    I usually meditate for a half hour before a workout. I started doing it when I was going thru my divorce 8 years ago.

    I had tons of stuff going on in my head at the time and couldn't really get a good workout in. A trainer recommended it, it worked pretty well and I've stuck with it ever since.

    It's the only time I do it though.

    I'm pretty new to it, Chiva's teaching me. I have problems sleeping and with stress, and it instantly helps with stress.
