Ways to distinguish yourself – #94 Learn to meditate

The topic of mind-body connection has been written about endlessly. We all know that there is enough scientific evidence to establish the mind-body connection. If this is the case, it is in our best interest to keep our mind healthy. Meditation, I think is one easy way of doing just that!

According to available history, meditation has been practiced for thousands of years. As you can only imagine, there are variety of meditation techniques that have become popular. While I have read about a number of meditation techniques, I have not studied them deeply. Practicing what I know for the last few years has helped me to reduce stress and be calm and composed.

In its simplest form, meditation is an exercise where you try to “blank out” your mind. In other words, if you can somehow control those “never ending” thoughts that pass through your mind, you are meditating in some way. There is scientific evidence that when you meditate, the frequency of the brain goes down to a level (alpha state) which is most beneficial to you.

If you have been meditating, you already know the benefits. If you have never meditated, it is never too late to start. Here are some popular meditation techniques:

There are people who meditate for hours and there are people who meditate for a few minutes a day/week. What is common is that every practitioner of meditation acknowledges that meditation has helped them to lead a better life one way or the other.
