I could give advice but there are far better trained individuals and groups that can really tell you and show you how much meditation can affect your health! Instead I will simply share how meditation has helped me.
What started out as a simple gift of gratitude from a good friend waterfalled into a brand new way of life! I have gone to new places both physically and mentally I have never been before. From a mind that is never without thought to being able to empty my mind of everything for monuments in time.
If I am stressed I can meditate to calm down. If I am sad I can meditate to perk up. I can set my mind to one thought and really feel life’s answers all through my body. You can see how meditation can be healthy right? Some of you may be saying the typical excuse of, “I don’t have time”. Well I am not the first in your life to say that Idea of no time is crap. If you really want something in your life you are going to make it happen and you are going to make time for it to happen.
You can meditate in 5 minutes or several hours. It is all up to you. I am so grateful for meditation coming into my life. It has really made hidden parts of the best of who I am come alive. With my goals of distance, eating better and losing some weight; meditation plays such a healthy role. It is not going to make the pounds disappear but it can make you put the Little Debbie’s down and rethink what you are doing with your life and live healthier.
I do however owe the lose of 15lbs so far to meditation, positivism, gratitude, and hard work of course, but I am not done yet. I heard it takes 21 days to make something routine….it is the 22nd day and I am still going strong on my goals (click here for April goals). This is only one fragment of my life that meditation has benefited it. I owe a lot to meditation period!
Meditation is super easy, take some deep breaths and listen to some really calming music. But seriously look it up try it out.
