Monkeying around with meditation

If what they say is true, it has health benefits that can rival many pharmaceuticals. I'm told it can nearly stop a hot flash in its tracks. Apparently it's so effective, it just might be the cure for everything from reducing stress to male pattern baldness. Oprah says it can even help you lose weight. I am speaking, of course, of meditation.

So after hearing all the hoopla about the wonders of this mental discipline, I thought I'd give it a try. It seemed so peaceful, so simple. In a houseful of teenage testosterone and my mid-life hormones routinely on a rampage, a little serenity would be om-tastic. By freeing my mind of the clutter and the noise, I was going to meditate my way to inner peace, enlightenment and maybe even a smaller dress size.
