Meditation brings focus and clarity in every aspect of our lives. Like working out, you may not realize its benefits instantly, but it may take you a few months or even years to truly reap its benefits.
In his book 10% Happier, Dan Harris mentions how meditation literally saved his life. He had a panic attack on national television and in a pursuit to better his life and well-being, he started practicing meditation. He mentions that meditation helped him not to react to situations, but instead respond to them. And I feel the same way after having meditated for years now. I feel like I have an invisible
shield around me. If something unfortunate happens to me or I get an unexpected blow, for instance being badly rejected, unlike previous times when it used to pierce into my body and hurt me, now I am protected from it. Don’t get me wrong, the pain is still there but it is much more manageable.
A practice of meditation comes with a wide spectrum of mental, physical and spiritual benefits such as reduced anxiety, better immune system, increased focus and clarity and a calm demeanor. Meditation plays an instrumental role in increasing our happiness and self-awareness, and a consistent practice can empower us to lead healthier lives and ensure our well-being in every respect.
