When did you start meditating?

I started meditating around 20 years ago after an accident. I was so anxious about the future and occupied with worries and unlimited thoughts. I then started jogging and meditating for 2 hours every morning. I slowly found myself becoming more attentive, concentrating better and having clarity in thoughts. When I look back today, meditation at that time helped me to strengthen the pre-frontal cortex area of my brain.

Why do you meditate?

Thoughts pop up at all time. Meditation and mindfulness help me tame those ‘monkey’ thoughts and train up my mind muscle.

What is your meditation tip?

When you feel stressed, conduct a 7/11 minute breathing exercise. It can help you alleviate stress instantly!
