Meditation is amazing: it can truly change your life!
If you’re geared a little differently than other people and you’ve become interested in exploring new possibilities and approaches beyond what most accept at face value, then you can look forward to the following key benefits from a regular practice of meditation:
- Increased energy, which can be felt as motivation, determination, and stamina to tackle your goals and change the circumstances of your life – whether that means getting a great new job, going back to school, ending a troubled relationship, or simply getting out of bed on time in the morning!
- A greater sense of balance. Balance cannot be pursued or achieved. It is only a by-product of living a right life – a life that is right for you, as defined by you and no one else. Meditation can be part of that formula. Mental clarity and increased awareness, so that you can make decisions more easily and with confidence, because you see through to the essence of things.
- An ever-expanding capacity for love and joy, because you’re not so blocked up with mistaken notions and confusing thoughts – and, because you feel good, you can spread that around to everyone you meet!
- Improved physical health and wellbeing. Recent medical studies have documented a wide range of health benefits from meditation, including lowered blood pressure, reduced risk of heart attack and stroke, less incidence of depression, improved sleeping habits, fewer headaches, and more.
You need to meditate every day to get the most out of it. Periodic or intermittent meditation is certainly better than no meditation, but doing it every day is where the real power comes.
