A Few Thoughts on the Inner Workings of Meditation
Meditation can be a useful tool in your overall health and wellness. We live in an electronic society and most might find sitting in silence and tapping into their quiet consciousness a bit challenging at first.
Our culture revolves around smartphones, electronic applications, social media and selfies. Most people shudder at the thought of not having their phone in their hands during their waking hours. This is a new form of stress and anxiety we’ve created as a modern society. Life can be stressful at times due to school, work, finances, family and relationships. We’re bombarded with negative news stories from television, cable, radio, internet and social media.
The average person will process the stresses of life and not think twice about it, unfortunately some will turn to prescription medications, alcohol and drugs to alleviate depression and anxiety. When we are out of balance we seek peace and serenity in any form to make us feel better. Meditation will help you quiet your mind, center your spirit and balance your life.
