How To Be Happy (Part 6) – How To Meditate For Beginners

I’m going to start out with a bold statement.

Learning to meditate was one of the smartest decisions I ever made!

Why?

Just look at some of the substantial benefits that you can expect to receive by practicing meditation:

  • Better Focus
  • Lower Anxiety
  • More Compassion (for self and others)
  • Better Memory
  • Increased creativity
  • Reduced pain
  • Emotional control
  • Slow ageing-related effects on the brain
  • Accelerate cognition
  • Sharpen concentration
  • Better sleep
  • Improved sports performance
  • Deeper feelings of calm and inner peace

And all these (and more) come from a simple activity which can be done at anytime, involves no expensive equipment, chemicals, apps, books or other products.

It doesn’t require making big life changes. It doesn’t require changing the way you eat. It doesn’t require changing your religion. It doesn’t require moving to another country. It doesn’t require ditching alcohol or becoming celibate. You don’t have to burn incense or sit in a circle of crystals.

And it doesn’t even require the patience, dedication and endless free time of a Tibetan monk to get all those benefits.

Remarkable?

In today’s video I’m going to show you what happens in your brain when you meditate (this is where things get interesting) and tips for starting to practice this transformative discipline.

All you need is a few minutes out of your day.

    I tried to meditate before, and is how you said, sometime difficult to silence all those thoughts.
    But I have the toolkit and is easier indeed because is targeted meditation (or guided meditation as I read somewhere). I will try to meditate again to see what happen.

    • Hey Radu, I would suggest forget trying to silence the thoughts. It’s not the goal and I believe that’s a bit of a myth about meditation. With practice you’ll learn to detach from your thoughts (the inner noise) and be the observer of your thoughts. That’s when you realise you are not your thoughts. Just follow what I recommend with consistency and drop any expectations.

    I agree meditation is one of the best tools to self care on all levels. Wonderful series.

    🙂

    • Thanks Neetha. It’s defiantly one of the best habits I practice.
