Been quite caught up with this subject of late. Everyone is talking about it. So I decided to do a bit of browsing around. Not that I hadn’t heard of it before (duh) but didn’t really research it either. It was one of those ‘i have a positive feeling about it and will learn it one of these days’ kind of things. Well, the information I found on the Net (amen!) freaked me. Different types of Meditation, Different Methods, Osho, Chakra, Chinese, Transcendental Meditation – my head’s reeling. OK – so I have decided to learn. 🙂
Here’s a recap of Ten Benefits (due credit to someone – who send me a nice newsletter right to my mailbox)
- It’s enjoyable. Most people feel peaceful and relaxed during meditation. After meditating, you will feel calmer, more tranquil and have a greater sense of well-being.
- You get benefits quickly. You’ll begin to notice positive benefits within the first few days or weeks. And the benefits add up as the time goes by.
- Clearer thinking. Develop your full mental potential, improve your memory, enhance creativity and sharpen your intellect.
- Better Health. Become more rested and relaxed, increase immunity to disease, reverse the effects of aging, and enjoy greater energy and vitality.
- More Fulfilling Relationships. Enjoy closer friendships, increased calmness, more self-confidence, and less anxiety and stress.
- A Peaceful World. Contribute your share to world peace by reducing your own stress level and radiating an influence of harmony to your surroundings.
- Personal Growth. Experience Transcendental Consciousness at the quietest level of your mind, and grow toward higher states of consciousness—enlightenment.
- Success without stress. Do less and accomplish more in your professional life by increasing your creativity and effectiveness.
- Increased concentration. Your ability to focus and concentrate will improve and this will have a positive impact on your aptitude for studying and learning new material.

Nice, eh? Enjoy.
