Why you should meditate

No you don’t need to be a Buddhist or a spiritual guru to enjoy all the benefits of meditation. Meditation is for everybody. Already 5 minutes a day is a great start. If you cannot handle complete silence at the beginning, try out some guided meditations with background music.

Our mind is full of thoughts all the time even when we are sleeping. Don’t you think it would be happy about a break from time to time?

Some benefits of meditation:

  1. Being calmer
  2. Being more focused
  3. Improvement of sleep
  4. Having better social interactions
  5. Getting to know yourself better
  6. Having more energy

25 Life Lessons – Lesson 11

Lesson 11

Drink plenty of water!

Water is one of the most important things for your health. Up to 60% of the human adult body is water. Water is essential for your body and mind to function. Stay away from caffeine and sodas and enjoy a glass of water with some lemon instead. I highly recommend to start your day with a glass of water instead of coffee.

Lesson 8

Do what makes you happy every day! Don’t wait until it is too late!

You don’t know how much time you have got to live, so it is important to literally enjoy every single day. I have met so many people who worked and suffered every day hoping to be able to enjoy their retirement. However, many of those people died only a couple of years or even months after their retirement started. You don’t know what the future brings. You only got today, so make it count and enjoy it!

Lesson 7

It is okay to be lazy!

In our society nowadays we see it as a big achievement to be super busy. However, being busy does not increase our quality of life. Humans, as every other animal, need time to relax and just do nothing. Look at cats or dogs, they sleep almost all the time. It is okay to not be super busy, nothing to be ashamed of.
