Meditation has seen a rise in popularity recently. Going from what was once viewed as a bit ‘hippy dippy’ to something that everyday people are turning to, to help improve their mind, body and soul.
Many celebrities use it in their everyday lives from media mogul Rupert Murdoch, comedian Russell Brand and film director Martin Scorsese, to model Gisele Bundchen, actress Cameron Diaz and talk-show host Ellen De Generes.
So if it’s good enough for them then it must be good enough for us too, right?
As outsiders looking in we can kind of understand how we’d benefit from meditating, but surely there’s a certain level of being out of your comfort zone that we first need to overcome? Being in a room full of strangers and opening yourselves up to an alternative approach to health and wellness is quite brave but we’re sure the positives far outweigh the negatives. We’ve found a really insightful article on The Art of Living website that explains the benefits of meditation that we wanted we’d share with you, to show you why you should give it a go.
There are physical and mental benefits to meditation along with other benefits too. Meditating can help you overcome emotional stress or even transform you as a person and your entire outlook on life. It’s a powerful force to be reckoned with and we can’t wait to find a meditation class in our local area. Why not give it a try and let us know how you get on.
