11 Benefits of Daily Meditation

Whether it’s done formally in a separate room or laying in your bed for the first 10 minutes upon waking up, or sitting in your chair right after a shower – daily meditation has innumerable documented benefits.

Do your own 30 day challenge where you keep track by marking off a calendar. Find the best time that works for you, this will usually be early in the morning when there are the least amount of disruptions and distractions. Next, get comfortable and just simply focus on your breathing. If you’re having a difficult time getting started, or maintaining a quiet mind – then just start at 5 minutes for the first day and add a minute a day. Whatever you do, don’t criticize or try to judge how successful you are being in the process. Just do it. Visualize your breath entering and leaving your lungs, over and over and over again. This moment of peace is yours. Create it.

  2. Have retweeted you. I find 15 mins of meditation a day works wonders. I can always tell by my mood if I haven’t managed to fit it in. I don’t have a specific time of day, just as and when.

  3. A number of years ago I went to physiotherapy for back and neck problems due to job-related issues. I was not using pain-reducing medications but the psychologist at the clinic recommended that the patients in this session practice image guided meditation on a daily basis.

    There was one session in particular where everyone in the room meditated together for a 30 minute session. We sat comfortably in our recliners and were directed by the therapist in meditating. After this introductory session we were given a CD entitled , “Calm and Confident based on Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)” created by Mark Grant MD an Australian psychologist in private practice at the time in Sydney and Melbourne Australia.

    This psychological treatment works by turning off negative emotions underlying problems such as anxiety and trauma. Many of the folks in this therapy session were tense and traumatized by the aches and pains of their physical injuries.The sounds and the music on the tape readily captivates your attention and the time devoted daily to using it is a welcomed relief. You do not need to be a pain sufferer to use it.

    If anyone is interested in experiencing a free session of the tape there is a location they can visit( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDKXi38mm_s) which is a brief session. They may also send their inquiries to info@TherapistsResources.com orvisit the site themselves at (www.TherapistResources.com).

    I have been using the therapeutic tape for the pastnumber of years and find it calming and a more fitting approach to pain than medications.

  4. Meditation and mindfulness is another technique that I use as a psychotherapist with clients. If you are interested in mindfulness, EMDR or meditation, seek a therapist in your area who specializes in this area to get you started.
    Great post.

  5. I meditate for health reasons, it is wonderful at ‘resetting’ me and giving me the energy to carry on with the day. Great post, couldn’t agree with it more.

  6. Thank you for posting these simple steps to Meditation. I’m looking forward to starting today 🙂 It it’s OK with you, I will be reblogging on my Blog too 🙂

  7. Yes, daily meditation does wonders. I have gone from an angry, scatter brained person prone to lose my temper to someone who can focus on the tiniest thing for however long I am required. Getting through the normal challenges that we all face has become much easier since I can take time away from whatever the stress is and just BE.
    Thank you for sharing.

  8. this is great information. I just finished a class not too long ago that talked about how we are so inundated with life that we are losing our joy. Meditation was one of the suggestions to return to a simple life and not be so stressed out. Blessings to you.

  11. Meditation is key in our daily life. It is only when we go in true silence that our mind de -clutters making way for all signs, messages and answers which the universe has for us.

  12. Wow, really inspirational blog! So glad to be introduced to you via your visit to xballerina! I practice the Transcendental Meditation technique, and it is essential to keeping my balance as an artist and person. I don’t always make the time for it I should, and definitely notice the difference. How wonderful that this is becoming a more main stream idea in the Western world. Just in case you are interested to check out the TM technique, here’s a link. Many celebrities practice, like Jerry Seinfeld and Oprah Winfrey. Anyway Cheers and come by my blog for some inspiration and thoughtfulness of the artistic persuasion:)
