Meditation is for all

When we think of meditation we usually picture a monk in a faraway country in Asia or some privileged person like u actor who has time to do practice at dawn. Most of us don’t meditate because we consider it useless, because we think we don’t have the time, because we are so stressed that meditating would be an added stress, because we would rather sleep an extra half hour and then we are always late, because we have other things to think about, because we don’t need to, because you have kids or the house to fix before you go out, because if he/she doesn’t know anyone who does it there must be a good reason, because at home he/she would think he/she is crazy, because he/she tried it but it’s not for him/her, because he/she doesn’t even have time to eat breakfast in the morning, because he/she thinks it doesn’t do any good, because it doesn’t help solve problems, and so on.

They are not aware that meditating is a way to take care of ourselves and to guide our thoughts on a path that improves our well-being.

In that sense, meditating is taking a thought that we like and developing it, expanding it until it uniquely and totally occupies our mind. Meditating allows us to be focused on one thought at a time with the goal of promoting well-being.

Research has shown that the positive effects of meditation show up clearly after adding up 30 hours of practice. So if a person practiced for 15 minutes for 6 days a week, after 3 months he or she would see the first improvements in his or her mood and psychological condition, which would stabilize over the following months. Of course, this activity is suggested for people who do not suffer from psychological disorders and who, instead, should follow a psychotherapeutic course with a professional.
