The Benefits of​ Meditation
Meditation plays a​ large part in​ Eastern philosophies and​ religions. ​
Later on,​ the​ West also got hold of​ it​ and​ has realized that it​ has a​ lot of​ health benefits. ​

The one thing students and​ those work deal with everyday is​ stress. ​
Meditation for just 15 minutes or​ even longer allows you​ to​ relax and​ later enables you​ to​ make an effective decision. ​
it​ also lowers the​ level of​ stress anxiety in​ your system thus decreasing the​ risks of​ heart disease significantly. ​

The practice of​ meditation also makes you​ self aware of​ what is​ happening around you. ​
This enables you​ to​ focus on​ the​ present rather than events that happened in​ the​ past or​ the​ future. ​
it​ teaches you​ to​ be in​ control of​ your mind and​ not make you​ do anything based on​ your emotions. ​

Believe it​ or​ not,​ meditation also develops insight into our subconscious. ​
This is​ because our attitudes,​ behavior,​ feelings and​ perceptions are all connected and​ if ​ you​ are able to​ harness it,​ you​ will be able to​ understand yourself better.
This allows you​ to​ have a​ positive outlook in​ life and​ even make changes in​ yourself. ​
You become content or​ thankful with what you​ have instead of​ harboring feelings of​ anger,​ anxiety,​ greed,​ hatred and​ jealousy towards yourself and​ others. ​

You will also be able to​ see the​ big picture instead of​ the​ small one when given a​ task at ​ work so even if ​ there are a​ few setbacks a​ long the​ way,​ you​ are still able to​ keep your eye on​ the​ end game. ​

Medication can also make you​ feel younger. ​
This is​ because in​ one study,​ people who have been practicing this for many years were physiologically 12 years younger than their chronological age. ​
The results of​ the​ test were based on​ the​ test subject’s auditory discrimination,​ blood pressure and​ eye sight.
So now that you​ know the​ benefits of​ meditation and​ what it​ can possibly do,​ you​ are probably asking yourself right now how does it​ work? Well,​ let us first correct the​ common misconception about meditation. ​

A lot of​ people think that you​ have to​ sit in​ a​ pretzel position or​ go off to​ some far away place to​ make this work. ​
The truth is​ that you​ just have to​ find a​ quiet place where you​ won’t be disturbed,​ sit on​ the​ floor or​ on​ a​ chair in​ whatever position you​ like best and​ slowly clear your mind of​ all thoughts. ​

You should keep in​ mind that sitting in​ a​ comfortable position may sometimes make you​ doze off. ​
So concentrate otherwise it​ defeats the​ purpose of​ this exercise. ​

Next,​ you​ should close your eyes,​ focus on​ your breathing and​ let the​ positive air go in​ and​ the​ negative thoughts go out. ​
You might hear sounds nearby and​ since you​ can’t do anything about that,​ just acknowledge that it​ is​ there and​ just concentrate on​ this exercise. ​

This can be done at ​ work or​ at ​ home and​ how long it​ will be done depends on​ you. ​
Some people may start out for 5 minutes and​ then extend the​ time in​ the​ future. ​
The important thing is​ that you​ feel recharged and​ ready to​ taken on​ whatever challenge is​ out there when you​ are ready to​ open your eyes.
