Are you looking for something better in life? Are you already a meditator? Are you thinking of trying mediation for the first time? Would you like to be able to relax and free yourself from the continual chatter of your negative thoughts? Would you like improved physical and mental health? Would you like to feel better about yourself, have better self esteem, more confidence and better relationships? I'm guessing that if you read this far, then the answer to some of these questions must be "Yes". And the good news is, that meditation can help improve all these areas of your life and more. The effects of meditation are far reaching and the benefits are great.

Meditation has been around for many, many years and has played an important part in spiritual and religious traditions, mainly in the East. Now it has been shown, in the West, to have physical and mental benefits and is receiving more attention than ever before.

Put simply, regular meditation will improve your life.

We all try so desperately to retain some control over our lives. We are very invested in making sure that things go the way that we want them to. We try to find happiness by maximising the things in our lives that make us feel content and avoiding, as far as possible, the things that we do not want to happen.

We try all sorts of tactics to try and stay in control of the things that happen in our lives. We try to control the people and the events around us but this is near impossible. Some of us are so obsessed with control that we acquire OCD related problems (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).

The problem is that we feel that our problems are caused by external events and people whereas, in fact, it is our reactions to these events (happening in our minds) that are the cause of our frustration and anger. These negative reactions are generated by long-ingrained habits that lie well below conscious level so we are not even aware that they are there until we look.

Actually our state of our mind determines the way we look at everything in life - when we are angry or upset it is almost impossible for us to feel happy, even with the things that normally make us feel good. The good news is, that we can learn to let go of trying to control external circumstances and start to control the reactions of our minds instead. When our minds are controlled, we can be happy and peaceful and much more able to deal with the problems that life throws at us.

How do we control our minds? With meditation, of course. Meditation helps us to familiarise our minds with good feelings. With meditation, we train our minds so that we are in charge of our reactions. When we have more control, we will feel happy and peaceful. We will feel freer from problems and suffering. Our relationships and health will improve. And our lives can change beyond recognition. Meditation can benefit everybody and meditation can make you feel good. So now you know some of the answers to "Why meditate?" bookmark this site for plenty of meditation tips and lots of information to make your meditation easy.
