Meditation – What is it? What isn’t it? Why do it? Meditation can be more energising than sleep if you do it in the right way. You don’t need to be some far East mystical guru to practice the art of meditation. You can do it no matter where you are and it can only take 5 minutes. But it does take practice.
The way I look at meditation is that it’s like recharging your cell phone. When your cell phone starts running low on juice it tells you. An icon flashes or it beeps when it’s really close to ‘dying’. So what do you do? You go and plug it into the wall and charge it up again.
TIME TO RECHARGE
Now think about this – if you continue using your cell phone whilst simultaneously charging it then it may never reach its full energy levels again. So what most of us do is when we charge our cell phone we just leave it somewhere for a few minutes and don’t touch it. Your cell phone is left alone to recharge and get back to full energy levels to serve you again.
It’s the same with your mind and body. If you try to bulldoze through the entire day without ever stopping to take a break you are doing yourself no favours whatsoever.
GET A BIG BREAK IN LIFE BY TAKING SMALL ONES
I never used to grasp this concept. I thought taking breaks and chilling out were for wimps
But now I realise that when I recharge my batteries throughout the day it’s like awaking and starting afresh. Seriously – I can do just 30 minutes meditation and afterwards have more energy than I had right at the start of the day By incorporating meditation into my daily routine my batteries are always full and I’m able to maintain high levels of momentum in my life at all times.
I can work through from 06:30 to 11PM at night in this way and not feel overly tired. I also still have energy to do two hours’ exercise in this time as well – another great way to increase your energy levels and maintain your momentum.
The key here is to remember the PURPOSE of why you are meditating throughout th e day – don’t just take time out to chill out for no reason. Like everything in life – when you attach a purpose to it meditation becomes dramatically more powerful and can aid you even more.
I now set aside various times throughout my week for different meditation-purposes. Sometimes I meditate to purely relax and de-stress.
A MEDITATION MENU?
Other times I meditate and focus on being more creative and producing new money-making business ideas.
On occasions I will meditate with the sole purpose of designing a better future for myself.
But the lesson here is that your meditation and restful periods must have a purpose. When you get a purpose behind your resting times then you can actively design them to be more effective and also start to measure their outcomes for you and tailor them accordingly.
However are you going to know if you had a great meditation or a mediocre meditation if you never set a purpose and standard for it in advance?
Above all else when it comes to resting time and meditation I would say just go with the flow. There are so many books, courses and DVDs out there that it can become overwhelming.
JUST HAVE FUN
All you need to remember is that you are using this tactic to empty your mind of worrying or annoying thoughts and focusing on the positive about yourself and the restful during your life at this time.
Being too hyper-aware of a particular meditation-technique can be off-putting when really all you need to do is slowly control your breathing and let your mind zone out.
Sound easy? It is That’s the secret
