We are creatures of habits and there are good habits and there are bad habits.
But then there are the best habits which can tremendously change your life and meditation is the best of best of all these habits.
The benefits of meditation:
Meditation is so useful because it increases your willpower and self-control which you can use to build other good habits.
Meditation will help you become more self-aware and studies have shown that meditation can increase grey matter in your brain.
Meditation can also be very useful for recovering addicts.It is the most useful habit a recovering addict can develop.
Meditation will eventually make you free of your own brain and you will eventually become more conscious of your own thoughts and actions.
It will also make your brain more calmer and more peaceful.
And the only way to become truly happy in life is by mindfulness and you can become more mindful through meditation.
Meditation will make you more kind.
Meditation will increase your attention span.
In the end the most solid reason for meditating is it will increase your self-control and make you a better person more than any other habit and you can use that self-control to start building other good habits.It’s a loop.
The dark side of meditation:
Meditation it isn’t all rainbow and fairies.Meditation can take you to the places you don’t want to go,make you see things you don’t want to see but that’s okay because if you want to improve yourself you have to endure pain and suffer.
You could experience disassociation(which I personally experienced),anxiety,horrible thoughts etc.
I am telling you this because you can know that it’s part of the process and it’s normal and not something that only you are experiencing.
Meditation will show you that how much of a bad person you are because you will be much aware of your thoughts.
How to do it:
There are many styles of meditation and you can learn them on youtube and on the internet but personally mindfulness meditation is the simplest,easiest and the best one for me.
