The Benefits of Meditation – Just do it!

A lot of people have the idea that Meditation is difficult or time consuming. Or that it’s not worth doing unless you do at least 20 minutes twice a day. Or that you must sit cross-eyed and cross-legged in a lotus posture, ideally with a turban. Not true.

I for one can promise you that you do not need to do a lot for a lot to change.

Meditation is a bit like magic. It lowers your stress levels and makes your heart healthier. It makes you happier. It makes you feel more connected to others and the world. It improves your focus and your creativity. It improves your immune system and it helps you to stay in the moment, away from worries about the future or guilt about the past.

All this is backed up by science. There is a very good reason why many of the most successful people on the planet are consistent meditators. Because it works.

You can do it anywhere, wearing whatever you like to wear and as little as 5 minutes a day can have a big effect. Even every other day or just every time you remember to do it.

The only thing you should really try to do is to keep your spine straight when you meditate. It is very helpful for the flow of the subtle energies. If you can not keep your spine straight just do what you can do and don’t worry about it.
