One of the best personal development tools in the world, meditation can teach you to disidentify your mind and emotions. You don’t need to be of a certain age, gender, or in a phase in life to practice meditation. If you have conscious awareness, you can learn the art of meditation with quick & easy techniques.
The benefits of meditation are vast with no side effects whatsoever. As little as five minutes a day can bring you much-needed respite and transform your perspective towards yourself and the world. Yet, people always manage to come up with various excuses as to why they can’t include meditation in their daily life.
- I don’t have enough time
- I don’t know where to start
- It’s difficult to practice it every single day
- I need someone to guide me
Nobody said it was easy right? The idea of sitting still for 5 minutes without thinking of anything sounds very difficult. It truly is. But good things always come to those who wait and better things come to those who persevere.
If you try to meditate daily, you’ll notice the brain vomit that constantly flows in your mind. We expend our mental energy on mostly useless thoughts and opinions that cloud our brains. Chances are your mind is a mess of thoughts on a daily basis and you’re blissfully unaware of it. Meditation can train our minds to hone our thoughts and easily dissect which ones are useful and which aren’t. This happens because we separate our egos from our identities, our thoughts from our emotions, and our feelings from our reality.
