Our eyes, facial expressions, and behavior expose our emotions and innermost feelings. We can usually tell when someone is happy, at peace, in love, energetic, confident, innocent, etc., or quite the opposite, depressed, angry, hateful, tired, scared, guilty, etc. Making direct eye contact is a great communication skill to have. The next time you engage with another person, look straight into their eyes. If you look close enough, you will see through to their very existence.
Before I started meditating, my life was chaotic. I was a very anxious and uptight person. My mind and thoughts would go a mile a minute. I would worry about things that were out of my control; I got upset so easily over silly stuff, I would forget where I put things, etc. Life was always a struggle. When I started meditating, my life slowly began to change. Amazing things started happening. My life is more balanced, my emotions are under control, and my days go smoother. Life seems easier now, and it is getting better and better every day in every way. There are no meds, drugs, alcohol, or anything to ingest. Meditation is just pure and natural being. Here is what meditation has done for me:
- The noise or mind chatter in my head has reduced significantly.
- I have a more positive attitude.
- I am a calmer and more relaxed person.
- I feel healthier and more energetic.
- I sleep better.
- I am happier.
- I am confident.
- I can surrender to what is happening in each moment.
- I am a more conscious being.
- I have more peace and clarity in my life.
Meditation is empowering, enlightening, and transformative. I challenge you to try it for just one week straight for at least 15-20 minutes each day. It takes a little discipline, but I know you can do it!
Keeping a balanced lifestyle is important for well-being and happiness. Do your job, but take time for other activities or hobbies you enjoy doing. Exercise regularly but get proper rest. Eat healthy and then every once in a while indulge in a favorite dessert. Love yourself but don’t be narcissistic. Stay strong but be humble. Be confident but not arrogant. Be kind and willing to help others, but avoid being taken advantage of. Keep your emotions under control. When we experience loss, it is normal and natural to grieve as part of the healing process.
