#121 – How meditation can increase your emotional stability.
Are you interested in feeling calmer? More centered? More in control of your emotions? If so, meditation can provide emotional stability, something many people long for in today’s fast-paced, high-tech busy world. If you struggle with depression, mood swings, stress or other related issues, meditation can help provide the calm and clarity that you seek in just a few minutes a day.
Whether the issues you face are linked to depression and stress, a past trauma, or a chemical change in brain function, everyone can benefit from daily meditation. In fact, there is no better time to start meditating than today! The effects of meditation build over time, but you may notice a sense of calm, quiet and peace almost immediately.
Meditation brings the body into a state of deep relaxation and provides the tools and resources needed to deal with stress. As the body and mind learn to relax through deep breathing exercises and techniques, the mind calms and the body experiences a state of tranquility.
Meditation can actually neutralize the negative consequences of stress hormones that overtax your body and your emotional state. As hormone levels return to normal, emotions settle and stabilize. And the next time you feel upset or anxious, you will be better equipped to deal with intense emotions and situations, using your breath to calm down and relax.
Emotions can truly hold you captive, making you feel as though you’re living your life on a roller coaster of uncontrollable ups and downs, twists and turns. Meditation, on the other hand, involves a great deal of visualization – a powerful tool which can help you reshape your current way of thinking and create a more positive, stable emotional environment.
Meditation can help you build self esteem, heal from past traumas, and experience more joy in the present moment. Visualization during meditation not only gives you the tools to deal with emotional upset by providing stability, but it can also help you map out a course of change for your future.
Meditation can change your life from the inside out.
