I always finish up my meditation with doing a short Tai Chi form. Tai Chi is a moving meditation for me, but it also feels like a good transition back to regular life.

My powerwalks early in the morning is definitely a form of meditation for me. I've got some meditations uploaded to my IPod and listen to them as I go.

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

For me it depends on whether I work out in the morning or evening. If I am going to work out in the morning, I do the meditation first. I was advised by my meditation instructor on a program she called "RPM" (which stood for rise, pee, meditate). If you do meditation right off the bat in the morning, you're sure to get it in. Doing it first thing in the morning gets me refreshed and focused and then I can work out.

However, if I work out in the evening, I like to meditate afterwards to stop and feel the rush in my veins, the flow of energy, etc. and to slow down and regroup before bed.

I do it both ways. Depends on what I have going on and my mood. Try it both ways and see which one works the best for you. Enjoy!

Hey howdy there!

I'm hoping to get back in the habit of meditation and exercise, and i'm sure i'd be able to keep to doing both if i can do them pretty close to each other, otherwise i'll slack off and forget (and when i'm at school, the gym would be great and the meditation room is wonderful, why not take advantage of both)

I'm wondering what would be better for my meditation, though. should i do meditation first and then exercise, or exercise and then meditate? what do you guys do?
