It makes me real­ize that I am not my thoughts. It gives me an oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn to be present in the moment.

For me, before I start my work day, I take 10 mins to med­i­tate at my desk before start­ing any task. It seems small, but it’s that 10 mins of total relax­ation of your mind that com­plete­ly jump starts my day to focus on any tasks at hand. Also, I just feel amaz­ing with giv­ing myself that moment to col­lect my thoughts. Be in con­trol of YOUR hap­pi­ness jour­ney. You’ve got this! 🤗

I have a very hard time to make the “med­i­ta­tion habit” stick. So I have nev­er expe­ri­enced any med­i­ta­tion-linked ben­e­fits.

I per­son­al­ly have a reminder for every hour of the day. When that beeps, I drink but of water, med­i­tate for cou­ple of sec­onds with 3 long breaths and thank God in gen­er­al. And so when­ev­er a sit­u­a­tion aris­es or when I have start on some work or duty or job, I do the same thing and it helps you to be more pos­i­tive and focused since you are already train­ing your­self to con­cen­trate on your breath and grat­i­tude every hour pos­si­ble

It cre­ates dis­tance between me and my thoughts and feel­ings. I am not my thoughts or feel­ings and they are not absolute truth. Med­i­ta­tion helps rec­og­nize them as they come up and to acknowl­edge them as just a thought or just a feel­ing.

A quick morn­ing med­i­ta­tion can help remem­ber­ing the big pic­ture and what’s impor­tant to you. If you set the inten­tion for the day it’s less like­ly that you get lost in every­day prob­lems. Let’s say your goal is to live abroad and for that you have to learn the lan­guage of your tar­get coun­try. You go to work in the morn­ing and get caught up in your dai­ly tasks. After work you tell your­self that it was a tough day, you just want to watch TV and eat a piz­za as a reward. But if you remind your­self in the morn­ing that your real goal is to leave this job and trav­el to a new coun­try to start a new life, that gives you extra ener­gy to work towards that goal and spend some time on learn­ing that lan­guage.
Med­i­tat­ing in the evening can help you process the events of the day, process the emo­tions that those events made you feel and this way you will be more relaxed and also more aware of your own feel­ings and thoughts.

Med­i­ta­tion allows me to focus with­in where true peace lies. It gives me strength to face life and keep my feet on the ground

Prac­tic­ing med­i­ta­tion trains one’s brain abil­i­ty to stay focused on one thing. By notic­ing when atten­tion shifts from pay­ing atten­tion to the breath to some­thing else, peo­ple who med­i­tate cul­ti­vate an aware­ness of their thoughts.
