A recent article on wellandgood.com discusses the fact that more young people are practicing meditation than ever before, calling it an almost “mainstream” activity.
Meditation has become popular in recent years for the benefits it offers for the mind, body and soul combined. The article, Meditation Generation, says that more young people are turning to meditation to help with clarity, opening up their minds to bigger ideas and for overall relaxation.
We are living in a day and age where everyone is constantly on the go. Young people are experiencing long days and long nights without much time to unwind and rest their bodies. Practicing meditation, even if for only 10-20 minutes a day, can be beneficial for anyone who lives their life on a crazy schedule. Meditation not only helps reduce stress, it improves the overall quality of your life.
The amazing thing about meditation is that anyone can do it. You don’t need instructors or a fancy studio. The every day person who is looking for a moment of peace can simply find a quiet room and find a relaxing position that works for them. By focusing on breathing and relaxing, one can clear their mind of all the days stressors. Enhancing your meditation with soothing music or candles is also an option.
Of course, meditation classes can be taken and are becoming increasingly popular, but don’t let that stop you from giving it a try!
