For thousands of years, people have been practicing meditation. Long before there was a need to “unplug from the world” as you frequently see mentioned today. While meditation is often thought of as a spiritual practice, it’s also very much a practical practice.
Regular meditation aids in self-development and personal growth. Because it involves focus and self-discipline, it has been reported to enhance performance for athletes and top business executives. It reduces stress, promotes healing, improves sleep, encourages mindfulness, reduces pain and eliminates anxiety. With inner peace and more self-awareness, you become calmer, grounded and more level headed. You become more conscious and present in life. You become more connected with your surroundings; the people, the things and the world around you.
