Maybe a better question would be who CAN’T benefit? No, really… with life’s ever-moving flow and the list of “to-do’s” growing, how do you have time to catch your breath, or at least appreciate the little things? It’s hard to live in the moment when there is limited time and a million things to do.
Research shows that meditation techniques can calm your nervous system by connecting your brain with your breath and your body. It isn’t the absence of thinking-- that isn’t possible. But it is trying to train your brain to let go-- let go of doubting thoughts and self-critique and learn to accept just being.
When your brain wanders, just come back to the breath.
Many people don’t start meditating because they fear that they will be bad at it. The main focus of meditation is breathing. If you can breathe, you can meditate.
