The solutions to all of this aren’t easy. We have to make time for ourselves, time for our minds to settle and sort out the things that are important to us. Time to re-train our bodies and to think about the food we are putting into them. Time for gentle, correct exercise to re-adjust our bodies out of all those bad habits. We do have something to guide us to a more healthy place.
Let’s start by defining mediation. I define meditation very broadly as any mental exercise that incorporates both relaxation and focus. This practice has made its way into sports under the term, visualization. Visualization is a type of meditation that incorporates relaxation and focus on such visual concepts as the perfect golf swing, the perfect swim stroke, or just plain winning. Many Olympic athletes take time each day to relax and focus on receiving the gold medal. Does it work?
Relaxation response is similar to meditation in many ways but is more focused on the body rather than any spiritual element. It was devised by Dr. Herbert Benson. The aim is to start at the feet and work your way up to the head. Sit comfortably in a quiet place and concentrate on relaxing the muscles in your feet. Gradually imagine and then feel the muscles relaxing. They may feel warm as your concentration continues to focus on them. Once you feel that they are relaxed move onto the calves and so on until you reach the head. Focus on each body part and try to relax. Let all other thoughts, except the body part in question, fall away.
So now we know what meditation is and how to meditate, I also want to say why I feel it is good to meditate. Meditation gives this amazing peace and clarification effect in every days busy life. Using meditation, it is also possible to find out what it is that you were sent to do in this life. It really is answer to every question you might have when you become good at it.
