Today Meditation is attractive to people from so many different backgrounds and walks of life. Why is this so?
The reason lies in its simplicity. In our modern time, anyone can meditate, at any time of the day, wherever he is in this world. All you need is to take a bit of time for yourself. Can you have a few minutes alone in a quiet room or a walk in the park?
Then switch off your phone and devices, go outside, and fill your senses with whatever you come across, and breathe in some fresh air. You don’t even have to shut your eyes and concentrate. Be alone with your thoughts, and let them flow; that is all it takes to practice meditating. You don’t need to try to sit cross-legged to meditate, just sit back, relax, and close your eyes.
Not sure yet? Here are three good reasons why you should start with Meditation. It can help change your life for the better:
1. Meditation is beneficial for your health
Meditation boosts the immune system and makes it easier to manage pain, giving you positive emotions and a content feeling. It is also a simple and inexpensive form of therapy and decreases anxiety and stress. It gives you a pleasant experience of serenity.
2. Meditation for your brain
Research shows that Meditation increases your brain’s volume and the grey matter associated with thinking and memory. A few minutes of Meditation every day improves your concentration, memory and gives you more clarity. A lot of benefits for just sitting around and doing nothing.
3. Meditation improves your relationships
Meditation does not result in feeling lonely or isolated, as you may think. On the contrary, regular Meditation increases positive emotions and decreases depression, making it easier to connect and interact with others. You feel balanced and centered so that you like to connect and be with other people.
Sitting and doing nothing is what meditation looks like from the outside. A lot happens when meditating, especially in our nervous system.
Meditation changes the processing of stimuli in the nervous system, we don’t overreact to a stressful situation or negative emotions.
Instead, we let life, including all of our thoughts and feelings, be just as it is in the moment. These are only a few reasons to meditate, you will discover many more.
