Recently I felt as though the rug was pulled from underneath me. I wondered what it was, and realized that I had not properly meditated for a couple of months. I see why people have so much chaos in there lives, and I hope that this article titled why meditation at home can help.
I have termed meditation as medication in the past. I have done this for a good reason, that reason is fast paced living, stress and no time to clear the clutter.
It amazes me how some people can literally run like a motor spinning till something gives way. Our bodies are holistic, that means that you provide it wholesome food and wholesome activities that are mixed between work and play, and the body functions, if you take something away and we have problems.
Like how friction burns, the excess on life causes stress. This stress is a danger sign of the highest degree. Words like hypertension, stress, strokes, etc, all stem from this problem of imbalance in the body.
Stress is a killer. People go to work in dead end jobs or sometimes highly paying ones, work hard and pile on the stress. Over a lifetime the mind clogs up with so much rubbish, and it is only when we go on a vacation that we can take our minds off things, however even here we are not doing the best we can to keep in check.
Meditation is a key aspect to the mind, whereas vitamins and minerals are for the body. Without vitamin C, people get scurvy, the teeth and gums deteriorate. The truth is that a clogged up mind can cause serious damage.
Ok, so let us find solutions. A solution is meditation. The question is what is meditation really? Is it sitting with a master meditation guru? Is it going half way around the world to go on a pilgrimage?
It is none of these, though it can be those also, but it is unnecessary. Meditation at home doesnt need anything apart from peace and quiet.
Relaxing and turning attention inside can be an immense change when it is first done. Relaxing your body, and chewing on thoughts or rather just letting them flow is a great way to release a lot of pressure.
The benefits of even a few minutes of this each day can really make a big difference. Someone stressed may find another 10 years added to there lifespan. I recommend it, and if you know anyone in a position of major stress refer this article source to the person.
They will be glad with the extra 10 potential years, and one where with less stress we become more effective. What did it require? Only a few minutes each day, and the OM mantra is optional. Overall enjoy, relax, and have fun with meditation.
