Hello guys and welcome back,
Today I want to pointed out most common myths about meditation. In our fast moving life we often make a loads of excuses not to this or that or just post pone our daily task just because we don't have a time. Lets face it... We make our time, time for work, house chores and time for ourselves. I came a cross to many people saying ohh I don't have a time for meditation because I am constantly busy, kids around all day, too much to do, busy at work... I would like to advise just stop... Sit down get your self drink and think again. Stress is not good, even good stress can be harm. You got only 1 life and its present right now. You cant press play again and start live your life from beginning. Therefore is even more important to stop and relax, get most from your day and your life.
Myth number 1 - It sounds boring - Well lets face it... It is boring sometimes. It is as boring as your work, your journey to be success. It is like learn how to play music instrument. There is a loads of boredom in process. Lets be honest is not exiting but you have to do it if you want to be really good. Pay off is that you will improve and became really good. If you want to be really good you have to go throw-out some boredom.
Myth number 2 - Meditation is too religious/spiritual/woo woo for me - You don't need to be religious or spiritual to meditate. meditation is not about afterlife, god, religious practises or more spiritual being... it is about NOW moment, ground you standing, chair you sitting, garden you surrounded. meditation is realistic almost too realistic sometimes and providing us with calm space where you can escape daily stress and discover our mental and physical sensations.
Myth number 3 - I don't have a time - Most common excuse, I bet you can spare 5 minutes from your busy life and just stop. It is scientifically proven that reduced stress significantly improve your cognitive abilities and sense of mental wellbeing will improve your performance in other areas of life. With more relaxed heathy and attentive mind you will safe time by completing tasks with better focus and efficiency.
Myth number 4 - My Mind is too busy to mediated - We all have a busy live sometimes. That's not a problem and another reason why you should try meditate. You don't need to force your mind to enjoy meditation or be some sort of super hero meditator. You cant stop thoughts they are part of you as human being and thoughts are power of your mind. Meditation is about sit with your self be present and your mind will start resting. Once you try this you will explore how enjoyable that could be.
Myth number 5 - I am not be able to sit still - Fidgeting is natural. We all doing it. However if crossed legs doesn't work for you can find any other posture or position you can feel comfortable. But don't fall asleep while you meditating. Is that make you feel that you want to try??
Myth number 6 - I don't want to be alone with my mind - Its scary I agree but use it as excuse is not really believable. There is some sort of anxiety we feel just sitting with ourselves, our mind and there is not space to escape or anything we can use as distraction to use as escape excuse. If you avoiding meditation you avoiding yourselves.
Ok guys this is 6 myths I came across from different age groups of people. I think that there is one think to remember and it is that our body mirror mind and mind mirror our body. If one side doesn't feel very well the other side will feel bad too. I am offering private mindfulness sessions and consultation and first session is FREE. Give it a go and book yourselves in .
