World is now realizing the need for “Mental Health”. Do you know why there is a need ? It is because of the growing stress in our lives. Fortunately, the world is now adopting the ancient way of getting rid of stress i.e. Meditation. One of the fact that I loved while researching more is that the people meditating in the USA tripled from 4.1% in 2012 to 14.2% in 2017. (Source https://www.nccih.nih.gov/). Isn’t that incredible ?
Apart from reducing the stress and boosting your mental health, below are 3 reasons why you should meditate right now:
- Satisfaction: When we were studying in school/college, we were instilled with the idea that earning money will make us satisfied. But even the people with millions of dollars suffer from dissatisfaction in their lives. Where money, relationships, partying does not give us satisfaction, Meditation comes with promising results of inner satisfaction in life.
“Satisfaction comes from deep rest, by reposing deep within oneself. When you get established within your Self, then there is contentment. The satisfaction you think that comes by doing some work is very temporary and lasts only for a short while.” – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
- Meaningful Relationships: Ups and downs happen in every relationship. Arguments on the smallest things to the biggest thing happens often in a relationship. Guess what, most arguments start because of our inability to listen(mindfully). After every resolution, we say “I will understand you in a better way.” When you promise that you will understand what you are trying to say is I will listen to what you are saying in a better way. Meditation makes your mind empty of unwanted thoughts. Less the thoughts in the mind, better you listen, lesser the arguments and your relationship blooms.
“The key to a happy relationship is based on how we handle our mind. We must learn how to calm our minds and relax, for a few moments every day.” – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
- Freedom: With the luggage of stress that we carry around our whole lives, we tend to lose our freedom. How can one be free if his/her mind is each moment occupied with thoughts which he/she does not even want? Meditation takes away your stress. It brings back your naturalness. And when you are natural, you are free.
“Meditation, indeed, is an amazing path to experiencing freedom. Meditation offers a “freedom from” and “freedom to” in both business and personal life.” – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
