I find that my meditation time works well when I am doing other things and it gets me through without me realising the time etc

Keep on track

Very interesting. I'm going to try this. I use my treadmill time to think through work details, usually, and find it very useful for that. But sometimes I run out of things to think about and end up just listening to music and trying to sing along in my head. This focused intention exercise might be more productive and beneficial than that!

"When boredom or fatigue strike during a workout, you might try to distract yourself by flicking on the tv of chatting up your treadmill neighbor. But tuning in - instead of checking out - may be the smarter tactic.

Just ask yoga teachers. At the beginning of class, they often urge students to set an intention, like "feel more gratitude" or "let go of stress," to help them stay focused and tap into the purpose of their practice.

Experts say intention setting can be a powerful tool in any fitness discipline, not just yoga. "It zeros in on something you cna connect to emotionally, and unlike a long-term goal, you can make good on an intention in a single session, which is very satisfying," says celeb trainer Brett Hoebel. In other words, you can't, for example, lost 10 pounds during a 45-minute class."

**I think this might be a good thing to try.**
