Meditation for motivation

To the outsider, meditation can look a bit kumbaya, a bit wishy washy. But in fact daily meditation can be a great way to get your life on track and rid yourself of the stress of everyday life whilst also motivating you to stick to your life goals.

Many people have tried meditation during their life time, some with more success than others. Mastering the art of meditation can take a while, so if you’re struggling to see results straight away, don’t give up. There are many ways that regular meditation can help you to stay focused and motivated during the course of the week, which can improve your performance in the work place and also help you to feel better within yourself too. Here are several ways meditation will help your motivation.

1. It will reduce stress

With less stress, it’s a lot easier to stay motivated. When you’re feeling stressed out, even the smallest of things can start to get you down, and you might feel like you just can’t keep going any longer. Being less stressed will help you to concentrate better at work as well as perform more effectively while keeping your spirits up.

2. It can help you relax more

When you’re not worrying about everything, you can relax more and motivate yourself to keep going and complete the necessary tasks. When you’re stressing out, all you want to do is go to bed and forget about all your problems or have somebody else take care of them! Relaxation is heavily promoted and encouraged through daily meditation, so taking part in it regularly can ease your anxieties.

3. It gives you a routine

With a good routine, it’s much easier to concentrate on the things you need to do, and you’ll be able to motivate yourself more easily too. When you’re in a routine, you can clearly see what you’re doing and what needs to be done. If you struggle to establish a routine in your life, getting into the habit of meditating can help you to achieve this. You’ll be able to spend quality time thinking about what you need to do and how you can build a routine, while also relaxing and meditating on other things.

4. It can improve concentration

There have been many studies into whether or not meditation can actually help to improve our concentration, and the general consensus is that it actually can. Just a few minutes per day of meditation trains your body and mind to stop and concentrate on what you’re doing in a very focused manner. You can then apply this to different aspects of your life, especially if you’re studying or working in a job which requires a lot of concentration.

If you find your mind is whirring every day, and you find that you are struggling to achieve what you know you are capable of, then why not give daily meditation a go? Build it into your routine every day for for a month, and then see how much it has helped you. I am sure that you will find that your productivity and motivation has increased whilst your stress levels have decreased.

taking massive action towards goal achievementHappy New Year to you all.

Thank you for sticking by me, and reading this post today. I drifted off towards the end of last year, found myself spread too thinly, and achieving very little. So this year I need to be better – I owe it to you. And I want you to hold me accountable if you see me not giving you what you deserve – if you come here to read my posts, they should be more regular, right? So feel free to give me a kick up the backside!

Of course, that means setting goals. But as I stated last year, I’m not a big fan of setting New Year’s Resolutions – we should not expect that just because the bell chimes midnight and the year ticks over, we can suddenly put to right all the things that we don’t like in our lives. That is just a ludicrous way of thinking.Continue reading

 

Tim Ferris, author of The Four Hour Work Week, stated that “People will choose unhappiness over uncertainty”. That’s right – people would rather stay as they are, even if they are unhappy, than put themselves to the effort of improving their lives. Maybe it is the fear of the unknown, maybe they worry that if they take action they would be worse off? But would you rather be unhappy, or do something about that?

In order to have a better life, if you are unhappy with your current situation, then you need to take a good look at where you currently are. You need to empower yourself to make the changes necessary that will lead to a happier, more satisfying life.Continue reading

What to Do When Your Child Feels Lonely

Loneliness can have an adverse effect on anyone. Children are certainly no exception. In fact, loneliness is a common issue among kids. It is typically brought on by a number of factors.

Problems at school can often lead to loneliness. Events such as encountering a bully or dealing with a close friend moving away can quickly bring on feelings of social isolation.
