is one of many things I regret stopping.

Can't concentrate on it. I get distracted and just move on. Would like to be proficient at it though, I need the focus. I really need to start studying Zen again, that shit was brilliant for getting your mind wrapped around some concepts that helped you focus.
