Inlay man’s terms, meditation is the pursuit of learning how to pay attention and focus. It is an endeavour to align the mind with perceiving everything in life, without any judgement or preconceived notion. It helps to strike a balance between the body and mind and thereby bring about calm and focus. This is helpful in bringing in emotional well-being and overall better health. And these benefits do not end when your meditation sessions end. Meditation can help carry you more calmly through your day and may help you manage your symptoms of certain medical conditions. When you meditate, you are able to clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress. The emotional benefits of meditation are immense, which, in turn, help in reducing the anxiety levels of the body. Meditation helps in gaining a perspective on stressful situations. It is an excellent manoeuvre to build a skill set to manage the stress by increasing self-awareness. Regular practice of meditation helps the mind to focus on the present and thereby eradicate negative thoughts. It is also known to increase patience and tolerance.
