Do you practice meditation?
I am still a novice to the art of sitting quietly, but I've always found it to be very helpful.
Peace comes easily when the mind is tranquil, the body still.

I have meditated both sitting and standing. I've also done walking meditation and yoga nidra (yogic sleep). My favorite meditation experience was doing an all-day silent yoga and meditation retreat.
I enjoy non-traditional forms of meditation, too: making art, hula hooping, listening to natural sounds in public spaces, even while riding the train around the city.

If you meditate, would you mind sharing your favorite video, CD, resource, book, or instructor that's helped you on your journey?
I'm writing a series on Greatist about the art of meditation, and I'd love your input!
