Meditation, something I have done in various forms but the basic principles remain the same and are easy to do but hard to stick with at the outset. It does get better with practice tho so don’t give up easy is my advice. It’s your body, so master it! 🙂
I first started meditating by myself 6 years ago and read the instructions from “Book 4” and “8 Lectures on Yoga” by Aleister Crowley. These books attempted to lay it out simplistically for the western mind to grasp more comfortably then being bombarded by Sanskrit and Eastern mysticism. They probably where the first real documented guides on the subject of Yoga back when they were published in 1912 or so. For me, they worked extremely efficiently.Taking these basic principles and making a diary of results helped me greatly to understand what worked best for me.
After a period of time I become more proficient and the benefits certainly are vast. Calmness with inner peace, overflowing of love for nature and everything that exists and mindfulness. This from maybe just 45mins per day in two sittings. So I recommend it if you suffer the likes of panic attacks, uncertainty, stress, depression etc etc. It is so cheap to do its free, no need to buy expensive video guides or books, or even go to a class. Follow the basic rules and you are on your way.
A couple of years ago I went to Buddhist meditation evening classes and it transpired that the very same techniques that I had learnt from the above books are exactly what they were teaching me again. It sort of validated for me the accuracy of the books and their effectiveness.
The basics are contained in the article that I have linked below. Go on, even just try it the once and give you brain some time off. Normally it does not get the opportunity, even when sleeping. It needs a holiday too! Good luck!
