What does meditation bring up for you? You might be thinking of a monk sitting in lotus position under a tree, and you might be comparing it to you last efforts at meditating in which you were face with the chaos inside your mind and concluded that you just can’t meditate.
Both of these are ways of looking at meditation and in other posts, I will go into more depth about what mediation can “Look” like and how to bring it into your life in a consistent and practical way.
For today, I am going to share with you three reasons why meditation is important. There are many more, I guarantee, but these are the three that come to mind for me immediately.
- Stress reduction – studies have shown that meditation can reduce blood pressure and other stress markers in the body
- Mind clarity – meditation can help you clear your mind. It might not seem like it at first, but even a few minutes of deep breathing with your eyes closed can calm some of the thoughts enough to gain a little clarity.
- Life Guidance – By going within through meditation consistently, you can then use that time to get clear on where you want to go, and from there, what you next small step is.
So, as you can see even if these were the only three benefits of meditation, why wouldn’t you want to start practicing today? Let me know in the comments below…
