Meditation can be a useful tool for reducing stress, lessening anxiety, increasing your ability to focus, and can improve your memory. Another bonus: it's free and can be done anywhere.
While meditation can be done anytime, there are some great benefits to starting your day with meditation. Here are some reasons why you should start your day with meditation...
The first hour of your day can set the tone for how the rest of your day goes.
Ever feel like your mind is on overdrive? Calm the "monkey mind" and negative thoughts with a morning meditation. Start your day with awareness to lead yourself to a more intentional and proactive day.
Meditating in the morning makes it less likely you'll skip it! Making it a priority in your day will lead to a more consistent practice. More practice = more benefits.
Jumpstart your parasympathetic nervous system to physiologically give your body a break. Meditation can lower your blood pressure, heart rate and breathing to help you have a more calm and relaxed state.
Take control of your day by starting it intentionally. Meditation helps you train your mind to see things more clearly, and be able to cut through negative thoughts.
Meditation can help you see the big picture. Stillness can allows to gain clarity and see through the everyday chaos that can cause us to lose perspective of the big picture.
