I just started experimenting with meditation recently and found that it helps a lot with my ability to sleep. I am sure everyone would agree that sleep can make or break your day with FMS. For me it is a way to quiet what I heard refered to as the monkey mind. That term sounds right to me and it truly does help to shut that silly monkey up at bedtime. :)

I use a very simple technique: make yourself very comfortable and support with cushions, then just focus on watching your breath. any thoughts that come into your mind, just let them float away; deal with them later. breathe and, if there is any discomfort or pain, breathe into that area.

That is why they sometimes refer to it as one of the best things we can do for ourselves.

One of the presentations I have to give for my conference this summer deals with the benefits of meditation and how to do it properly. All the books I read mention paying attention to posture and, for folks with back injuries, maintaining a pelvic tilt when sitting.

For the last three weeks or so, whenever I find myself slouching or sitting forward because of pain I remind myself to adjust my position. I also take a few moments each day to simply breathe and concentrate on how that feels.

The difference is remarkable already --- less back pain, less tension in the pressure points, and a new feeling of well being. I strongly suggest looking into at least sitting meditation or monitoring your breath and posture. See if it helps where nothing else does.
