    My first experience with meditation was way back in 2008 when I did a course from Art of Living. I have been regularly practicing meditation. It has helped in improved focus, concentration and a sound sleep. I feel relaxed and at peace after meditating. It keeps my stress levels low.

    Yes! I have been meditating since late 2005. A friend invited me to her spiritual center. It focused on meditation. She no longer attends the center, but I still do. Meditation has helped me to develop a calmness, focus and clarity. Meditation has helped me to handle some really interesting challenges in my life. I get a lot of insight and great ideas while meditating too. I am very grateful to have developed a meditation practice.

    I meditate from time to time. It's a good way to relieve stress and to calm myself down after a long day. Sometimes I even use music on the background when I meditate and try to incorporate some deep breathing. I've heard that it can have a good impact on clear thinking and trains your brain to calm down and take control of difficult situations. As you say, meditation also helps me focus better and relax :)

    Usually a few times a week just to have clarity and better focus for the next move or the next big step with something. Having tranquility and silence can help you address important thoughts and develop answers when there are few or no outside distrctions. Whether you look at it from the spiritual or the mental empowerment aspect, it is good for you to do to help move forward with less stress and more certainty in life.

    In a word no. To be honest I've never really been into anything like that, and not only that, I very rarely have enough time in the day to do what I'm doing now, so stopping to meditate isn't an option.

    I have friends who own their own businesses that meditate, do yoga, attend self help groups, and I think...how do you find time to do all that and then get everything else done?

    Maybe I need to look at my time management skills?!

    I practice various kinds of meditation. I have tried Mindful Meditation, Transcendental Meditation, Guided Meditation, Zen Meditation etc. However, in my experience, the most powerful meditation technique is Mindful Meditation.

    I have not been actively trying to meditate. I have heard of all the wonderful benefits gained when practicing...I may try to put it in my routine. I sure need some way to alleviate stress in my hectic life.

    I don't really do serious meditation. Once in a while, whenever I feel stressed and depressed, I would just close my eyes, take deep breaths, and think happy/positive thoughts. It sure does work for me.

    Last year I was going through a tough time and used a well-known meditation app and it actually helped me calm down and change my perspective on many things. I fell out of it, now that you mention it I might use it again. I think meditation has many benefits.

    I have gone through some pretty tough times in my life, mostly personal matters, and I have found that meditation is a very helpful tool for organization when it comes to thoughts. I am not even sure that I was doing it correctly and using the right method or whatever, but even that and just having some time alone to think is really a positive experience that everyone should try.

    I used to have meditation sessions when I was training martial arts, several years ago. I'm thinking seriously to start yoga. I'm sure it will do me good, specially for reducing the stress caused by the daily routine.

    I have not meditated lately, but I do know the benefits of meditating. I try to walk every morning to start my day on the right foot. This helps wake me up and clear my mind. I use this time to mentally prepare for the day. However, when I walk, I think. Meditating, for me, is a reset button. It stops my thinking process long enough for me to breathe and re-center myself. It's hard to allow myself the time every day to meditate, since running a business is often all about the thinking process. I do think everyone should try it for a week and see what changes they notice within themselves and with their work.

    I can attest to that. I used to run every day until i injured my feet and ankles one too many times and I had the same experience. My mind was free to roam wherever it wanted to but the clarity of thought running at 5 am was really quite amazing. No distractions.
