Look at the image of that girl. What is she doing? Reading? Texting? Despite being on a crowded subway, she looks rather peaceful doesn’t she? She could be meditating you know? And if you’ve been meaning to do some yourself, but don’t have the time or care for being in a lotus pose for hours on end – you might be interested in a bunch of meditation techniques that you can do anytime, anywhere.

Standing Meditation

No Lotus pose required. Meditation can be done standing, and we stand everywhere. The next time you’re standing on the subway, or waiting in the checkout line, simply become aware of where you are, instead of the non-stop thoughts in your head. Just a couple of minutes are extremely beneficial.

Walking Meditation

This is just like sitting meditation, except that you’re walking. A great place to do this is on the beach or in the park. Become aware of each step, each bird chirp, the gently breeze against your face. Focus your attention on anything except the non-stop stream of thoughts in your mind.

Tai Chi

Thinking of joining a sports or activity group? Why not kill two birds with one stone and join a Tai Chi instead? While meditation is very much an individualistic practice, you’ll get to enjoy the social aspect of being amongst other like-minded meditators before and after.

Qigong

Just like Tai Chi, Qigong is another form of rhythmic “moving meditation”. It’s different than Tai Chi in that it combines meditation with low-impact exercise, which greatly improves anxiety and stress. Studies have even shown that it’s been proven effective for overcoming substance abuse as well.

Dance Meditation

Do you like to dance? Then it’ll be hard for you to not like this form of meditation. Classes are quickly becoming more popular and more available, and include dance techniques like jumping, yelling, and hooting like an owl. While you can’t use these moves in a club, you’ll definitely love how they release all over tension in your body and mind.

Daily Life Practice

Think you can’t meditate in the shower or while doing the dishes? Think again. Well, actually, don’t think. That’s the point. Simply focus on the beads of water hitting your head in the shower or the motion of your hand cleaning the dishes is meditation enough.

Hand Movement Meditation

Ever notice how an itchy spot on your body is analogous to the distractions of daily life? Well here’s an easy meditation to do. The next time you feel the need to itch or scratch, stop for a moment, then slowly proceed, focusing all your attention on the intention and movement of your hand.

Gazing Meditation

So here we are, back on the subway, streetcar, or bus. See a window? Great, look out it and focus on the scenery – not your thoughts. It doesn’t get any easier, or more convenient.

Breathing Meditation

That girl on the busy subway wasn’t reading or texting at all. She was just focusing on her breath. Your breath is one of the few constants that’s always with you, always there for you to focus on – anytime, anywhere.

Health & Fitness Tip/Fact #1

Chiropractor treatment is becoming a popular choice to treat patients who experience pain due to accidents and injuries. Accidents cannot be prevented and most people tend to get injured while performing daily activities or playing sports or any other physical activity. Although conventional medical treatment helps provide relief, there are many who continue to endure the pain as the root cause of the problem is left unattended.

Health & Fitness Tip/Fact #2

As you go about your lower body workouts, one exercise you will want to include in your protocol plan is the deadlift. Stiff legged deadlifts are great for working your glutes, your lower back as well as your hamstrings and, at the same time helping you to be more steady on your feet. If you do a lot of squatting and leg press work, you may be overdeveloping your quads while underdeveloping the back of your body. To improve your balance, deadlifts are key.

Health & Fitness Tip/Fact #3

MAKOplasty is a robotic-assisted surgical procedure that doctors recommend to patients with knee and hip pain. The procedure is mostly used to treat knee osteoarthritis.
