I feel that meditation helps in so many ways for different reasons for a range of people.
Here are a few
- It makes you happier
- Improves your memory
- Makes you feel more grateful
- Reduces stress
- Improves sleep
- Improves concentration
- Encourages mindfulness
- Improves sex life
- Helps in fighting addiction and fears
- It’s free to do
- You can do it anywhere you like
- Any time meditating is better than no time
I have a few apps on my phone I use for meditation. One is called sleep timer that plays soothing sounds like waves or crackling fires or if you want someone doing a guided meditation the insight timer app is fab and has the best free version available.
