The practice of meditation is a gateway into your inner consciousness, resulting in an enhanced awareness of your own existence and your overall relationship to the universe and one of the best things about meditation is it can take only minutes a day!
People are working more and tiring themselves out, but really not achieving all that much. Still, given how busy we are, it’s not a surprise that most of us are stressed out, frustrated and can’t find inner calm. No wonder meditation and mindfulness are hot nowadays.

The cultivation of moment-by-moment awareness of our surrounding environment is a practice that helps us better cope with the difficult thoughts and feelings that cause us stress and anxiety in everyday life.
With regular practice of mindfulness exercises, rather than being led on auto-pilot by emotions influenced by negative past experiences and fears of future occurrences, we harness the ability to root the mind in the present moment and deal with life’s challenges in a clear-minded, calm, assertive way.
