Meditation helps in refining one’s senses and facilitates growth of one’s perception. This is because presence of stress, depressions, anxiety and uncontrollable thoughts acts as impediments to perfections in the nervous system. By helping contain these conditions, meditation heightens sensation and perception.
I have considered integrating meditation into my lifestyle schedule. The strategy that I have opted for is as follows:
- Wake up an hour earlier.
- Go to silent place to avoid disruptions and distractions.
- Appreciate the existence of a higher me.
- Listening to inspiration background music
- Replacing some entertainment time with meditation.
