Reap the great benefits of meditation

Reap the great benefits of meditation

    I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of the word, MEDITATION.

    Unfortunately, despite all the great benefits we can get from this technique such as focusing your attention on a specific object, sound, or thought to help you achieve a state of relaxation and clarity of mind, only a few really practice it.

    WHY?

    Maybe it’s because what we only knew about meditation is sitting still while closing our eyes and trying not to sleep. Trust me, I’m also one of those who’ve got great misconceptions about meditation as well. Nowadays though, I’ve been reaping the fruits of what I’ve learned about how meditation is done and enjoying the great benefits of it which I love, specifically, the clarity of mind.

    Let me share with you how meditation is done and how you can do this practice yourself and reap the fruits as well as I do!

    Find a quiet and comfortable place: Choose a quiet and comfortable space where you can sit or lie down without being disturbed.

    Get into a comfortable position: Sit or lie down in a comfortable position with your back straight and your hands resting on your lap or on your knees.

    Set a timer: Set a timer for the amount of time you want to meditate, such as 5, 10, or 20 minutes.

    Focus on your breath: Focus your attention on your breath as you inhale and exhale. You can count your breaths or simply observe them.

    Notice when your mind wanders: When your mind starts to wander, simply notice it and gently bring your attention back to your breath.

    Practice regularly: Consistent practice is key to developing a regular meditation practice. Try to meditate for a few minutes every day, gradually increasing the amount of time you spend meditating.

    And like every skill you want to hone, meditation takes time and practice to develop. Be patient with yourself and try not to judge your experience. Over time, you may find that meditation helps you feel more relaxed, focused, and centered.

    9. I have been meditating for years and over time, all my clarity has come through inner awareness. It is one of the best practices for any human being.

    10. I used to meditate and followed the process that you just mentioned in this post but somehow it didnt worked for me… the reason can be a restless mind or lack of patience… what exactly is the case for me I still wonder… but what for me works as a way of meditation is mandala art in special. I move to a different world altogether when I concentrate my mind on this artistic form … Meditation for me is being a part of art world… pen, pencil, canvas and colors

    12. I was just about thinking that I will resume meditation n here comes your post Jeannine. I haven’t meditated after the first wave of Covid got over.

    13. This is going to be a very important post for all of us. We actually lack the ways meditation should be practised. Finding a comfortable place which I think should also be giving priority as this highly needed on the concentration process I think.

    14. I am doing mediation since few days regularly and observing the benefits on personal level. it is a great way to calm down your nervous system and improve your sleep too.
