Hey! Yes you! Come and bring me your attention for a moment. When is the last time you sat quiet? There is so much noise in the world today that sometimes it’s hard to hear yourself think.
As a Christian, I believe that we should always take time to just simply BE QUIET! (Yes I yelled be quiet)
This can also be called meditation. I want to share with you 3 benefits of taking the time to meditate.
1. Daily meditation reduces stress. You will notice that if you meditate every day, your stress levels will go down. If you meditate daily for a couple of months, you may not get stressed at all, or slightly stressed. Everyday meditation makes you see things differently. What seemed very important before no longer seems so. What you considered stressful in the past no longer appears so. This is because when you meditate, you understand that you well-being is more important than material things or events, so you naturally stop worrying about them.
2. Meditation gives you more energy. Meditation gives you access to an inner wealth of energy that most of us do not tap due to lack of consciousness. This energy cleanses your nerves and gives you more power. When you make daily meditation into a habit, you will no longer suffer from being drained in the middle of the day or feeling tired after little work.
3. Daily meditation increases your focus. If you have a short attention span and find it difficult to focus on things for more than a couple of minutes, meditation will help you extend your focus. When you meditate, you clear your head from thoughts and you stay in the same position for 15-30 minutes or more. This alone improves your focus because you engage in one activity for an extended period of time.
