What is meditation?
Most people think of meditation as sitting barefoot, legs crossed and chanting ‘ohm’ for hours. Well, this is far from what meditation actually is.
Meditation is about paying attention and notice to your emotions without taking action. It’s about refocusing away from the self-indulgent patterns in your mind and taking back control of your thoughts.
Contrary to a common misconception, meditation is not about beliefs. No one will be asking you to leave some coins at the foot of some unknown deity. It’s about strengthening your concentration and focus.
The good thing about meditation is, you don’t have to take a journey to Tibet or India to visit the Buddhist or Hindu temples or join a monastery far away from the madding crowds for a life-changing meditation session. There are places in right here in the US that can offer you an incredible meditation retreat and help you decompress, reenergize and reconnect with yourself.
