Life is actually what happens to us in chase of happiness and contemplation. And, in this quest, we all are losing an essential thing which is the peace of mind. Each day we wake up, prioritise our tasks and run for the rest of the day to get them done and in the routine of doing this every day, we start feeling the lack of enthusiasm in work and zest for life which ultimately leads us to physical and mental imbalance. Whether you are on the sports ground, at office, school or college, you need to be clear about yourself and your goals, but at present, we are surrounded by so many options that we tend to forget or concentrate on the reality of ourselves and goals.
Time never stops and we need to move on with it, but if it doesn't give you the peace of mind, then you are no less acting like a robot. Well, in such case there is one thing that can create magic, helping you to cherish every moment of your life and that is Meditation. Meditation is the process to bring us back on the right track on which we want to be. It is the most efficient way to train our mind which is responsible for our actions. According to a British clergyman Jeremy Taylor, "Meditation is the tongue of the soul and the language of our spirit."
Every job, whether it is office work, studies or sports, requires physical as well as mental power, and mindfulness is the key to understand the strategy by which we can work more efficiently. Meditation helps you gain mindfulness which in turn provides the clarity in actions. It helps you handle the pressure in the most skilful way; anger isn’t the way to handle problems which may otherwise hamper your task.
Let's take an example of sports. While playing a match with a team, if anything goes wrong, a new game begins which is the "blame game" that leads to dispute in the team and the opponent takes advantage of it. Meditation helps us understand the circumstances and have the patience to find the root of the predicament. Meditation helps in understanding others better and hone our skills. With a patient mind and the ability to take right decisions, we can perform better in any field of life and these characteristics can be gained by involving meditation in our daily schedule.
Being a sports person, at the end of the game, whether you have won or lost, you need to be happy and focus on the upcoming matches. Meditation helps you gain that inner peace of mind and happiness that makes your life worth. After all, these are the two things which we all want. These are just a glimpse of the benefits of meditation and if you want to know all of them, you should add meditation as part of your daily routine. You will surely feel the change within you and that change will be propitious.
