“When I meditate regularly and consistently, I truly become the best version of myself”
The Definition of Meditation
Meditation is a practice of concentrated focus upon a sound, object, visualization, the breath, movement, or attention itself in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth.
We are all aware of the pressure and stress that comes with living in our current society and providing for a family within that. I am increasingly aware of the incidence of men in my community experiencing anxiety and depression, being overwhelmed with responsibility and feeling disconnected and alone in their struggle to manage.
I believe that meditation is the most beneficial and effective tool available to combat this.
‘Meditation has been a skill and a tool which I now rely upon in everyday life. It has been my rock and something which I know I can rely upon to always make me feel happy’
How Meditation has IMPACTED my life
‘When I meditate regularly and consistently I am more compassionate, I am more present and ‘in the now’ in whatever I am doing. I am more giving and loving – to myself as well as to my family and friends. I spend more time on things that are truly important; I appreciate the beauty of nature all around me. I make better choices and surround myself with people that lift me up. I find myself having elevated motivation for more positive pursuits like exercise. My brain functions more effectively, I am more organised and planned. Work productivity is at an all-time high and stress levels low. I don’t get entangled in issues and activities or events which don’t serve me. I am more passionate about life. My artistic and creative sides seem to burst through me without even trying… and most importantly, I love and respect who I am. Meditation makes me feel happy to be alive and connects me to someone I truly love and appreciate. When I meditate, I am just a much better version of myself, it’s that simple’.
