The "Whiz-ard" That Is Dr. Oz

Me-Me-Me-Me – Putting the Me in Meditation

Leave a comment

Meditation – OY VEY.  It’s something that sends shivers down my spine.  A BIIIGGGGGG part of me thinks it’s hooey (there’s that word again) but the other part of me knows that if Deepak Chopra and Ghandi do/did it, there must be something to it.  I believe that there are some people out there who truly are deep and can attain a meditative state.  I also believe that there are some very shallow people out there who see meditation as a way to jump on a bandwagon of things that they feel will make them seem deep.  You know them – the same people you see walking determinedly down the street with their yoga mat, in their LuLu Lemons (not the sheer pants heaven forbid), talking about how fabulous their “experience” was and how Zen they feel on their iPhone in one hand, with their Starbucks Zen Tea in other to prove to the world how in the moment they are.   To be fair, there are probably some people in the middle as well, just looking for alternative ways to relax which would be me.  We already established that I do have my shallow moments…but I do think…a lot…and need to learn how to quiet my mind.

The first two letters in meditation are ME – so hopefully something will resonate with ME.  Dr. Oz says, as part of his ulimate sleep challenge, to commit to meditative practice.  He even includes a handy video featuring Deepak Chopra to help you learn the basics http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/deepak-chopra-meditation.  I’m willing to try it, because a) Dr. Oz is telling me to, b) Trying things that are outside of your comfort zone are just good for you in general, at least that’s what I think and c) Deepak Chopra is guiding me…and even his name starts with Deep…

I’ll keep you posted on my meditative process…until next time…mememememememememememe.

Hello and welcome to my blog. This started as a one year experiment to try to improve my health, turning to Dr. Oz for advice. One year became two and after that, the writing bug hit and writing about travel, lifestyle and my own musings became more fun. I'll return to the "Whiz-ard" when the feeling comes, but exploring other topics and getting to connect with new people and re-connect with old friends has been fun! Remember, any health advice you see here should be vetted with your family doctor. Any travel advice that I give though, should be followed! I am a marketing professional, working in media. This allows me to continue my obsession with all things TV and print and get paid for it. I'm an avid traveller, reader and shopper but make time for friends, family and volunteering so that I don't feel completely shallow.
