DEVELOPING MINDFUL AWARENESS FOR BETTER MENTAL HEALTH
ALLEVIATING NEGATIVE STATES OF MIND SUCH AS:
Meditation is a way of stabilising the mind via a series of techniques using an object, which we refer to as an anchor, to focus our attention on to. Meditation has been practised for thousands of years and almost every culture in every country will have some form of meditation practice. Meditation is popular because it is like a tonic for the ills of our mind. We spend a large portion of our time with our minds engaged thinking and problem solving. Our minds can often get busy with too much activity to the point where it can make us for sick and we display symptoms such as Restlessness, Worry, Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia and even addiction to drink and drugs. The latter two are often used as a way of running away from our minds by changing our mode of consciousness.
Meditation provides us with some sanctuary and relief from the thinking, problem solving mind. It enables us to let go of our addiction to overthinking and provides us with a resource to recharge our internal batteries.
"When you change the way you see things, the things you see change"
We suffer when we identify with negative thoughts, feelings and emotions. Meditation is like a microscope for the mind and a regular daily practice has the power to change how we think and how we behave. It is our birth right to be happy and Meditation is one of the most powerful of ways of developing a happier, healthier version of ourselves.
