Meditation #54 – Inspiration from The World’s Happiest Man and Buddhist Monk, Matthieu Ricard

What’s up Fitness Peeps!

Thanks for checking out my podcast.

In today’s episode there’s a moment for gratitude, an inspiration from The World’s Happiest Man and Buddhist Monk, Matthieu Ricard,  a “Meditate Like You Exercise” visualization and then 5 minutes of meditation

Here are the inspiring words from Matthieu:

We don’t find anything strange about spending years learning to walk, read, write or acquire professional skills.  We spend hours doing physical exercises in order to get our bodies into shape.  Sometimes we expend tremendous physical energy pedaling a stationary bike that goes nowhere.  To sustain such tasks requires a minimum of interest or enthusiasm.  This interest comes from believing that these efforts are going to benefit us in the long run.  Working with the mind follows the same logic.

About Meditation for Fitness Peeps Podcast:

If you’re saying to yourself, “What the heck is this podcast all about?”, here’s the quick version.  I’m into health and fitness and so are a lot of my friends.  I’m also into meditation, but most of my fitness friends aren’t, because they don’t know how to do it, or, they think it’s too hard.  Because of that, I put together a quick and easy meditation practice that can be done in approximately 10 minutes and it includes: a moment for gratitude, an inspiration, a visualization and 5 minutes of meditation using a soundtrack that contains a binaural beat or an isochronic tone.  I’ve made it super easy for you and my fitness friends to start meditating.  YOU’RE WELCOME! 🙂  

By the way, I recommend that you use headphones while you listen to these meditations and NEVER LISTEN WHILE YOU’RE DRIVING
