The main cause of heart attacks and strokes, which hits a large part of the population each year, is largely due to accumulated stress and the polluted environment in which we live.
Our society has put aside the well-balanced lifestyle of healthy diets, exercise and those essential moments in which to recuperate during the stressful day.
The working hours have lengthened; there is continual discord and expectations both within our households and at our working places.
Excess drinking and smoking are also major causes of heart disease as is the use of illegal drugs.
All these external and psychological factors contribute to destroy our overall well being, and the more we feel disrupted the more we search for drug remedies, that will on the contrary help to contaminate our system further.
The focal problem lies in the stress; all things psychological can cause actual physical diseases, it is therefore important to start healing the mind.
Meditation is an effective remedy, which will help us, let out all the negative sensations that are accumulated in our body.
This is not about the oriental setting of chants and incense and particular positions of the body; this is about relaxing and isolating yourself from the world of tension around you, in order to recuperate the simple essence of life.
Meditation is a means by which one can look into oneself and find a solution to the troubles that may cause us distress.
You will achieve beneficial results just relaxing and reducing everyday stress and most important this will help you to give the true importance to the day’s events, as more often than not we give much significance to things or situations that are not at all worthy.
