Hey there Dharma Viber,
Hope all is well & good with you during these times. Most people think that meditation is only useful to yogis in South East Asia - this is far from the case! Meditation is beneficial to anyone who is patient enough to give it a try. Let's take a look at all of the benefits of meditation:
1.) Meditation can help treat physical illnesses
Meditation is scientifically proven to help treat conditions like cancer, high blood pressure and insomnia. It can serve as a powerful side-remedy to use in addition to Western medicine.
2.) Meditation shows you different perspectives
Life is full of surprises, and one of the most useful ways of dealing with them is by meditating. I can't tell you how many times I got a new perspective on something just by meditating on it.
3.) Meditation reduces stress & anxiety
We all have enough stress and anxiety, especially during these times. Anything that has the possibility of lowering these unwanted emotions is fine by me, and it should be fine by you, too.
4.) Meditation increases creativity & imagination
Life requires thinking outside the box, and often times, the most creative people are the best at dealing with problems. Give yourself an intellectual advantage using meditation.
5.) Meditation increases self-awareness
A healthy dose of self-awareness is needed to function, and meditation provides it for us. By becoming more self-aware, we can better address our own issues, and overcome them in a healthy way.
