Welcome Margarida! What a beautiful name you have I have practiced meditation without invoking any kind of religious connotation, just a deeper introspection to myself. It is very calming and peaceful. Good luck!

Hello Margarida to the Snowboard Skiing team! Are you a snowboarder or skier or both?
I think you sent your message at the right time! I am starting a yoga/meditation/breathing class this week- it is not religion oriented. I too am learning to face these items and are recognizing my emotional eating triggers? Have you read 'Eat Pray Love'? I am just starting it (on the Fierce Fabulous Spark Warriors Team) and I think that it is relevant to the spirituality you speak of.
Good luck on your journey!

What a great day this is!! This website is definitely working as powerful spark in my life today! I am Margarida, a 33 year old Portuguese, living in Barcelona, Spain. This year I've been dieting on and off, every single month, only to get myself 5 more kgs. At least I know why...I'm an emotional eater. I have probably read only too much about overcoming it, about controling my thoughts, but I've realized my problem lies in turning thoughts into action. I can go from increadibly lazy to extremely active depending on my emotions. I need to learn how to control my mind and my thoughts, and for that I do know meditation could really help me a big deal. I am trying to introduce some meditation ritual into my life, but I don't find anything appealing enough for me. Maybe, because I am a fully convicted agnostic, with no intention to give up on her (dis)beliefs. Is anyone out there who has recently engaged in meditation without having any religious beliefs?
Thank you for this surge of hope you make me feel, just for being here!:)
Wishing you all the best from sunny Barcelona! Margarida
