first off im sorry I know this topic has been discussed before but id like to hear some more experiences. Recently ive noticed my mind is always racing mostly because of stress from exams/university/etc. I cant even really let off steam in the gym because of a broken fibula.
Ive tried meditating a few times, but found it very hard to calm my mind and sit still long enough. Ive been reading about meditation and would really like to hear from all you who have tried meditation/regularly meditate. So any advice or just your experiences would be great.
how long did it take to get to the point where you could actually meditate instead of just sitting around? how did it affect your thinking/training/life in general?
