The audio files below review an introduction to meditation or mindfulness training.  With a little humor involved in the process!

Our lives can be so stressful, but nothing beats quieting our busy brains down, so they simply accept each moment as it comes to it.

We often "resist" each moment as it comes to us.

We may do that by thinking too much, feeling too much, worrying about the past, worrying about the future, planning, dwelling on how things are not how you like them.

Hey, we are good at fighting the present moment!

But that is where we live.

We have no other time to live in, but now.

Ever hear someone say after running a mile they felt exhilarated?  Slept better?  Was better able to resist anxious thoughts?  Focused better?
Of course you have!  If not, just listen to athletes talk about their work out routine sometime on TV.
Now, did you ever want to know how running gives such a good boost for the brain? 
The “weird science” behind this is that running is good “gene therapy.”   That’s right, running and working up a sweat actually “turns on” our DNA, according to a study by Dr. Amelia Russo-Neustadt and associates in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology.
