As we are experiencing stress and other mental issues in day to day life due to various reasons, Meditation offers as a means of relaxation and heightened awareness in a stressful world where our senses are often dulled. Research suggests that meditation is the best tool for stress relief and other mental problems.
Meditation is a simple way of freeing your mind, forgetting about daily anxieties and focusing on mental relaxation. Meditation is the process of continuous focus on one object for a prolonged period of time. It is a gentle, subtle method which does not require any force or pressure on the mind. This result in increased concentration and focus.
Just like developing any other skill, meditation requires regularity of practice. There are common misconceptions that meditation is something difficult, which requires years of practice to achieve any kind of result. This is simply untrue. People often report feeling the benefits of meditation immediately after their first session. You can begin today and experience it yourself with just a few steps.
Here are five tips for beginners to learn how to meditate:
1) Find a quiet, peaceful place.
2) Sit comfortably, with eyes closed and focus on the heart
3) Just Feel that the source of light is within my heart and it is attracting me inwards.
4) Meditate for 10 minutes, or until you feel ready to come out of the meditation.
5) Repeat it every day, in the morning and the evening.
There are two types of Meditation
Active meditation: What we observe in reality through open eyes in surrounding and feelings is active meditation.
Passive meditation: When we close our eyes and observe about our thought…coming and going is passive meditation.
However. Spiritual Gurus and Mental Health experts have developed dozens of forms of meditation. But I think people should explore the different types until they find one that works for them. Meditating around the same time each day can make meditation a habit that is easy to incorporate into daily life.
It is the fact that so many times you have felt those 24 hours are not enough in a day. Whether you’re a student or a professional, you are trapped in this fast-changing world, where it is increasingly more difficult to find time for oneself.
Usually, when we take a break from our busy schedules, we spend time on our mobile phones or laptops. It is harmful not only for the eyes but also for the mind. The mind is like a pendulum. It keeps swinging from one extremity to another. What we require is centeredness. To regulate the mind and give it some rest, the best medicine you can give it is meditation. It is true, Meditation acts like a battery-recharger. Just 10 minutes of meditation will leave you feeling calm and refreshed and feel able to tackle the rest of your workload.
It also helps in…..
- Reduces stress and bring peace: Regular practice of meditation reduces stress and promotes peace of mind. It also helps in other health problems like high blood pressure, irregular or high heartbeat, high pulse rate, abnormal breathing patterns, and anxiety also are regulated.
- Helps in concentration: The mind’s tendency is to think a lot and fickle, easily pulled in different directions depending on our personal likes and dislikes. Meditation is a great aid in regulating your mind.
- Helps you sleep better: Sometimes we struggle for hours to sleep due to restless mind. We are often stuck in limbo, worrying about the past and the future which interferes with our sleep at night. If you practice meditation on a regular basis, you will gradually begin to cherish the present moment and enjoy the comfortable sleep.
- Makes you emotionally stronger: During the meditation process, where we are constantly focusing our attention on one thing, we learn to let go of unnecessary thoughts. Meditation is a process of spending time with yourself and is a journey of self-discovery. By understanding ourselves, we are able to build our emotional resilience and emotionally stronger.
- Keeps you active throughout the day: One who is committed to balancing their mental energies is also a lot more energized. The positivity that you develop in your mind will give you the zest and enthusiasm to maximize your productivity throughout the day.
Hence, Meditation is considered a type of mind-body complementary medicine. Meditation can produce a deep state of relaxation and a tranquil mind.
During meditation, you focus your attention and eliminate the stream of jumbled thoughts that may be crowding your mind and causing stress. Be ready for the practice to keep you cheerful all the day .
