I recently started meditation regularly and I have started to reap the amazing benefits. Many people wonder what mediation is about and what makes it so special. Let me tell you a bit about the power of meditation.
What is Meditation?
Check out this amazing definition I found on Yogapedia.com
Meditation is the process of quieting the mind in order to spend time in thought for relaxation or religious/spiritual purposes. The goal is to attain an inner state of awareness and intensify personal and spiritual growth. In practice, meditation involves concentrated focus on something such as a sound, image or feeling.
The simple way to describe mediation is a process of silencing the subconscious mind. It works by stilling the mind and body so that it becomes more receptive to a positive lifestyle. At first I struggled to keep up with meditating on a daily basis. It was hard for me to find a few minutes here and there everyday and I just kept procrastinating. However, I got myself to start meditating everyday somehow and I now I do it easily.
How I Meditate
Mediation has completely changed my life. I am more in tune with my body and mental health
. It has changed everything about my life and how I deal with all that life brings. I can’t imagine not meditating now. I started off mediating for 10 minutes twice a day with a timer and now I meditate for 15 minutes twice a day. Before I start my mediation, I make sure I am sitting comfortably and wearing loose clothing. I also make sure I am alone and my phone is on silent mode so I don’t get distracted.
I would advise everyone to mediate if they don’t already. The benefits are too numerous to mention. Your mind and body will thank you for it. You can start with an app if you are new to meditating. I started with Headspace months ago after trying a couple of meditating apps I didn’t really get. However, I don’t use any app now. I just get on with it using a timer on my iPhone and it works great for me. Now that I am so into meditating, I wonder how I coped all these years without it. It is so important in my daily routine now.
