You’ve tried to meditate, like, a million times. But there’s just something about sitting still for 20 minutes that doesn’t click with your on-the-move personality.
Here’s something that might be more your speed (literally): mindful running.
The basic concept is similar to mindfulness meditation, or using focused attention to reduce stress, improve sleep and heighten focus and creativity. The only difference? It’s a little less stationary.
To try it, go for a run like you normally would but make a concerted effort to clear your mind and focus on your breathing. You can run without headphones and be totally alone with your thoughts or listen to calming music (you know, the kind without words).
