I’ve always felt that I could clear my mind by going on a long walk. I’ve never heard it called strolling meditation, but it makes perfect sense. By focusing on my breathing and posture, I’m able to let my mind view things from a different perspective. Thanks for an interesting post!

After reading your article, I really want to try switching the order and practicing meditation before an intense workout. It makes sense that being mentally strong and aware can take exercise to the next level. Thanks for giving me a new perspective!
I have always done a strange sort of meditation that involves walking on a treadmill. When I first started to work out years ago I had a job with so much stress,afterwards at the end of work, I would go to the gym and I always started the workouts walking on the treadmill. During this time I would start to decompress from all the stress. Your mind goes into a meditative state where you start to think about all those things that trouble you. I found when I was angry I walked more, I walked faster, maybe I would run for awhile. In the end I always felt better, like I worked out the problem. In fact I found solutions to the problems I had much faster once my mind was relaxed.
Thanks for the article, you give a lot of useful information. Meditation is something I feel would really benefit me – I’m bipolar, so anything I could do to quiet my mind would be great.

Meditation is something I try to practice every night before bed. My mind is always running and I find meditating to really help quiet it down.I think I will try meditating throughout the day in an attempt to de-stress. Stress has over taken my life lately and I desperately need to get it under control. I have never thought to meditate before working out but I will try it before my next workout! Thank you for the useful information!
Meditation is great for exercise. Having a clear mind and being focused before a workout could help. Strengthening the mind and then the body is not a bad idea at all. I have heard of this being done in yoga training, but it could work in other types of exercises also. This could also make exercise more pleasant. I think I will try this the next time I work out.
