Meditation matters—here’s why.
Meditation is challenging to most people at first—but well worth the effort. The first obstacle to overcome for many is how to get started.
You may find reading Top 10 Best Tips on How to Meditate a helpful way to begin. Over time, you’ll find that meditation practice can lead to a more joyful and positive outlook on life. Commitment to this practice can help us access our own innate sense of well-being and enable us to be present and attentive to whatever is happening—right now.
Meditation is about suspending judgment and being committed to the present moment. The irony is that we are actually never anywhere but the present. Yet our minds tend to struggle with this reality, jumping all over the place, recalling past events, anticipating future outcomes and churning over tough personal situations. By not being aware of the present moment, we can become mired in detrimental emotional patterns.
By practicing the meditation ideas offered in Mindworks blogs and free mindfulness meditation App we can learn to watch our minds—guiding our attention back to the breath and to the present moment. Through meditation we come to realize we don’t have to remain stuck in self-imposed limitations—rather we have the ability to change our circumstances for the better by working with our minds. Through mindfulness practice we become healthier, have less stress and anxiety and are able to develop an improved sense of focus and productivity. Through awareness practice we become more flexible and understanding, and gradually discover an innate sense of well-being that leads to a positive and more joyful experience of life. Thankfully, the benefits of meditation are numerous and well documented—we only have to begin meditating to open ourselves to all its possibilities.
Can I really practice meditation with an App?
