For those of you who read my blog long enough, you know that I am one of the most logical people out there, meaning that I don’t believe in the Spiritual part of this exercise when it comes to Meditation. Said I don’t believe in the supernatural, but I do believe that there are clear advantages to meditating. Still, as often it is, different from other people who are selling mediation.
In religion, we can claim that God is everything that we don’t understand yet. As the discrepancy between what we do and don’t understand gets smaller and smaller, we can better explain this spiritual part from a scientific standpoint. However, more than science, there is an easier and more concerning explanation for our consumption behavior.
It is my personal belief that people meditate because their lives are just to overwhelmed with over stimulation. There is so much going on in our day-to-day lives that we are doing something almost every second of our existence and don’t take time to relax our brains.
Meditation provides just that – a piece of mind. People who meditate take time to disconnect from daily problems, noise, and ongoing stream of information. Finally, they stop and listen to their brains, screaming “Aaaaaa,” and by pursuing mindfulness activities, they relax this overworked muscle and have time to organize their thoughts.
People who cannot sleep indeed from over stimulation of the brains and should do Meditation or mindfulness. One of the main reasons people don’t sleep well is that their brains are working in overdrive. They still did not disconnect from the daily preoccupations and “doing,” so they don’t allow their mind chemistry to change, to go to sleep.
So should we do Meditation? Not necessarily. If you have an active lifestyle with no mental relaxation, which stands for disconnection from any sort of mental stimulation, including TV, Phones, and the Internet, then, by all means, do it.
However, if you are already living a healthy mind lifestyle, then my prediction is that you don’t need it. It is always good to do healthy things, but overdoing them or concentrating too much on one piece of the puzzle can be detrimental to overall success.
