How to Meditate Your Way

"Oh, here I am. I am home again." This is the thought that always pops into my mind the moment I settle into my workouts. Whether I'm dragging myself into the gym and picking up the weights, lacing up my shoes and going for a run, or simply taking a long walk at the nearby park... Here I am. I am home again. There's always a huge sense of relief, a big exhale. There's no more to do list or emails lingering in my inbox. There's no more laundry piling up and mail I've forgotten to send, again.

And just like that, I am home again. I've written before about finding myself through movement. How running, lifting weights and walking all saved my life in their own ways. How they changed my relationship with my body, and eased an obsession that nearly destroyed me. It wasn't until I was deep in a conversation about spirituality, awakenings, and creating more alignment and integration in my work, that I realized something else about movement that hadn't occurred to me. I struggle to sit down and meditate... to be still. And you know what? That's OK. It's OK because I have no issue being alone with myself and my thoughts, I actually love to be lost in that space. When I was little I used to love bedtime, because it meant I could close my eyes and just be with my thoughts. I could ponder life ...

AbstractObjectiveTo raise the diagnostic criteria, classification and treatment strategy of dynamic sagittal imbalance (DSI).MethodsOne hundred thirty-three adult spinal deformity (ASD) patients with stooping and back pain after walking were retrospectively analyzed. Based on the radiographic parameters and Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) scores, the diagnostic criteria of DSI were raised. DSI patients received nonoperative treatment and (or) surgery. Radiographic parameters and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) outcomes would be measured and compared between prewalk and postwalk and among each subgroup.ResultsOne hun...

Having responded well to an antidepressant I was determined to continue treatment for 6 months, to increase the probability of a full and lasting recovery. My productivity at work and confidence in social situations increased and it seemed easier to talk about emotional matters. Side effects became gradually less bothersome, though at times I was somewhat apathetic. Escitalopram may have helped to reduce long-standing back pain and niggly acoustic problems. Some symptoms appeared whilst I reduced the antidepressant dosage steadily: these were mild and resolved swiftly, but a few were quite puzzling. I hope this experience ...

Conclusion: This study provided a detailed description of the occurrence of the evaluated outcomes and its associated factors. Studies like this are rare in Brazil, especially a census with low rates of losses and refusals. The high prevalence of the evaluated symptoms suggests that it should be investigated routinely in prenatal care, taking into account the age of the pregnant women, depressive symptoms and those experiencing combined or intense pain.
