The power of meditation


I became a happier, better and relaxed teenager after meditating for two months. It was so simple, unbelievable. In the beginning I struggled with my thoughts. However, after a while I could just enjoy the silence. Today, I will tell you how and why you should start meditating. So you don’t have to figure it out on your own.

Why you should consider starting meditating ,

1) You will be more happier and less stressed. The experience of meditation gives you the feeling of being your best self. Your happiest and relaxed self.

2) You willl be more aware of things that happen around you. Because meditation trains your brain to be aware and focus on what is happening around it, you’ll be more aware. Therefore you will enjoy the little things in life more and more. Enjoy the silence.

3) You will improve your focus and you will be more productive. Meditation will let you sit still and concentrate on one thing, being aware. One study (1) shows by meditation for only about 10 minutes each day you’ll be more effective while solving problems. You'll get more productive

4) You’ll improve your learning and understanding. One study (2) did research about the relation gray matter (a matter, with the function of translating information into your brain) and meditation. And it showed that after 8 weeks of practicing meditation the amount of gray matter increased. So you’ll develop a better way of learning for sure!


How to practise meditation is simple,

You just have to find a quiet place. And make yourself comfortable. You don’t have to sit legged, you can of course. But you also can just sit on a chair or perhaps lay down. Straighten your back and be aware. Just make sure you don’t fall in sleep during the meditation. Focus on your surroundings. And be aware in the moment. Let your thought be, but be aware of them. Don’t stop them away.
You can start by listening to a guided meditation on youtube. It doesn’t matter how long you meditation but I recommend starting with 20 minutes. Try to make it a habit. Because if it is a habit, you will see the results quicker, A better you.

So you want to become your better self. Try meditation. It is simple.

When your attention moves into the Now, there is an alertness. It is as if you were waking up from a dream, the dream of thought, the dream of past and future. Such clarity, such simplicity. No room for problem-making. Just this moment as it is.

Let me know what your experiences are with meditation in the comments.

The importance of reading

Today we are going to discuss the importance of reading. Reading has been in our lives since the middle ages but it faded away in the begining of this century. Mainly under teenagers it isn't popular anymore. Therefore I wanted you to show the importance of reading. Because a lot of people don't see the use in books nowadays. So let's get started,
Reading has a lot of benefits to the mind. The first benefit is that the mind needs the practice of reading to sense the words it sees. It develops the ability to connect the words to images in the head. So how more you read how faster and better you will read. And it will give you a bigger arsenal of vocabulary. Further reading create the ability to focus better and really listen to people in general. Because you train your brain to concentrate on one thing at a time. It also improves your memory because when we read, we are using our memory muscle. Joseph ones used a great metaphor, which explains it all;
Reading is to the m…

Live in the moment

During my life, most of the time I noticed awareness just slipped away like sand. I couldn’t get grip on it. And I wanted to live in the moment, for ever. Every time I tried to just focus on it. But I noticed it didn’t work, so I tried a lot of methods. As a result, I found that 6 of those acts were really good. So today, I am going to share 6 tips which are going to give you more joy in live. Because when you live in the moment, there is no-one stopping you ;)

These acts which will help you live in the moment,

1, Breath. Just breath. Focus on your breath. Close your eyes, or not, it is up to you. Feel the air flow through your throat getting in your lungs. Feel it, giving you the energy you need. In the long run the energy will give you a boost which will result in your mind living in the moment.

2, Stop over-thinking about it. Although it is a hard method. When you get hold on this one, it will improve your awareness. Because of the fact that thinking to much about it is bad, you w…

Why you should never compare yourself with other

I really was a shy twelve-year old (I know that is a long time ago). And during that time, I spent most of my school days comparing myself to others. But after a while, actually years, I finally opened my mind and saw that comparing really is a bad thing in life. Comparing is what sugar is for your health. It ruins attitude towards yourself. In my case, it really destroyed me. But, today I want to show you why you should not compare yourself, and where you should focus on. So let’s get started!

Comparing is never fair.
We all have a different past. We all are different.Maybe that someone has so much money because he started saving on an early age. As a result he has now more money, so what. Let your past be and focus on now. Or maybe your neighbor has a great six-pack. Don’t worry about it you are a good person, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have that six-pack. You will get there, if you want to. After all comparing will just never be fair. Because of the fact that we all are differe…
