Why is meditation so needed and so powerful? Put simply because your mind is not always your friend.
The mind is the most powerful tool we have. It is your most personal tool. It is also where all of your problems live. It's where you find inspiration, happiness, solutions, joy and tons of other amazing things.
The problem is we as people can be easily distracted. The mind can often be a noisy place full of destructive emotions and self-defeating thoughts. Your mind tells you what it believes is true or not; it tells you what to do, when and how you should feel.
What is the result of this? In a variety of forms, suffering.
Meditation allows us to press the pause button and stop all this madness. It gives you the power to see clearly what is happening and to understand yourself. With this you gain the ability to make better choices, to stop creating suffering for yourself and others and to enjoy emotional well-being. Over time you gradually develop mastery of the mind.
People at home and all over the world meditate everyday. Why do they do that, and why should you?
*Accept yourself, accept others and accept things you cannot change.
*Reduce feelings of anxiety, stress and being overwhelmed.
*Become more resilient to challenges in relationships and life.
*Be more empowered to be yourself and discover your potential.
*Be less reactive, less irritable, less triggered.
*Be liberated from fears.
*Develop the ability to focus and avoid procrastination/distraction.
*Turn off the mental chatter and experience piece of mind.
*Feel emotionally well, centered and happy
*Grow and awaken spiritually
Imagine how your life would be if you could have some of that as well...
Meditation helps you improve your self-awareness, your ability to let go and helps you gain mastery over your mind. That is why it facilitates these changes.
Meditating daily makes it easier for you to have self-discipline and start other positive habits (like exercise, diet changes, reading etc)
All it takes is a few minutes a day to begin to fully realize your true self by finally taking the time to look inside ourselves and open our minds.
