Default Meditation

A thread for generel discussion about meditation.

Have it helped with your given sport? Have you benefitted from it?

I'll begin on a 8 week "program" (for lack of better word). I'll report back.

A link if you want to read about it: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Brain scans looking at activity in psychopaths and various experts performing their task show that brain activation is remarkably similar. Cold, calculated, unafraid and focusing only on what is in front of you right now. The same brain activity is found in buddhist monks.
Emotional regulation is the key to optimal performance, when a psychopath or an expert is confronted with a task they experience the same adrenaline and increased heart rate in anticipation as a 'normal' person, when the activity or situation begins the psychopath and expert actually slow their heart rate down and become calm in the face of adversity, that emotional stuff is buried and they're focused completely on their task. The person who gets emotional has their heart rate increase further, they go into survival mode and make poor decisions. If you're extremely fatigued or not switched on then some emotion can help performance for a short time, but that's only a brief surge.
Train your ability to turn on that cold switch, that focus switch. When you're emotional you're not focused.

Actually there doesn't seem to be any negative side to meditation.

Just wanted to hear your opinion on meditation.

Sorry for hijacking your thread BB.

Six continued doing Meditation, at the end of the season, those who carried on doing it, became Champions at the end of the year, I wonder.

When I first heard about all the benefits of meditation, I thought it was bull. But to see scientific proof is crazy!

Meditation should be done by everyone imo. It will help anything you do, sport or otherwise. Anything that trains you to be in the zone/moment and guided by logic instead of biased emotion is going to lead you to be more able control yourself and your environment. It promotes everything that is the opposite of fear.

Been doing it for years, love my trips round the Universe. out of of all the Armys that do it, Israels were the 1st. Not the best way to implement it. I use the TM technique, but Im sure the others are good too.

Interesting thread.
I always thought that pumping yourself up was the best way to get ready for a fight, now i'm not sure.

Its a waste of energy, been working on a theme the last 16 years, Im sure everyone thought I had lost it . Had lots of evidence, all anecdotal, so we Tested it at university 4 years of Testing. All the results were positive, what I thought on Stress was true. It stops the Body performing, theres other ways .

I don't dedicate as much time to it as I should but when I'm in my car and certain situations I try to be mindful so I guess I meditate regularly in that sense.
