What Is Meditation and Why Meditate?
Meditation is, simply put, the art of silencing the mind. It encompasses a variety of practices that are somewhat different, but in essence they all hold to the basic principles of consideration and quiet thought to bring about a state of serenity and clarity.
- Meditation helps you to focus better
Through meditation you practice to focus your attention and to be aware of when it drifts. When you meditate regularly, this “exercise” actually helps you focus better even when you’re not meditating, as your brain gets trained to concentrate on one thing. With time, the results of meditation can become permanent. You also become more productive, especially in creative disciplines, as your mind learns to focus on the thing in front of you, and nothing else.
