Hello. I'm Deb, and I'm turning to meditation as a way to keep myself from (literally) going insane. I have been going through horrendous life-altering stressful events for 7 years now, and I've reached my saturation point. I just went through the thing that was "the last straw," that almost sent me completely over the edge. I cannot stop thinking about it and being angry about it, and I want to learn to channel that anger into positive activities.

I'm starting a movement and organization to combat just the type of abuse I and my loved ones have suffered, which is a start, but on a minute-to-minute basis, I find myself having to make myself breathe and calm myself.

So here I am, and I hope to learn as much as possible so as not to let this evil person destroy my peace. I'm in a good place in all other aspects of my life right now, but I can't take advantage of the good things until I can control these horrible feelings.





Do what makes you happy. Don't try to conform to what others think you should be.

My name is Kristen. Ever since I read the book "The Power" I have been drawn to meditation and visualization. I started meditating 5 minutes a day and now I am up to 15 minutes. I meditate after my workout when my body is relieved of some of it's restless energy. I am becoming increasingly conscious of holistic health vs. weight loss. I have a goal so losing 50 pounds but not at the cost of wellness. I am a vegan and I have never felt better as every calorie is packed with nutrition since I started eating nutritarian. I am in a pretty aggressive workout program...Beach body's Insanity and I love it. I am working on my second Masters so I have to sit to do my homework for long hours but I feel good about my recent diet change. Since last Summer I have moved from 215 to 193 due to vegetarian eating and a physical job. I am not working now but I have lost about 7 pounds since I started Insanity putting me at 186. Anyway, that's me. I look forward to getting to know all of you!

Hello everyone, I'm Minnie. Over the past 3 years I have discovered some of the wonderful benefits of meditation through Kundalini Yoga. I hope to learn more about meditation and mindfulness and get to know like-minded people :)

Hi everyone. I have been on SP for awhile, but lately I seem to be spinning my wheels. I have decided that I need to spend more time on being grateful for what I have and learning more about meditation and mindfulness. I have a tiny Montessori school in Costa Rica and as a perfectionist I run myself ragged. I want to be better at "letting go" emoticon

I am looking forward to putting into practice your ideas and suggestions.

Hello all. I'm so happy to have found you! Meditation and my daily practice have made a difference in my life over the last 10 years. Even with nutrition, I have found that I can take advantage of that small moment between desire and action to make a mindful decision. In response to Baltic Goddess...one of my favorites to read is Pema Chodron...there are so many!

Hello, everyone! It's nice to meet you all!

Over the past year or so, I've grown an interest in mindfulness and meditation. I've downloaded a couple of apps on my phone, checked out a library book or two, visited a Buddhist Temple a few times - but I've just not found the motivation to really commit myself to learning and practicing.

I know how beneficial mindfulness and meditation would be for me, I just need to make a commitment - even if it's only a few minutes per day.

Does anyone have any suggestions on some good books, websites, apps, etc.?

Thanks, everyone!

Hi everyone! I've been on SparkPeople for a few years, but haven't had much luck lately with keeping on a plan. I've decided to try a new approach, and explore the mind-body connection and concentrate on health instead of counting calories, etc. I'm excited to start exploring yoga and meditation. I feel I've learned plenty about nutrition and diets, but it's the mental aspect of a healthy lifestyle where I need the most work. I thought this group seemed like a good place to learn. :)

Hello everyone, I'm Hattie. I look forward to getting to know you all. I'm in my late 40s, married to my high school sweetheart, we have three grown boys, a 12 year old girl and two dogs. I was diagnosed with Lupus about 20 years ago and deal with chronic pain, fatigue and depression. Meditation helps me handle it all.

Hi, Betty here was checking in with my teams and was happy to find this team. Several months ago I underwent surgery and started to do restorative yoga pre-op to calm mind, body and soul. I loved the deep breathing exercises, clearing my lungs and feeling the breath go in and out. I have attended a few Gong Baths and Yoga Scents & Sounds classes also. I don't have the mediation down, but am trying.

Hi I'm Michelle from the UK & wanted to thank everyone for their warm welcome to the forum. I have recently started with the Headspace mindfulness meditation program in the hope that I can become better balanced and happened across this forum quite by accident and thought what a great place to pick up tips and encourage positivity.

Annemaria6, I hope you find the peace you need to help get you and your husband through this difficult patch. Take care & just remember to keep taking your time out to calm the spirit.

Hi! I am new to your team, but not to Spark people.
I am looking for a way to decrease stress and be calm and peaceful during a rough patch for my husband of 45 years and myself. He is dealing with an aggressive form of prostate cancer and treatment options are limited and slow to start. My plan includes walking, being outside for 30 minutes daily and meditating or yoga or Tai Chi daily. I am hoping that joining this team will help.me face the future with grace and dignity.

You will get where you want to go as long as you take more steps in the right direction than the wrong one.

Hey there everyone, I'm Roxy! Looking to get back into my health, fitness, and spiritual practices for a more well-rounded life. Mindfulness is so high on that list (and it's a huge part of my recovery), so, here I am!
Hope everyone is doing well! Blessed be. emoticon

Hi there Amity, sending a warm welcome. Great going with the yoga. I also do a daily meditation/mindfulness practice. I just feel myself sink down into it when the time comes.

Happy to have you with us.

Hello. I am a student living in the UK. I have been practicing yoga for about a year now and find it has improved my life in so many ways (and made me want to help others in their lives also). I am now trying to extend this to include a daily 10 minute mediation/mindfulness exercise and hoping April will be the month where I can build the habit :)

Great to meet you all!

Hi, I'm Bri. I'm a yoga and Tai-Chi lover, learning to meditate, and on a spiritual journey to discover the path of Buddhism. I hope to make some friends.
One action can change the world. One smile can change a persons day, and the chain begis there.
Namaste.

I am a flower lover! Gaillardia is a good flower to plant in poor soil and deer don't like to eat it. Happy spring every one! I think we're on Spark People to loose those extra pounds and to firm our muscles up a bit. It is nice to find some solace while jumping through the hurdles. The quotes on the team posts are encouraging to read.

Hi, folks!

My name is Sue. I've been feeling a bit down lately so I thought it would be wise to surround myself with people who want peace in their lives. Looking forward to getting to know you all!
