Meditate to make your world a better place. It doesn't have to cost any money, can take as little as 10 minutes and you can do it anywhere. There is nothing else in life that gives you this much benefit in return for a minimal investment of time.
Meditate for You
Meditation improves your mind, body and soul. Quieting your mind and body gives them a much-needed rest. When you are done, your mind is refreshed and ready to take on whatever your day brings. You will be amazed at how much easier it is to deal with the everyday stresses of work and home. Your body will be relaxed, aches and pains will diminish and you will be better able to handle physical and mental activities. Your very soul will feel rejuvenated.
Meditation focused on emotional, physical or spiritual healing is extremely beneficial. It can be practiced exclusively or combined with recommendations from a health practitioner to hasten recovery from an injury or illness. Many health practitioners recommend meditation to help speed up recovery. They also recommend it to help alleviate pain during recovery or as part of a pain-management routine for people with painful lifelong conditions.
Types of meditation that can be done anywhere, including sitting at your desk in the office:
- Mindfulness meditation
- Zen meditation
- Vipassana meditation
- Loving kindness or Metta meditation
- Mantra meditation
- Yoga meditation
Mindfulness meditation doesn't even require quiet alone time. It can be practiced while you are walking and interacting with others.
Transcendental meditation requires a bit more time and effort. It will also probably require a monetary investment. While other types of meditation can be easily learned for free, transcendental meditation must be learned from a licensed practitioner.
Meditate for Your Loved Ones
Your loved ones will also benefit when you routinely meditate. Regular meditation will help you balance your career and personal life. You will be more loving, reasonable and understanding because you are more balanced and healthy in your mind, body and soul. You will no longer feel put-upon when your loved ones express a need for more time with you. When you feel better, making sure you have time for your loved ones will become second nature. You may find yourself wondering why it used to seem like such a chore.
Meditate for Your Co-workers
Interacting with your co-workers and getting work done will become easier for you with regular meditation. When you are stressed, your mind stops working efficiently and effectively as well as your body. This state of being makes everything more difficult. It is a bit like expecting a computer to work efficiently when the hard drive needs to be cleared of unnecessary temporary files or a vehicle to run smoothly when there's moisture in the fuel line. Your mind will function with ease when you meditate regularly, making the completion of tasks seem almost effortless. You will grasp concepts more easily, readily understand what needs to be done and how to do it and have more realistic expectations of your co-workers.
