Last week we had a pre-class discussion/question about the practice of gratitude. This spawned from an excellent podcast I'd heard on the Tim Ferris Podcast concerning the importance of practicing gratitude. We followed up by asking each member of the class to express gratitude for something they had going well.

I've also done a 3 day fast with trace amounts of fat and water as well. The reason for this being as a meth...

My journey with meditation. "Shine your heart forward"

I wanted to write a little something about meditation for a while, so I figured why not now!

About 4 months ago I started to realize that I had really spent a lot of my life developing my physical health via exercise and nutrition, but had done very little outside of work-related health articles and working out to develop my mental acuity.
