Grownup Gripe: I’d do anything at this point to keep my mind off what’s going on out there right now.
If you’ve never meditated, you’re missing out.
Trust me, coming from the Midwest I used to think it was basically for Buddhist Monks and tree huggers out in CA or somewhere but it’s not.
It’s something that if you get past the stigma and really give it a try can be a game changer.
Personally I struggle with anger management and everything I read said meditation will help.
It does! Anxiety, stress, whatever you’re dealing with there’s a meditation out there, here is a list of benefits the Mayo Clinic lists.
Emotional Meditation Benefits
-Gain new perspective in stressful situations
-Build up skills to manage your stress
-Focus on the present
-Reduce negative emotions
-Increase imagination and creativity
-Increase patience and tolerance
Medical Conditions Meditation Can Benefit
-High Blood Pressure
-Irritable Bowel Syndrome
It’s usually a positive for stress relief but always talk to your healthcare professional.
Mediation fell into my lap when I found it on my new favorite app. I decided it wouldn’t hurt to try it and I wanted to get my money’s worth 😉
Almost immediately I noticed a difference; the easiest way I can say it is I was more in tune with my body and more mindful of my actions.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s also for those blessed with time or you’ll need to MAKE SOME TIME.
Only about 10 minutes-that’s all you need but it needs to be comfortable AND uninterrupted.
Literally after only a few minutes you’ll feel like a new person-more relaxed and less stressed!
Who doesn’t want that?
It’s a real treat to look forward to especially after running around after a 4 and 6-year-old.
If you’ve got a demanding job, annoying kids and/or spouse, whatever it is, it’s worth a shot.
It connects your mind, body and spirit. It’s good for the soul (shout out to Bob Seger ;-).
I actually found out Mama died as I was meditating so that put a fork in things for a bit.
My old-school Italian father who NEVER calls called so I knew when his Caller ID interrupted my session what news was on the other end.
Remember Mama had dementia…LINK
It almost ruined a good thing but I went back to it recently because it brings US all peace.
Not only do I notice but my whole family does so I look at meditation like mediation. It helps!
We can all use a little of that these days, right?
However you slice or dice it, if you carve out ten minutes and give it a whirl it could help.
But you’ll never know if you never give it a try!
