No matter how much we try to control situations in our lives, the only thing we have no control over is our own mind. It is a constant burning cauldron of thoughts and to imagine a focused thought would indeed be difficult.
Meditation seeks to elevate you to a state of focus where you can rein in the thoughts running around in your mind, vying for your attention at the same time. In today’s time instead of thoughts, stressors compete to run amuck through our brain. We keep shuffling between things to worry about.
There are ways to make sure stressors do not catch up with you. You could keep an organizer, buy insurance or try meditating. The former two can be bought and made complete use of and are sure shot ways of keeping your life sorted. However, meditation is something that you have to work upon intrinsically to bring peace.
Our stresses affect not only the mind but also our health to a large extent. It has been proved that psychological stressors manifest as physiological outcomes. For example ulcers are very common among people who are burdened with stress.
Meditation frees the mind of all the clutter that causes us distress. It allows us to feel happiness, a feeling that gets stifled under all the worrisome things. There are different techniques of meditation, some follow a chant, some follow a single thought and concentrate on it. Spiritual meditation is not aligned to a certain religion; it is merely for your own benefit.
A calm and quite environ is the most suitable space for meditating. It’s difficult to find peace in a chaotic office environment or public transport or even in your house with the television blaring behind you. While meditating, it is important to follow certain postures to make sure that your body is in sync with the environment. These postures are easy to follow but if you want to try specific technical positions or ‘aasans’ then it is better to learn them from someone who is trained.
Meditation is a way where you give time to yourself to balance out your life. All it requires is some time from your side and a calm place. You can see the change that a calm mind brings and your confident and sorted self will manifest externally as well. Share if you know certain sure shot strategies of !
