Every once in a while, we should take a moment, maybe in the early morning or before going to bed, and just sit down, close our eyes and meditate for few minutes. Research after research has shown that meditation is essential to our mental and physical health. For example, according to The American Journal of Medicine; “One-hundred percent of insomnia patients reported improved sleep and 91% either eliminated or reduced sleeping medication use,” due to meditation. This is just one of the many studies that showed how meditation can be beneficial to us.
Meditation is becoming a habit of the world most successful people. Those who are meditating and working towards a goal have higher chances of reaching their destination than those who do not meditate. According to studies, meditation helps to overcome our tendency for distractions and helps strengthen our focus to stay on course. One of the main reasons why our goals are delayed is because we are distracted due to our environment and circumstances. Being focused and always staying on course, no matter what obstacle the world throws at us, will determine how quickly we will reach our goal(s).
Furthermore, research has shown that meditation can increase creativity. Using imagination in meditation triggers our creativity to soar a world that exists only in our mind. Steve Jobs said; “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.” It is no-brainer that CEOs and Executives are starting to meditate.
