Benefits of daily meditation and how it helps you in everything
Overall Benefits: How Meditation Helps
Calmness and clarity
Based on my own experiences practicing meditation, I see meditation as bringing stillness, training the mind and bringing calmness to the mind, spirit, soul, and the body. I find clarity within the mind in order to see and know things that are for my better good.
Releasing of mental burdens
Meditation helps to ease the many mental burdens especially during those times when I felt lost. Feeling lost is a myriad of unsteady emotions that make you feel not at ease, unable to find comfort within. It feels like the mind is consistently running and my mind, soul, spirit and body are detached.
While this feeling is awful and meditation is the last thing in your mind, just sit still and focus on your breathing. Time after time, meditation helped to bring stillness within my mind and I found a sense of peace and calmness in my entire being after meditation. I saw a big difference in my health and wellbeing when I meditate, compared to those times when I did not meditate.
