Meditation, a form of self introspection, is known to all and is practiced by many. Guys, meditation is not just an activity or some kind of a way to pass time, rather it is a way to reach to yourselves, deeper and deeper inside, and finally emerging with your soul. Although anyone can practice it, but it takes time and asks for your complete focus.
I don’t know the exact history of it, but the origins of it trace back to the ancient India and are believed to be in prehistoric times as well. It is not culture- oriented. I must say here, that although sleep provides you a noticeable rest, meditation gives you something much deeper than that. Being physically fit is important but inner strength and calm is equally as important as that. Meditation basically starts from the basic learning and eventually reaching to higher levels of peace and tranquility.
People, who get confused about where to start learning it from, can reach out to the trained professionals and YouTube addicts know where to go! All I want is that you all get motivated to meditate, I am sure it will bring out the best from you as individuals. It’s been over a year since I started practicing meditation and trust me, it has helped a lot.
Meditations helps me in stress-relieving, positive thinking and getting new thoughts. Just few moments of chanting OM and breath-in-breath-out helps me get back to my positive self.
You don’t require hours to meditate or particular time for it. Though it is suggested that early morning is the BEST time to meditate but you can do it anytime you wish. I often do it in the evening or before sleeping. I have recently learned an amazing thing called sleep meditation and I shall share about it with you all as soon as I learn the entire thing.
You can also take a nature-walk and just flush out your thoughts from your mind. This is also a kind of meditation. The idea is calm down your soul and mind and feel fresh.
If you ask me one thing that I’d want you to include in your routine, I’d say meditation and I think, this says it all.
