Benefits of Meditation
Meditation is a powerful practice that can change your brain, improve your life, and the enhance the quality of your life.
There is a misconception that you have to “do” meditation and “do it right.” I believe that meditation is about bringing our primary focus into being rather than doing; aim to be with our breath, be with our thoughts, be with our feelings/challenges/pain.
Mindfulness practice focus on being present and aware of what you are feeling, doing and sensing as it is happening. A seated meditation practice offers the opportunity for us to sit and be even though there are infinite things to do.
Here are a few of the benefits of meditation:
Reduces stress by calming the nervous system
Improves memory and learning
Improves sleep quality
Creates feeling of peace, calm and centeredness
Cultivates connection to Self/Source
Enhances creativity and problem solving ability
Creates present moment awareness
Changes your brain structure and function
There is a wide variety of techniques available that include seated meditation, walking meditation, mindfully eating and just about any activity you do can take on a meditative quality and awareness.
