Whether you are a seasoned meditator or are just curious about it, start your day fresh and relaxed with a 30-minute mindful meditation, which will be different each morning.
Most of us are overstimulated and over-scheduled, which leads to mental, emotional and physical stress. Stress accumulates as a direct result of our out-of-balance lifestyle. Research shows that over 80 percent of all doctor visits are due to stress-related complaints, such as anxiety, high blood pressure, depression, insomnia, chronic pain, allergies, digestive disorders, inability to focus, and fatigue.
Meditation is a perfect antidote to stress. And anyone can learn to do it. If you can think a thought, you can meditate. And you don’t have to change your diet, your religion, or your beliefs. You don’t have to stop thinking or clear your mind either. You simply must have the desire to do it and a willingness to commit to a short practice.
If you do it daily, you will notice the benefits unfolding naturally and effortlessly. But knowing about meditation will not give you the benefits—doing it will. Each person has their own reason for learning to meditate. Whatever yours is, the practice of meditation will help you to cultivate more inner peace, creativity, inspiration, harmonious relationships, fulfillment, better health, and increased self-awareness.
