Meditating for Mental Health is a mantra our country and world should adopt. It’s clear mental health issues are a massive issue right now. And meditation has been proven as a method to help with the whole spectrum of issues. However, meditation requires people to have the time and space to just sit and do nothing. Unfortunately, our society has never promoted people’s ability to sit eyes closed and do nothing.
Now I know people say “I can’t sit still with my eyes closed, and that is the power of the process! When we humans can achieve it, our mental health is impacted in big ways.
The Isha Kriya meditation (see video below) – makes it very easy to get started. Don’t do the placebo method on yourself and say “if its so easy and basic it must not be that great” – it’s truly transformational. Especially if you’re committed to your mental health where you do it daily and even better – twice daily! Yes I know that’s a huge commitment to your mental health.
Mediation is also free to do at home, so its an incredible method for bringing down the cost of health care and the only side effects are you feel better. Verses the meds people get put on now, help for the moment, but then when people try to get off their meds they feel worse than before… its a horrible cycle many people are stuck in right now.
If you are seeking better mental health, I can say from my own experience, devotion to meditation has been huge. Daily devotion is even more powerful! I know because I have fallen out of my daily devotion after doing it for several months in a row and feel the difference in my mental stability. As things start to feel chaotic again, I return to my consistent meditation practice and things start to get better.
