The Power Of Meditation To Reduce Stress

A stressed person lives in a state that restricts creation, flow and abundance.  Have you ever been super stressed and you end up hitting your toe on the end of the bed, you forget to attend an appointment and on top of that you lose sleep?  How can anyone create with all of that happening?!

“You have power over your mind – not outside events.  Realise this, and you will find strength”

– Marcus Aurelius

If you plan to add meditation into your day, you will begin to see subtle shifts that will create big impacts in your life.  People have been meditating for centuries.  It is not a ‘new age’ craze.  It is one of the easiest, efficient and cost effective thing to do if you are wanting to find inner peace, relax and just align your thoughts.  You can meditate any way you like; walking, jogging, sitting down, listening to guided meditations, affirmations, visualisations or just to sit in silence.

My mind is my most valuable asset.  I’ve had my fair share of stress and challenges over the past couple of years and when your mind is not at its best it affects all aspects of your life:  Your health, financials, family, friendships – everything!  So this is why I do daily ‘flossing’ of my mind by sitting down and meditating each morning. 

When your mind is on its ‘A’ game, everything begins to fall into place.  So keep your mental health in check.

Why meditation?  Because, it’s so easy.  You can do it for 1 minute or 1 hour or more! You don’t need to pay anyone to do it.  And it’s flexible to what you want to do.  There is no such thing as a ‘bad’ meditation sit.  Even if you had 5 seconds of peacefulness in your mind, that is fantastic!

Why should you do it daily rather than only when you’re feeling stressed and everyone is getting on your nerves???  Because, by doing it daily – you will find that you won’t get irritated as much and for as long a period when you’re feeling stressed and everyone is getting on your nerves.  Yes, you’re still going to be human and yes you’re still going to get annoyed at the checkout chick for being super slow – but the thing is – it will happen less and for a shorter period of time! 

And – you will be nicer to people!  And people will be nicer to you (hopefully).

That’s all I have to say for now: Meditate daily.
