Meditate For A Better Life.

Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or as an end in itself
– Wikipedia

There is no easy way to meditate. The only way is attempt to meditate. In this world of neurotic behavior and instability in life and technology we find it hard to take a moment to relax, focus and concentrate on ourselves. If we can spare five minutes in a day to close our eyes, take a deep breath and relax we may just have a very fruitful day.

Idyllically the essence of our life is the need for some bliss, peace and calm, it is what you need for yourself.  It would do us a world of good if we could just relax those straining muscles, dissolve those inconsequential worries and melt the tension from our bodies and thus indulge in converging on ourselves.  A meditative mind will also perceive an upsetting thought, but lets it die, while a negative mind lets it rule.

Research and studies show a lot of positives from meditation. The relaxation effect is so powerful that “disease fighting genes” power up if one regularly meditates. If you practice meditation, your chance of ailments from arthritis and lower blood pressure reduces and there will be an increase in the body’s healthy hormone levels and immunity. Emotional balance is hard to achieve and meditation can cure neurosis and traumatized egos.

Let’s face it, we live in a stressed out world of pandemonium and complexity. It is hard to keep up and stay relaxed in life. But after a day’s work, it has to be time to unwind. Practice meditation for five minutes and increase that time as you go along. If you meditate daily, you will reduce the release of the stress-hormones adrenalin and cortisol that are the culprits in heart disease, infertility and low immunity. Muscles contract and tighten when we are stressed and this causes digestion issues that should not occur.

Always meditate to release stress and stay relaxed. It will help in creating positive energy around you, creating a better life work balance and handling stress effectively. Start now, just time yourself for five minutes of deep intense breathing, exhale and inhale and focus your mind on your breathing. Divert your mind from all distractions and simply reflect on your breath.

Meditation brings wisdom; lack of mediation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what hold you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.
- Buddha
