Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.
Meditation is gaining popularity. Given the amount of stress, demands and lack of time facing people each day, it is easy to comprehend why people are seeking a way to reclaim a breathe and regain focus, even if it is only for a moment. An image of bearded men on a mountain top, sitting with legs crossed is being replaced instead by pictures of persons in a calm state, seated anywhere they choose. Meditation helps deliver a more serenity and calm in life.
The main purposes of meditation are relaxation and stress reduction. During meditation, the focus of attention isn’t on all the mangled thoughts that are the cause of stress and tension. Meditation is peaceful, calming and balances the mind that in turn is beneficial to emotional, mental and physical overall health. Following meditation and returning to the pace of life prior to meditation, a sense of greater calm is present. With a more cleared mind, even if meditation was only for a brief period, facing the demands causing the stress is easier to address.
Emotional benefits of meditation:
- Reduced negative emotions
- Increased self-awareness
- Gain of a new perspective on stressful situation
- Focus on the present
There is no “type” of person better at meditation than another. Anyone can meditate. It’s an inexpensive practice requiring no additional equipment. Meditation may be practiced anywhere. Making time for a quiet break can make the difference for the balance of the tone of a day.
Places to meditate:
- On a walk
- As a passenger on a bus, in a car
- Waiting at the bank, grocery store or at an appointment
- Before going to bed or getting up
- Shutting your office door for a few minutes
- At the beach or on the ski lift
