Mental Declutter Habit : Meditation 먹튀검증사이트

“Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet.

It’s a way of entering into the quiet that’s already there

?buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average

person thinks every day.” ? Deepak Chopra

You don’t have to be a Buddhist, a mystic, or a crystal-

carrying ex-hippie to practice meditation. You can

belong to any spiritual or religious faith or have no

religious affiliation at all to reap the benefits of

meditation and use it as a tool for decluttering your

mind 먹튀사이트.

If you’ve never practiced meditation or you’re not

familiar with it, you might be put off by the idea of

sitting quietly in the lotus position and emptying your

mind. But don’t let the cliches about meditating cave

dwellers prevent you from giving it a try.

In his book 10% Happier, Dan Harris says, “Meditation

suffers from a towering PR problem…. If you can get

past the cultural baggage, though, what you’ll find is

that meditation is simply exercise for your brain.”

Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years

and originates in ancient Buddhist, Hindu, and

Chinese traditions. There are dozens of styles of

meditative practices, but most practices begin

with the same steps?sitting quietly, focusing

attention on your breath, and dismissing any

distractions that come your way.

The goal of meditation varies depending on the type of

meditation practice and the desired outcome of the

meditator. For our purposes here, we suggest

meditation as a tool to help you train your

mind and control your thoughts, both when you

are sitting in meditation and when you aren’t.

The benefits of meditating translate to your daily life,

helping you control worry and overthinking, and

providing a host of health benefits that we’ll discuss


The key to finding satisfaction with meditation

is simply to practice. By making a daily

commitment to meditation, you will improve your

skills and discover how the mental, physical, and

emotional benefits increase over time.

Barrie has noticed that, on the days she meditates, she

is less anxious and agitated and more focused in her

work, especially with writing. She has also noticed an

increased ability to stay in the present moment and

redirect herself back to the task at hand whenever she

feels tempted by a potential distraction. Finally, Barrie

uses short meditation breaks during the day to help her

relax during particularly stressful times.

The steps to meditating are simple and

straightforward, but the practice is not as easy as it

seems. You’ll discover that, at first, trying to quiet your

mind and maintain focus is like attempting to train

fleas. But the more you practice, the easier and more

enjoyable the experience becomes.
