Meditation and Mindfulness, Is It Right For You?

Sit down in a comfortable chair with your hands on your thighs close to your knees, turn the palms upwards and take a deep breath closing your eyes as you do so. Now breath out slowly and as you breath out relax starting with your feet, the legs and then the arms and body all the while breathing in and out in a nice gentle rhythm. As you relax empty the mind and try to reflect deeply on being calm, collected and totally at peace with the world around you as you enter a state of meditation and mindfulness.  

Meditation and Mindfulness isn’t new, it has been around for thousands of years and over the years has been used by knowledgeable people to help those who have mental health issues, problems like depression, anger, and anxiety.

Meditation can be used by anyone, regardless of their age, ability or beliefs.

By becoming more aware and able to think in a more rational way it makes you become a more optimistic person with a greater tendency to discard negative thoughts and so think more positively about your thoughts and actions.

Meditation and breathing properly when practised on a regular basis can reduce your stress levels within moments allowing a person to live in a healthier way and coping with confidence with life’s problems.

Mindfulness and Meditation have a tendency to make a person “stop and smell the roses”, stopping them from rushing around everywhere and causing themselves more stress and anxiety and therefore they are not seeing all the good things life has to offer.

If you slow down you will become more relaxed, with a feeling of contentment and more appreciative of life.

Meditation and Mindfulness when practised regularly helps people to understand situations better and this can lead them to make better judged decisions and thereby making them more aware of themselves and what they have to offer society.

Health and relationships often improve over time for people who are relaxed and positive about life.
