Meditation: The Ultimate Cure?

By on November 17, 2014

Sit still, and be amazed at what happens.

Today I want to share some exciting discoveries with you.

Chances are very good that you’ve tried meditation, but did you know how good it is for you? You might be surprised.

Research has been pointing to the powerful benefits of meditation for years, and a recent study cited in the Journal of the American Medical Association speaks to this.

The scientists found that meditation can help ease anxiety, depression, and pain when done consistently.

Another study found that meditating just a modest amount may help curb cigarette smoking, even in smokers who don’t intend to quit.

After a few hours of meditation, smokers puffed significantly less and had increased activity in brain regions associated with self-control — without even knowing that their behavior had changed.

Less anxiety, less depression, less chronic pain, AND less cigarettes. How cool!

So what does this mean for you?

It means that you have an amazing ability to cure yourself. Just by sitting still.

With regular practice, things that have bothered you or caused you hardship for years can fade away into happiness.

I see a lighter, more joyful tomorrow for you, no matter where you are. And it begins with just 15 minutes a day.

Take a nice breath right now to get a head start, and have a great week.

Stress Release Tip

Take responsibility for what is happening in your life. When we claim 100% responsibility for everything that happens, we shift from a victim mindset into one of empowerment. 100% means no blaming others for your unhappiness, even when you could so easily make a case for it. 100% means seeing today’s circumstances as a series of choices you made long ago coming to fruition. 100% means congratulating yourself on being such a badass. Rock on!

Mindful Moment

This is technique used by emergency workers to counteract tunnel vision. Sit quietly. Pay attention not to what’s in front of you but to the periphery of your vision: the sides, up, and down. As your attention naturally and inevitably comes back to the center, gently bring it back to the periphery. Repeat this a few times, for about 5 minutes. Use this to familiarize yourself with the power of a focused mind. Mindful awareness is focus.

Quote From Adam

“Look within. Be still. Free from fear and attachment, know the sweet joy of the way.”
– Buddha
