The mental stillness created by meditation balances the mind and senses, which in turn relaxes the nervous system. The result of regular meditation improves both the mental and physical state. Topics we’ll cover during the Meditation Challenge include:
How meditation affects the brain
What mindfulness is, and the difference between meditation and mindfulness
The many benefits of meditation
Different ways to meditate, as well as how to incorporate the practice into your everyday life
By learning to meditate, you learn to observe the world around you, as well as your reactions to your surroundings without judgment. Once you accomplish this, you’ll be able to understand your own feelings better and create a healthier, more in-touch relationship with your mind and the way it operates.
Put simply, meditation is a way to train your mind to focus on the present, instead of allowing it to stray toward worry about the future, or dwelling on the past.
Meditation gives us the tools to be less stressed, and to be calmer and kinder to ourselves and the people we surround ourselves with. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn more about the ways that you can use meditation improve your life!
