Meditation benefits our mental, physical and emotional health.
With this training of attention and awareness, the mind returns to a natural, calm and clear state.
As this happens, perception changes. A deeper vision of reality is produced, transforming our internal perception and, consequently, also our external experience.
Among many other aspects, meditation improves: Our personal well-being (for example, increases serenity and reduces stress and anxiety).
Brain activity, neural connections and multiple effects on the body.
Relationships with others (becoming more assertive and empathetic).
We become less reactive, and more contemplative and wise.
It influences our performance.
It gives us lucidity and creativity for the resolution of daily problems (helping us to connect with the necessary resources or more conscious solutions).
It develops our potential.
However, you should have in mind some mental traps, as they could lead you to not continue with the meditation or show up during the practice. These traps of the mind are:
• Excuses (depreciation).
• Impatience. • Boredom.
• Putting ideas or beliefs into it.
• Make judgments about the experience or judge yourself.
If you’re going to meditate, you’re going to improve yourself.
You only need 1 minute a day to start cultivating this healthy habit, which will be really powerful in your life.
