-_..-*TWO, MOST BENEFICIAL PRACTICES*-.._-
Out of the various exercises that we have completed throughout the span of this course, I believe that meditation and visualization have become the most beneficial to my life. I say this for many reasons. First off, this class has showed me what integral health is, and exactly how to reach it. I now feel like I am well on my way to living a more wholesome life that I can enjoy day to day.
Meditation is something that I now like to participate in during the mornings after I wake up and evenings before I go to sleep. Even if I don't complete the same exact meditiation the book taught me, I can still get into the same zone, which makes me feel in close contact with my inner self. Visualization has helped me to calm down in times of distress. Whenever I feel like my world is crumbling apart into a million peices, I take a few minutes out of my day to find a quiet place. In this quiet place I use visualization to escape from reality.
-_..-*FOSTERING MENTAL FITNESS*-.._-
Implementing meditation and visualization has already began to foster mental fitness within my life. I know this because I now catch myself doing things that I have never done in the past. Instead of letting something small take control of me, I use mental fitness to take control of the situation and look at it with a positive attitude. Instead of letting the endless problems of our day to day activities make a mark in my health, I now use meditation and visualization as a balance to keep my mind, body, and spirit in check!!!
