Meditation helps people rest their mind, tame the monkey mind, increase focus and even improve health and mental health. It does not necessarily involve sitting still or chanting a phrase. There are dozens of types of meditation. The key is finding the right fit for you or your clients.
Interestingly, the mind itself is the biggest obstacle standing between ourselves and self-awareness. The mind is undisciplined and, like a curious toddler, it resists any attempts to discipline it or to guide it on a particular path.
By becoming more aware of yourself, your environment and your triggers, you can develop an increased sense of confidence that you can control your emotions and have a choice about your reactions.
