What is meditation?

Chitta Vritti Nirodha - Removing the fluctuations of the mind. 

Awareness - becoming conscious of when our mind wanders or gets caught on replay in certain thoughts or memories.

Benefits of meditation:

Decreases stress, anxiety, and worry

Decreases depression

Increases focus and concentration

Increases self-confidence

Increases happiness

Improves mood and emotional intelligence

Slows aging

Benefits cardiovascular and immune health

Why adding meditation to your routine isn’t “more”:

Take a look of the long list of benefits above.  To get those results via a doctor, a therapist, the drugs they prescribe you, would take a lot more time and also cost you a pretty penny.

All it takes is a little discipline and a few minutes of your day.
