Incorporating Meditation Through Lifestyle Changes

Incorporating Meditation Through Lifestyle Changes

Choosing To Cleanse Your Life for a Blockage-Reduced Path

Over the years, we have been victims of several negative thoughts due to age-long traumas, limiting beliefs, and our experiences with people. We desire the best in life, but this built-up fear and doubt often block us from attracting the kind of life we desire. We struggle over the years, feel incapable and insecure, and wish our lives could one day be meaningful. To manifest those dreams of yours, you would need to clear those blocks that get us stuck in life, no matter how big.

Having read this book thoroughly to this point, we know that there’s no denial of how meditation can help cleanse our mind to live joyful, meaningful lives attracting what we love and feeling good about it without much struggle.

A good life is your birthright; nothing should ever stop you from getting it. So rather than whimper and play the “pity party,” it is time to cleanse your life, release the limitations, clear those blocks and allow yourself to open up and RECEIVE before that greatness can flow toward you.

Lifestyle Changes to Address before Commencing With Meditation

While meditation has tremendous benefits in our lives, we can only enjoy its maximum benefits; we need to make specific changes. These lifestyle changes will enhance your ability to be mindful and enjoy peace. 

  1. Diet

The brain is one of the metabolic organs needed to activate any form of awareness. As such, it needs a steady stream of nutrients to function; else, it might aggravate negative feelings irrespective of how long you meditate. When you want to eat, eat healthily, drink plenty of water and keep the fat and soda intake low.

  1. Watching the Screen For Too Long

Watching the television or browsing all day can mess up not only your eyes but your thoughts. You might get carried away visualizing scenes from a reality show when meditating. So, get it right by doing things in moderation.

  1. High Intake of Alcohol

We often rely on alcohol as a de-stressor or depressant, but its aftermath makes us worse. As you begin the consistent meditation journey, try to go low on alcohol; if possible, avoid it altogether.

  1. Yoga and other physical activity

Exercise and yoga have been proven to constantly elevate moods, infringe on negative thoughts, and keep us positive. Try picturing what these with meditation will do to your life. 

  1. Self-Care

Nothing can describe the unimaginable joy of putting in intentional efforts to take care of your physical self. While meditation would help your inner self and esteem, a day at the spar will keep the glow longer.

Knowing Why You Need To Meditate

Most people start meditating for several reasons, however, knowing why you want to meditate can help you get the results you desire

So why do you want to meditate? Do you know why?

The benefits of meditation are tremendous and evident in the lives of those who practice it.  

Meditation changes your mind, and this change impacts every aspect of your life. It relieves you from pain and improves the quality of life in a chronic pain patient.

The awareness it brings enables you to put off negative thoughts such that worries and anxiety are consciously sent packing out of your mind, and you’d begin to feel happier in your lives, smile more and find inner peace.

Meditation also helps you recognize your emotions and the emotions of others; thereby, you become enabled to give and show forth love, making your relationships get better and last longer.

This practice also helps you relax, which means you’ll get to sleep better, feel less stressed up and lead successful lives. Most meditators always look forward to the next day at work, at school, or anywhere else because they turn up looking well, happy and prosperous.

Therefore, find out what you want out of this exercise and put in the time and effort to see your utmost desire come to life!

Finding A Unique Balance and Routine That Works For You

Since you are geared up to start, you should also acknowledge that finding a unique balance and routine that works for you can be challenging, but you’d engage in this exercise with ease with time. 

That’s why knowing why you want to do this is extremely important because such knowledge will keep you motivated to carry on through the first week and other days when life throws stones at you.

Usually, the first three days you begin are always filled with lots of enthusiasm, but as the day goes by, you might end up snoozing the alarm, waking up later than usual, and rushing out. Maybe you’d do it in the car or bus or when you get to the office. As it is, you may turn out not doing it at all on that day, and you’d say

Well, I’ll try again tomorrow.”

Well, dear, tomorrow comes, and you end up repeating the same pattern and end up with an irregular meditative pattern by the end of the month.

You roll your eyes at yourself; you know you want to do this, but you find it difficult waking up early and incorporating it into your busy life. Staying consistent is as hard as hell! But you can do it.

● Set a time for your meditation and stick to it. It necessarily doesn’t have to be in the morning. If you can’t rise earlier, then stick with the evening routine. If you can consistently stick to that particular time for 30days, it wouldn’t be hard anymore to continue because your body and mind would have adjusted to that set time.

● Remind yourself why you are doing this in the first place. You can have it written in a journal or on cardboard, hung where you can see it every day.

● Know the type of meditation that suits your preferences and goals and stick with it too. Identify the style you like too. Do you like sitting, or you find it more comfortable lying? Do what is comfortable for you; else, you might end up procrastinating or thoroughly disliking this exercise.

● Have Fun with it, and don’t go hard on yourself by setting unrealistic expectations. Settle for meditation music and enjoy the moment as you tune into your body and explore your mind

Meditation doesn’t have to be practised for an extended period. As a newbie, five minutes is enough, but you can extend it to ten to fifteen minutes as you progress. Fit meditation into your lifestyle; it is left to you to discover what is best for you. Once discovered, stick with it.

Good luck!
