It’s a piece of advice yogis have given for thousands of years: take a deep breath and relax. Watch the tension melt from your muscles and all your niggling worries vanish. Somehow we all know that relaxation is good for us.
The simple difference between those who meditate and those who do not is, in a meditative mind your thoughts are witnessed, while in your ordinary mind, your thought are the boss. So in both minds, an upsetting thought can occur, but for those who meditate it is just another thought, which is seen as such and is allowed to blossom and die, while in the ordinary mind the thought instigates a storm which rages on and on.
Your benefits from meditation increase with regular practice, so your blood pressure reduces, you stop getting those sore throats, hormones are healthier, so hot flushes reduce and PMS improves and inflammatory markers drop, suddenly your joints stop aching.
Ideally, what you’re looking for is deep relaxation where tension is released from your physical body and your mind completely switches off to solving and engaging. You don’t get the same effect flaked out on the couch, or forcing yourself to relax. It’s easy to access once you know how. That’s where meditation, guided relaxation and breath work are sensational.
