Everyone gets those feelings of anxiety and restlessness, especially after work. You try endlessly to stop it, even seek medication, but really all you needed was about 20 minutes by yourself being thoughtless. Yes, this is something called meditation. This practice has taken place for many years, and has been forgotten, shrouded by our busy lives and constant buzzing of our phones. Mediation was used by the Native Americans and is still used to this day by Buddhists and others who seek inner peace.
This practice is known to help relaxation and reduce stress, among other great benefits. Clearing your mind and not focusing on your work or what you’re going to make for dinner will help you regain control of yourself and life. Taking time out of your day in the morning to meditate just 15-30 minutes will induce relaxation, reduce stress, and promote your own happiness and well-being.
You never know, meditation could have been what you needed all along, and the best part is that it’s 100% free! You don’t need anything to meditate, just a clear mind and fresh air to breathe.
