How Yoga Helped Improved the Quality of my Life
Life is full of hurdles and our day-to-day routine can put pressure on us that we feel much burdened and shattered. Every event in our lives sets a different emotion in us and at times these emotions can overwhelm us. As we struggle to ensure that our lives and those of our loved ones is the best we pile pressure in our brains. The anxiety of working extra hard so as to get a promotion or to achieve ambitions may be at exerting stress in our lives which most of the time we never realize.
It is advisable to schedule some time for meditation
This is so that our brains can be at ease and get rejuvenated. While attending yoga sessions last year, I realized the potential of meditation in our lives. Prior to that it had never occurred to me that meditation could help calm my mind and help me in any rational thinking. Actually I saw no benefit in yoga or anything to do with meditation until I accompanied my co-worker, Janet to a yoga session.
The trainer at the center was very lovely and welcoming and invited me to join them but I declined choosing to read some magazine there as I waited for my friend to finish his sessions. She had told the class that people don’t always yoga for meditation; they also figured it’s a great stretching exercise that will shed some inches in your stomach area. Who knew, right? Among the magazine at the centre was one which features success stories about people who had undertaken yoga which eventually changed their lives.
I perused through the magazine just to pass time, but I stumbled on a story of a 12 year old girl who had been a victim of rape but through meditation; she was able to overcome the trauma that she had gone through. The story was so touching and left me contemplating more about mediation. After the yoga session, my friend and I left; on the way we discussed more about the need of meditating in our lives. As convincing Janet was, she made me revisit my prejudice about the whole meditation issue.
Regular Meditating Can Help Improve Concentration
Among the benefits of I particularly wanted to find out how one of them works. I wanted to improve my concentration. Being a lady who most of the times gets distracted and loses focus in whatever I’m doing, to an extent that at times I quit my dreams half-way, the urge of beginning meditation sprouted in me.
That evening after work, I again accompanied Janet to her yoga sessions where I had a chat with the trainer. We had a lengthy talk and I was convinced that I needed to start the sessions. I did so after a week.
Through the instructions and guidance, I started the course which was to go on for the next 30 days. I was advice to adhere to the program; by sacrificing to attend all the sessions; so that I could see the potential of the whole thing. I realized that I was getting more focused at work; and I could even multi-task remarkably without losing attention.
But I was determined for more, so after the first session was over, I decided to continue meditating each day after work and see what more was in store for me.
Taking a Step Towards Happiness
Soon, I realized that I was becoming more discipline and was even leading a better lifestyle. The mediation helped me make decisions and be ready to defend them because they made me become more aware of myself and what I wanted in life. I realized that I could be anyone whom I wanted to be; if I became more disciplined.
Eventually, happiness and self-satisfactions started rolling in and in a nut-shell, I couldn’t help but marvel at the great decision that I had made to be part of the meditation team when I paid for my initial course.
