I found this blog on meditation and I find it really interesting. It also has some really good guided meditation exercises in mp3 format.

And this is a post there that certainly remind me of Kabat-Zin :) http://livemindfully.blogspot.com/2009/ ... lness.html

That's really great. I'll paste a few of the notes here:

1. Do one thing at a time. Single-task, don’t multi-task. When you’re pouring water, just pour water. When you’re eating, just eat. When you’re bathing, just bathe. Don’t try to knock off a few tasks while eating or bathing or driving. Zen proverb: “When walking, walk. When eating, eat.”
2. Do it slowly and deliberately. You can do one task at a time, but also rush that task. Instead, take your time, and move slowly. Make your actions deliberate, not rushed and random. It takes practice, but it helps you focus on the task.
3. Do less. If you do less, you can do those things more slowly, more completely and with more concentration. If you fill your day with tasks, you will be rushing from one thing to the next without stopping to think about what you do. But you’re busy and you can’t possibly do less, right? You can. I’ve done it, and so have many busy people. It’s a matter of figuring out what’s important, and letting go of what’s not. Read more: The Lazy Manifesto: Do Less.
4. Put space between things. Related to the “Do less” rule, but it’s a way of managing your schedule so that you always have time to complete each task. Don’t schedule things close together — instead, leave room between things on your schedule. That gives you a more relaxed schedule, and leaves space in case one task takes longer than you planned.
5. Spend at least 5 minutes each day doing nothing. Just sit in silence. Become aware of your thoughts. Focus on your breathing. Notice the world around you. Become comfortable with the silence and stillness. It’ll do you a world of good — and just takes 5 minutes!

Wow, as am new to meditation, have been doing a guided by CD 10 minute mindfulness of breath. Decided to keep it simple and try to get improved skills of that for now, When other thoughts arrive have been able to get back to breathing ok.
After a few weeks, changes started to happen, if watching TV, will not watch a channel with those messages that stream across the bottom. Am watching about 10 % of before, and when i do, the remote is close by to mute the ads, and don't channel surf during the ads

And all those one thing at a time Alex mentioned, are starting to happen. After 10 years of being self employed and everything being rush, rush, but it was really more haste = less speed.

I wonder if it is similar for other people to have this new perspective, its like a young child experiencing and discovering new things.
love the post just done the 16 min body scan meditation from the website awesome :)
Great find. Thanks!

i'm falling in love with this blog more and more as the days go by :) i think it's great to combine the 20 minutes body scan with the 3 minutes with metta and the 20 minutes sitting meditation when i have the time :) and the 4 minutes body scan or the 3 minutes with metta when i don't have that much time. i guess they could be done when in the office, too, since you're supposed to be seated. simply great, really.
