Meditation helps you both physically and mentally stay healthier. Not only does it help you at the time you are doing it, but it benefits you throughout your day. Meditation may sound complex but remember there is no right way or wrong way to meditate. Meditation is just focusing your attention on something to block out the never ending stream of thoughts in your mind. Some people go to "their happy place" in there mind. Pick a place, any place, that you want to choose and focus on every little detail about your place. Focus untill you can feel as you are physically there. If you focus long enough you will be able to have a sense of the smells even. Other people focus purely on their breathing. Whatever you find works for you that is what your way of meditating is. What works for someone else may not work for you. Whatever it takes to distract all the thoughts that are streaming through your mind is what you will have to do so that PEACE of MIND has ROOM to get in. While you are meditating it is natural to lose focus from time to time. But as soon as you do, you have to start all over again focusing on the details to get back to your "happy place" again. Scientist may debate about whether meditation truly can help with things such as cancers. But they will all tell you that meditation helps with both your physical and mental well being. Maybe your meditation is listening to a song that makes it impossible to do anything but feel the tune throughout your mind body and soul. Before you know it your feet will start tapping. Or your legs and your pelvis start moving like Elvis's. A moment to get away from the never ending stream of thoughts is another moment of peace of mind. If you want to have PEACE OF MIND you have to make ROOM FOR IT to get in. Peace of mind is just a FLUSH away all you got to do is JUST FLUSH IT.
