Meditation. The stereotypical image of someone dressed in robes and jewelry sitting crossed-legged in a candlelit room comes to mind. This person’s eyes are closed and their hands, which are hovering effortlessly in the air, make an “OK” symbol. This typical image is considered the social media norm of meditation. When in reality, meditation is something that anyone can do.
Now picture this, the stereotypical average person dressed in business clothes is sitting at a desk in their cubicle. They have had a rough day. Work has been tough, meetings have been long, they have a headache, and then they decide to meditate. This individual closes their eyes and begins to clear their mind to relax.
Regardless of who a person is, anyone can meditate. It’s an act of relaxing the body and the mind and reaps many benefits.
Let’s Get to the Basics
What exactly is mediation? Meditation is defined as the act of being deep in thought either reflecting on thoughts, relaxing the mind, practicing breathing techniques. Meditation is a form of reaching a new spiritual height within oneself; it’s about being comfortable with yourself. Meditation has many forms. Some forms rely on the act of different breathing techniques. While other forms depend on creating mental goals or completely detoxing the mind.
