I can't meditate anymore . can't sit down and do nothing for long .I need constant distraction. I can barely hold a thought to see it through to conclusion. 

 

What I really like to do is hang out with people and have a laugh.

 

I need to get my mind back, starting from tomorrow.

 

How about you?

On my 2 days off of work the first day I usually sit and do nothing but listening to music for hours.

Yes I do that too, but I am talking about just sitting alone with your thoughts, no music or anything. It's scary to contemplate for me. Not that there is a need to do nothing ,I think it just represents my short attention span.

The only time i really ever sit alone in my thoughts is in the final 2 hours of work when it slows down.

 

Or when something sad is going on in my life. I usually am really quiet both in how I act and what I choose to hear. Its never pleasant.

I can do it when I've got weed, but that isn't always available or always desirable. Basically drugs make it a lot easier.  My mind is left rather damaged after a somewhat difficult life so far, with great times interspersed.

I think the better question is why would you want to sit and do nothing.

Reminds me of one time back when I lived with my mother.
I was home in the livingroom in the dark just sitting there nothing on.
Mom walks in and says "why are you sitting there doing nothing "
I asked "what do you want me to do?"
She said "watch tv"
I answered "the stories in my head are better than anything on tv"

I think it's a weakness to be always looking for the next emotional kick, whatever that may be.

When i have problems, i like the quiet..Living alone allows me to do that..

I couldn't meditate to save my life! Far too many people in my head..

Music, some heavy rock, that's my meditation, i like my choices! Works for me.

Dosnt have to be emotional.
Exercise is all physical and literally results in the opposite of weakness.
