You cannot not think. From the moment you wake until you fall asleep at night, your mind is engaged in constant chatter, leading you into unhelpful judgments and decisions. Meditation, when practiced regularly, will still the chatter and raise your awareness so that you focus effortlessly on what you’re doing and who you’re with, leading to improved interaction with others and an enhanced sense of purpose and well-being.
Meditating for only a few minutes every day has been shown to reduce stress by 20 per cent. Clinical studies over 40 years show that meditation has a wide range of physical, psychological and spiritual benefits including:
- stress reduction
- strengthening of the immune system
- reduction of high cholesterol or high blood pressure
- greater mental and emotional clarity
According to recent studies, more than 60 per cent of people in Hong Kong suffer from anxiety. Anxiety not only challenges your immune system, making you more vulnerable to illness, but it depletes your energy and adversely affects your mood.
