Meditation & Quality of Life
For many people, fatigue, illness, anxiety and depression are a regular part of their daily lives. Most people have a desire to reduce these unpleasant experiences, however, do not know how.
Meditation is a profound technique that is recognized worldwide as a skill set that no pill or supplement can match. The ability to silence and relax your body and mind at will is a skill set that anyone can learn. Just like all things that are truly worthwhile in life, the art of meditation does require a little practice and guidance from a professional. This tool set creates immeasurable benefits to every aspect of your life.
Benefits of Meditation:
- Meditation teaches us to slow down our thoughts. This frees up space in our mind to experience who we are beyond our worries, anxieties, frustrations and fears. This place of deep serenity within, is the basis to a fulfilling and happy life.
- Meditation creates greater clarity in our thinking. Quieting the mind and letting go of thoughts, allows us to see ourselves and the world around us from a more balanced and peaceful perspective. This is a beautiful experience that is often masked with the endless negative commentary from our mental judgements.
- Meditation improves our ability to handle stress. After a bit of practicing, you will notice that you are better able to “step back” and pause, and respond gently and effectively when confronted with problems.
- Meditation brings our emotions into balance. This is the state of being “Centered”. Here we return to a natural calm state of being. We are better able to accept the present moment as it is, regardless of what is going on in the world around you.
- Meditation slows down our negative judgements of ourselves and of others. When we no longer allow our emotions to control us, we move beyond judgments into a deeper truth. This helps us feel a greater compassion for all.
- Meditation slows down the perpetual ‘mind-traffic’. This allows intuitive wisdom to get through. This state of heightened awareness allows us recognize the presence of the observer – who is wise beyond imagining.
