MEDITATION and boosting immunity

Just reading Good Housekeeping magazine for November, and there is an article there about some USA scientific research which says that regular meditation and walking may boost winter health.

I find walking any distance difficult as when I get short of breath I panic, so I am digging out my old meditation CD and giving it a try. You tube have meditation videos too.

  • I say a lot for meditation, given peaceful surroundings and quiet. Just to clea the mind and drift. Can do much this morning, as a mouse has got in for the second time, and is prowling around. A dopey cat is watching but doesn't seem to be able to handle the situation. Catcher is coming tomorrow am to sort mouse out.

  • Try You Tube for yoga, there are lots of videos and 'how to's. .

  • Yes, also practised yoga in the past. Now find that gentle stretching and being aware of posture can be good. I'm with you knitter - get very breathless on walking though always enjoyed doing this. Except I don't think I'm breathless due to panic, just feel it's down to the physical state of my lungs and my limbs not getting enough oxygen to power things along. Lovelight x

  • Meditate, now there's a thought. I try to have ten minutes quiet to myself in bed at night.


  • Why not try some chair exercises before your meditation. Any form of movement or exercise will introduce more oxygen to the muscles and tone them up. I don't exactly meditate but me family know what I mean when I say that I am going to have "Me" time. I incorperate breathing control into my relaxation routine and just generally have time to myself.
