That is pretty nuts. I can’t wait to see where this leads. We may discover antimatter-antihumans and we may have to battle them.

Such a great reminder that taking a short minute break during the day can do you a lot of good. I’d prefer a 30 minute meditation but a 2 minute breather can really reinvigorate you.

I was talking to a tibetan lama and he said, we westerns should take 5 minutes every 2 hours to be really mindfull of what were doing at that moment, noticing how you feel, what you think but don’t lose concentration on what you are doing. Do that for 2 weeks and then slowly increase the time and you will feel much better during the day.

Haha my comment was meant for the science article about researching anti-matter for the first time; I don’t know why it was posted here. I did it and it felt incredible, very meditative. Usually when I do stuff like that my vision changes in very interesting ways. Perspective starts to change and my depth perception kind of becomes malleable.

And maybe meditating enough WILL actually lead to the discovery of antimatter-antihumans and we MAY have to battle them

llamas are talking to you? O_o

lol, just kidding. I don’t quite understand what you mean by being mindful.

Being mindful is basically just become aware. Aware of your thoughts, emotions, tendencies, etc. It’s taking a step-back from the world and really thinking about the world you and role in it. Does that make sense?

I did this exercise the other night. I closed my eyes and oddly 30 min. later they reopened, I was kinda set back by how easily my mind just let go of everything.

I love the fact that it reprimands you with a big fat FAIL if you want to give up, it’s almost like a guilt trip for not relaxing.

Great tool for mi trabajo Thanks!

Doing nothing for 2 minutes made me realize how incredibly uncomfortable my new boxers were.

Do not fear I am not naked…. anymore.

Peace

I took a mindfulness meditation class at one point, very difficult, but almost impossible when the other students couldn’t take it seriously. I really want to try it again now. I’m not sure how long passed -after- the 2 minutes… But I know I caught my thoughts straying and had to go back to focusing on my breathing a lot. Practice is needed.

Thanks for sharing! I found this website while “stumbling” a few months ago—needless to say, it caught me by surprise, who knew 2 minutes lasted so long! haha. Since then I’ve set it as my homepage so whenever I open my browser I force myself to relax for a little bit.
