You Have To Meditate In A Fast Paced World
Meditation is one of the most famous words uttered in the health and wellness industry, from medical doctors, general practitioners, alternative therapist all the way to 'new age' experts. There are many scientific research on the topic of meditation, some of them very revealing. Meditation is not something new, it has been around for more than a thousand years, since the ancient indians. However, it looks like their's a renaissance happening in contemporary culture. Why is that?
OverviewModern culture is on the brink of complete burnout. Living in an urban area(suburban area), a telling insight is just to sit at a restaurant or a park and observe people. If you try it, one of the things you will notice is that almost everyone is locked in their head, doing things mechanically and not fully in the present-Mobile devices are not helping at all, some people are so glued to their screen that is completely hard to get a full attention from them-Every minute or so, based on the information they receive their facial expression changes!
A piece of information can literally change your mood. With future predictions of a Digital First World; where you study, work and do a bunch of other things online. I'm afraid things are not going to get better.
Believe it or not, Meditation is one of the most important practice that can help you offset this 'burnout syndrome'. There are different types of meditation, from spiritual, religious to just plain mindfulness. But they all have the same fundamental characteristic; relaxing the body and letting go of the 'blah blah blah' of the mind, being aware of yourself.
Meditation helps create an inner atmosphere where you're not swallowed by your thoughts or emotions. To be present when doing your task(s) and not getting burned out at the end of the day. The goal is to remain unfazed and not be swept by the 'emotional waves' constantly happening around, have a sense of clarity and focus when doing your daily tasks. There are also some long term great health benefits that have been documented; reduced stress, boost vitality, decreased insomnia etc.
ConclusionI'll say meditation is badly needed by modern culture. How long can we continue to try 'catching up' in this fast pace world without having some adverse effects down the line? Everybody seems to be in a hurry like there's no tomorrow, everything has to happen now and must happen now. Learn to take a break, it's not the end of the world. Pacing yourself is more important than keeping up to date with the world.
In any case, finding a good technique or practice to help solve this 'burnout syndrome' that's currently sweeping modern culture will be a very vital topic in the coming decades.
