Meditation has become rather a buzzword again in recent times, as its popularity increases in the western world. Having been 'hijacked' by the hippy and New Age movements, and because of its association with various religions, it has been perhaps misunderstood and made overly-complicated as to what the practice of meditation actually involves, and why you would want to do it.
Meditation is quite simply a wonderful method of caring for your mental health, resting your brain, and nurturing your mind and soul.
In our modern world, we are bombarded by external factors, including social media and television, financial pressures, work, demands, social pressures ... the list of overwhelm could go on and on.
Meditation requires no particular beliefs, no prior skills, no equipment. Just some time to invest in yourself, in your wellbeing, and a willingness to learn to appreciate peace, calm and stillness, even if just for a few moments of your day. You don't need to be able to sit in the 'lotus' position, or even on the floor ... a chair is just fine!
The benefits are numerous and cumulative, and ultimately include clearer thinking, better concentration, more positive thoughts, improved sleep, feelings of self-acceptance and inner peace.
