Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It’s a way of entering into the quiet that’s already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.
– Deepak Chopra
Meditation allows one to clear their mind and forget all their worries even if only for a minute. When one returns from their quiet time, their worries don’t seem so insurmountable and things are in better perspective.
Meditation stops the nonsensical mental chatter and tunes in to an inner voice of wisdom.
Listen to your inner voice and see the true nature of things.
Meditate your way to happiness.
Benefits of Meditation
According to the 2010 study “The benefits of meditation vis-à-vis emotional intelligence, perceived stress and negative mental health,” meditation improves emotional intelligence (EI) and reduces perceived stress and negative mental health.
“The ﬁndings conﬁrm that meditation not only generates a direct effect for balancing its practitioners’ psychological state of health, but also has an indirect effect in terms of enhancing their psychological well-being by storing up high EI and maintaining a positive attitude towards perceived stress” (Chu 2010).
Simply put, meditation can lead to higher levels of happiness by creating a more positive perspective.
