Reasons People Have Trouble Meditating & Why They Should Give It A Try For At Least 30 Days! Pt. 2 by Amy Reissner Holistic RN

Reasons People do not try to meditate & Terrific benefits to trying it! FOR AT LEAST 30DAYS!!

I have worked with a variety of people, both one-on-one and in groups who feel that they just can't meditate for various reasons. They can't:

1-Sit still

2-Focus their mind

3-Let go of all the thoughts that they have running around in their head

4-Not be productive and let go of their To-Do List

5-Find the time 

6-Understand the benefits

7-Create the setting


As a long time meditator, I think the benefits are many. Some of the benefits of meditating are:

1-Feeling peaceful, calm & emotionally-centered (not to be confused with tired!)

2-Enhances mental clarity and ability to focus

3-Provides solutions to problems

4-Increases productivity

5-Boosts immune system, energy, strength & vigor

6-Enhances the healing process & optimizes any treatment plan

7-Enables you to be in the moment with people, or any situation (after a period of time)

8-Allows you to appreciate your life & relationships

9-Improved performance in school, atheletics & public appearances

10-Reduces PMS

11-Harmonizes the endocrine system

12-Helps with weight loss

13-Great for the respiratory system-lowers oxygen consumption, lowers B/P

14-Reduces anxiety

15-Enhances fertility

16-Builds self-confidence

17-Develops inner wisdom & intuition

18-Greater tolerance

19-Increases life's opportunities (able to see beyond what is in front of you)

20-Creates a deeper spiritual relationship & a feeling on 'Oneness'


If this peaks your interest, as there are so many more benefits than what I listed, then there is no reason not to give meditation a try. According to Stephen Covey, it takes 30 days to either add a new positive habit or stop a negative habit!

The benefits of meditation are so tremendous. For myself I find that being able to quiet the mind and remove the "mind chatter" has tremendous benefits. My challenge? Finding the time! Can't wait for your next blog on tips to get started.

I, too, find that the amazing benefits are so fantastic that I looked for time to do it, even if it is only for 5-10 minutes a day. For me, right before I go to sleep works well. Another way that I fit it in is if I am feeling pressured with an over-flowing to-do list, I then take a break and meditate for 10-15 minutes. What I have found is that I then know exactly what I will do next...the priorities pop up and my day then flows so easily! I hope that suggestion helps! Let me know how you try to fit in the time!
