Top Reasons You Should Definitely Start Meditating

Are you on the fence about meditation?

Then let’s make things a little simpler for you: this is something that you absolutely should do.

Meditation is an incredibly useful skill and a form of brain training that can help to fortify your mind and make you more effective in a wide range of situations.

In this post, we’ll take a look at some of the most important reasons you should consider taking up meditation no matter who you are.

It Thickens Your Brain

Believe it or not, meditation can physically change the shape of your brain, making it thicker, stronger and better connected. Studies show that meditation increases the amount of white matter (cells that support the neurons) as well as cortical thickness in the all-important frontal regions.

This correlates with improved attention, better memory and faster processing speeds. In short: meditation makes you smarter!

It Helps You Deal With Stress

Meditation is a tool that you can use whenever you need to escape from the rigors of daily life. This is a ‘place’ you can escape to at any time, that allows you to rise above the various stressors and challenges that you normally face.

At the same time though, meditation also helps you to remain on a more even keel all the time and to keep your mind still and placid. This is not only an important change for your own wellbeing, but also something that can have profound effect on your ability to perform under pressure.

It Gives You Greater Emotional Control

If you want to come across as someone who is calm, collected and on top of things, then keeping your emotions more even is one of the best ways to do that. We are instantly drawn to and impressed by people who seem to have their emotions under control and this is something that can help you to perform better in relationships, in your career and more. If you seem to be constantly in a fluster on the other hand, then you’ll seem volatile, unpredictable and potentially unreliable.

It Provides Mental Discipline

Meditation is the ultimate expression of self-discipline. This is the ability to sit quietly and not allow any distracting thoughts to derail your attempt to be calm and still.

If you can manage to resist the temptation to think about other things, then in daily life you’ll be able to resist other impulses and other things that are trying to distract you too.

We, humans, are just marvelous, aren’t we?
When you really think about all the stuff we do (including the things we don’t have control over, like hearts beating) it really just blows my mind.
And the voice is no exception. To sing and sing healthy there’s some stuff going on.
To really appreciate it, you have to know a bit about how it works.

Four Things That Can Make Your Life More Meaningful

When we spend our lives merely surviving, life can start to seem a little empty and pointless. Nevertheless, this is exactly how many of us live: we work for eight hours or more a day and then we come home feeling too tired and exhausted to do much of anything with our time. So, we sit and watch TV.

The same thing repeats and repeats and the most excitement we have is a holiday once a year to look forward to. Is that really living?

Learn To Sing Correctly Every Time

Kids tend to find singing very amusing and never miss a chance to show off their singing talent. For some kids, the desire to sing does not wear off by getting older. In some cases, it grows even stronger and it becomes a passion they wish to pursue as adults. In this case, singing becomes a bit more challenging. It’s one thing to make singing mistakes as a kid and quite different to become embarrassed in a karaoke contest. In fact, many people give up singing as adults, simply because they are afraid of the harsh criticism they may get.
