One Secret to a Great Workout

Many health pros tout the virtues of meditation for the boost they say it gives the mind-body connection. Meditating can help you get more out of your workouts by helping you to:

  1. Stay focused
    Incorporating meditation into your workout can help you stay present and in the moment, so you’re fully immersed in your moves—not distracted by a thousand different things.

  2. Prevent injury
    When you work out in a meditative frame of mind, you’ll put more thought into proper form and motion, which can help prevent injury.

  3. Focus on your breathing
    Surprisingly, many people forget to breathe—or breathe improperly—as they get into their workout. Steady, rhythmic breathing can help you keep pace better because you're continuously getting oxygen to your muscles.

  4. Keep your head in the game
    When you're pushing through the hardest parts of your workout, keeping a meditative frame of mind can help you push through and reach your goal.

Always be sure to talk to your doctor before starting any diet or exercise routine.
