Well-being through Meditation

Well-being can be improved through Meditation. 

Regular practice helps cultivate calmness and stillness an antidote for stress and anxiety.

Meditation helps improve wellness and well being . Mindfulness is a skill that can developed by training the mind to be in the moment (Puddicombe, 2015) .

Yoga, walking, eating, painting, and most of all sitting still (meditation) are tools to cultivate mindfulness.

There is an array of techniques or skills that can help an individual develop a routine in meditation, based on personal preference. All it needs is being kind and companionate to yourself while learning the new skills. Similar to learning a set of new skills, meditation too should be practiced regularly, this can usually range from 3 mins to an hour, in a place of your choice which provides you with a sense of safety and comfort.

While the origins of meditation can be founds in the Indian Vedic tradition and followed by Buddhism, over the years alternative techniques that are secular in their practice have been developed.

There is a great deal of research and scientific study that supports the benefits of meditation, much of which can be found on the web.

Can meditation improve well-being ?

In my experience, the most valuable benefit meditations provides is our ability to be in the moment. Regular meditation practice helps cultivate calmness and stillness an antidote for stress and anxiety. Being fully present in any given situation expands our awareness and enriches the experience. It also enables heart and mind coherence thus reducing our emotions and feelings get the better of us.
