Getting More From Your Workout With Meditation

Today I want to give you a specific meditation. This mediation will help you in your overall life, and it will especially help you get optimal results from your exercise regimen.

Here tis:

1. Find a quiet place to lie down.

2. Close your eyes and start to breathe deeply from your diaphragm. Concentrate on your belly moving up when you breathe in and down when you breathe out.

Concentrate on this for 1-2 minutes...you'll feel very relaxed and not have a care in the world if you're truly concentrating.

3. Now, think of the body you desire. Craft it in your mind's eye.

- What will your abs look like? Toned, ripped, etc.

- What will your shoulders and arms look like? Defined, ripped, etc.

- What will your thighs and glutes look like? Firm, toned, etc.

- What feelings do you get from this? Pride, excitement, happiness, etc.

Really paint the picture in your mind's eye of what you look like and how you feel.

4. Make the picture you painted bigger and brighter. Imagine it becoming clearer as it grows, NOT pixilated, CLEAR. Continue to breathe deeply as you picture this.

5. Finally, as your picture becomes brighter, bigger, and clearer put a smile on your face and get the feeling inside your body of how you felt on Christmas morning as a child.

This feeling should create a smile on your face. It should feel natural and not forced. This feeling should also make you smile in your gut and down to your toes.

Try this meditation and let me know how you feel afterwards. This meditation is easy to do and should only take you 5-10 minutes depending on how into it you get.

Playing motivational music in the background will help you get into this even more. Be careful though...too much mediation that leaves you feeling like this will bring on results faster than you think. Be careful what you wish for (and imagine).

Do this meditation at least once a day and record how you feel in your journal. How you feel afterwards is extremely important. Write this down and see if you accomplish your goals faster.

NOTE: If you don't achieve your goals faster with this meditation I bet you're not consistent with doing this on a daily basis. I'm telling you this before you start so you understand to make this, or any meditation, work you have to make it a HABIT.

Have fun with this and really FEEL yourself like you imagine. Remember, your life is emotion driven...use that to your advantage!
