What Meditation Is

Simply put, meditation is sitting still and quieting your mind. It is the act of being totally present with what is, without making mental commentary. When you meditate, you are in the most pristine, natural state of being. In other words, your mind is quiet and you are just being. Think of meditating as the freedom to just be. Theres no pressure. There are no deadlines. And while there are a lot of different styles of meditation, theres really no right or wrong way to do it. You are simply in a calming, peaceful state of being. I believe that when you are in this quiet state of mind, you are a human being, instead of a human doing

While youll find that meditation is peaceful, its not exactly peace of mind...

Exercise Bicycles

Exercise Bicycles

We live in a non-exercising and all around unhealthy society. The majority of us promise ourselves and others that we are going to begin a healthier lifestyle, however, for one reason or another the goal gets put on the back burner. Exercise bicycles make the goal easier to reach. They are inexpensive and do not require the daily trip to a gym.

The most popular is an upright model or sometimes called a stationary bike. They are designed to be like the bikes that are normally ridden outside, except the bike itself remains in a stationary position. These models can be used either standing or sitting and are available with or without handlebars. They can be the least expensive of the indoor cycles and some have the capacity to be folded up for easier storage...

Strength Training is Real Exercise

Strength Training is Real Exercise

Somehow the notion that exercise should be either easy or only moderately difficult continues to be the most detrimental misunderstanding by many would be exercisers. People are being misled into believing that they only need to mildly exert themselves and they will reap dramatic benefits in the process.

This misguided assumption destroys the potential effectiveness of the exercise regime of every person who possesses this belief. You will be very disappointed with your lack of results if you let this belief interfere with your willingness to exert yourself during your workouts.

Let’s get thing straight – activities such walking, running, biking, swimming, etc are often construed as exercise by the media, general public and health/medical...

Exercise To Improve Your Mood

Exercise To Improve Your Mood

People are always being warned about the health benefits of exercising, mainly the improvement and maintenance of physical fitness and the prevention of heart disease, blood pressure illness, and diabetes. Countless others do not,while many of us happily comply. Irrespective of whether it is using the treadmill or short walk around the block, staying fit and healthy does not seem to be a driver for us to leave the comfort of the couch.

I believe that if more emphasis were placed on the mental benefits of exercising, more people would exercise. If you tell someone that doing a little bit of exercise might improve their well-being, said person might be more willing to actually exercise in order to improve mood, fitness, and health...

How to Use and Choose an Exercise Bike

Exercise bikes can be used for cardio exercise, building endurance, burning fat and calories, and strengthening muscles. No matter what you use your exercise bike for it’s good to know basic use and safety. There are two styles of exercise bikes – upright and recumbent – and their operation is the same. To get started, position yourself onto the seat. Put your feet on the pedals and adjust the seat so that you come close to full knee extension but not all the way, then adjust your seatback angle for comfort. When you’re ready, start pedaling! This will start the machine and you can then select your workout program from one of the preset exercises or personalize your workout to your own liking...
