Question:Do you find that meditating gives you more energy?

Asked by springshine on 6/24/08 1 Answer»


I don't know that it gives me more energy, per se, but it does calm me down and make me feel more able to tackle challenges in my life. So in a way, it makes me more able to do things, but I don't feel like I'm on a crazy caffeine high.
