SOME PEOPLE THINK meditation is weird or something that one might do when one is bored, and that it is difficult to practice.
In fact, we all already practice some form of meditation – allowing our thoughts to wander, almost sub-consciously sifting through the chatter in our minds while actually focussing on an activity – yoga, swimming, even just walking. Think of it as ‘moving meditation’. Ask yourself how you feel mentally after that session and I suspect many will say calmer, more clear-minded, mentally refreshed, etc. That is the fundamental aim of meditation and its benefits can profoundly affect your mental health.
Reduce Stress Levels: The momentum of thoughts can make us feel uncomfortable, sad or powerless about a situation, causing stress and anxiety.
