One of the hardest aspects of recovery for people is getting into the habit of meditation. With the hustle and bustle of life it can get easy to get caught up into the busyness of life rather than delaying a few moments to try and regroup. Having been caught up in a chaotic life with addiction also makes it hard to slow down the brain when you are trying to get quiet during mediation.
Meditation is better when you have a focal point to aim for. Centralizing your mind to the waves when you are on the beach, using a guided meditation app, or mentally reciting a mantra to breathe in and breathe out, can get you to the meditative state that you are reaching for. Your brain can continue to race without having something to concentrate on, so find out what works for you, so you can enjoy getting still.
Instead of continuing with meaningless, unproductive activities, getting centered with meditation can give you a break that you probably really need. Once you refresh yourself in mediation, you can figure out what your priorities are and direct your thoughts to the appropriate ventures.
By breathing and being entuned with your body, you can release some of the negative or pinup energy that you may not know that you have been holding onto. Having a ritual in your meditation practice might release some verve into your life that you may not have even known would have made such a difference, but it will.
After you have meditated in any capacity, you can gain a sense of relief from parting ways with the negativity that once infiltrated your being. Many times, after achieving a meditative state, there is contentedness that follows from being able to sit quietly for a time.
Spirituality is a big part of meditation. The term spirituality can be off putting for some although until you have felt the connection that you will get with your Higher Power, you just do not know what you are missing out on. By connecting to a power greater than yourself, you can actually acquire some solid introspection within yourself.
Mediation may seem foreign to you, but you should try it to see what happens within yourself. Deep breaths along with deep thoughts can create calming results to generate the Zen that people are so fond of.
