Meditation has been trending for a few years now, as those who value health, wellness and mindfulness proclaim its benefits for your mental wellbeing.
Meditation is often said to be able to help you refocus your mind, reduce stress and anxiety and to help you become more self aware. It may be able to help you find some calm in the chaos of everyday life, creating space in your routine and in your head to take a moment for yourself. Many people claim this helps them to bring long lasting benefits into their lives, ranging from reducing anxiety and connecting better, to improving focus.
Whatever the reason you may want to try meditating, it can seem pretty daunting. Sitting in silence with just your own thoughts for company is not something we experience often in our busy day to day lives, especially nowadays when we are constantly stimulated by screens, activities, or being around other people. However, as a practice that has been around for thousands of years you can be pretty confident that there have been plenty of people in that same situation.
