I never believed in meditation until I sat down and actually tried it. I was feeling down and stressed out and was willing to try anything to calm me.
Not only did I feel calm, but I loved it. Taking that time to focus on your breathing and body is wonderful. It’s so peaceful and I recommend everyone try it.
- It can improve depression
- Reduces anxiety
- Increases your focus
- Reduces stress
- Increases your memory
- Can get rid of headaches
There are many more benefits to meditation. Those were just a few, but those few speak a million words. As someone who suffers from anxiety, it has helped me truly take a second to just breathe. When you’re dealing with anxiety, that’s something that you know is difficult to do. It can feel like you’ve been hit by a truck full of emotions and you don’t know why. When I’m really feeling overwhelmed, I will sit down in a quiet area and just meditate.
Not everyone knows how to meditate and I know I am one of those people. That’s why I listen to podcasts or videos, where people talk you through it. My favorite app so far has been Headspace. They have free videos that you can listen to, but you can also pay to have the premium version.
If you haven’t tried meditating yet, try it! It is one of the best ways to show yourself some love!
