Life punches us all at some moment, right in the face. It is a series of ups and downs. The impediments, difficulties and hardships are inevitable. In the stressful times we live in, it gets hard for everyone at some point or the other. We watch our world come tumbling down which paves the way for yearnings, the urge to just disappear but things don’t work that way or do they?
Something you feel getting this or that will make you the happiest person alive and when you actually get it, it just doesn’t feel that great. Things most of the times don’t turn out to be as we planned or expected. Disappointment settles in.
When we hit the rock bottom, it’s hard to see the positive side or to even believe there’s a flip side to the pain and distress we are experiencing. None of us are excited about the lows in our life but it is public knowledge that some people deal with it better than the others, meditation can help you do so. Meditation can help you instill fortitude and resilience in your own self.
Meditation isn’t just preparing you for rainy days; it improves your quality of life and thoughts at every conceivable level. You are composed, peaceful and full of gratitude. It is diving into the present and that dissipates half the problems we have because of either living in the past or future more than the present.
Meditation brings peace and optimism. When meditation is a part of your lifestyle, you find yourself at peace at all the times. The tranquility in you isn’t affected by outside circumstances. The turmoil can’t prey on you anymore, you overpower it. Both beautiful as well as terrible experiences come and go but the peace stays, forever.
Meditation is a stress-buster. Our problems and stress not only affect us but also the ones around us, people that are close to us, why? If you had a bad day at work, you are most likely to vent the frustration or anger out on the people close to you, you might act moody or you may say not-so -nice things to them.
Meditation helps you handle the stress better, improves your mood and focus, helps you stay in the present moment and live life to the fullest. You are more in tune with yourself.
The world is connected but we aren’t connected to ourselves. Most humans have lost touch with themselves and everything gets hard if you don’t know what you actually are and this is one of the most important aspects of meditation, to bring you more in touch with yourself and make you come to terms with who you are. It amplifies self-love and self-respect. You become more loving and more empathetic towards others as well. Kindness prevails in the meditative world. It elevates consciousness to a whole different level.
