Currently reading Fit Soul Fit Body, by Brant Secunda (Huichol Shaman and Healer) and Mark Allen (6 Time Ironman Champion). In chapter 2, Conquering Stress, they talk about quiet mind. During our workouts, sometimes our brains are chattering too much. But when you connect with nature, you can let your mine go quiet. I like running outside to hear and see nature, birds singing, see dear in the woods. When I run on trails I notice my mind goes quiet which I feel I am in another place as you were meditating. It is like having a mini vacation from life. When I am stress out I will run in Maudslay State Park, which I call my sanctuary. Try connecting to nature and letting you mind go quiet, you will be surprise how you feel.
Do you have place to go to quiet your mind, let us know.
