The Benefits of Meditation and Prayer in Everyday Life

Is your daily routine so busy and full of activities that it’s causing you stress and agitation? We’ve all heard of the health risks associated with too much stress, but how can you reduce that stress and find peace in your life?

To achieve a sense of peace, you can turn to the gift of prayer and meditation.
 
There are many benefits to meditation and prayer:
 
1.    Stress reduction. Both meditation and prayer are wonderful for reducing stress. You'll find that it helps you learn how to get away from the worries of life to a more peaceful state of mind. 
  • Just 15 minutes a day can make a huge difference by bringing peace and relaxation to your body and mind. A few minutes each day isn’t much, considering that the positive effects will last hours.
     
2.    Improved health. Many studies have proven that prayer and meditation foster vibrant health. Usually these health benefits, such as lower blood pressure and decreased risk of heart disease, occur because of the lowered stress levels.
  • Physical problems are often a symptom of turmoil on the inside and prayer and meditation can help to overcome that turmoil. 
     
3.    Better control over your thoughts. Having negative thoughts from time to time is part of being human. Many people who are stressed don't believe they’re able to control what they think. The stress mounts, tempers flair, and before long arguments ensue.

However, by bringing prayer and meditation into your life, it’s possible to control your thoughts and stop negative thinking as soon as it happens. This helps keep your mind at peace. 
 
4.    Happiness. Both peace of mind and happiness are true benefits of meditation and prayer. Everyone is seeking happiness in their lives, and when you’re able to find peace of mind through prayer and meditation, you’re also welcoming happiness into your life.

By spending some time in personal reflection, you’ll gain a greater wisdom of your mission in this life, and you’ll be better able to appreciate all that you’ve been given, both good and bad. Meditation and prayer help banish those negative thoughts that threaten your peace of mind. 
 
5.    Better concentration. As you pray and meditate, you welcome peace and tranquility into your mind, which then affects how you live your life. When you alleviate the stresses in your life, you’re better able to concentrate on the things that are important, such as family or work. 
  • Continued prayer and meditation will help you expand your focus to multiple areas of your life.
Although prayer and meditation can provide peace in your life, it can be hard to make the time at first, but it’s easier than you think. Simply find a quiet place in your home and allow yourself to relax and feel at peace for 10-15 minutes. You deserve those 15 minutes of peace each day!
 
While there are plenty of positive benefits of prayer and meditation, it may take practice and perseverance to achieve them. Over time you’ll begin to experience this wonderful gift in your own life and you’ll be thankful that you did!

This is how my story begins; towards the middle of last year I saw an advert in the newspaper about a free seminar on wealth creation. For some reason I could not shake it out of my mind and I took a decision to attend. The seminar was held in Midrand in the early evening. From that day I have never regretted because Hannes has continued to challenge all Read more...

Ek is nou net oor die vyftig en was totdusver min of meer tevrede met my lewe. Ek het 'n wonderlike vrou en drie pragtige dogters. Verder het ek 'n goeie werk wat my darem so nou en dan stimuleer en die pot aan die kook hou. Daar kom egter ook dae wat ek teen Read more...

  I want to take this opportunity in thanking you for your efforts in making it easy (simple) for us in taking responsibility for our success/future by creating mediums eg the Kaizen Challenge.   In my specific case, I want to go back in the past and not only focus on the Kaizen Challenge. As is the case with a lot of other students, I met you some time ago and since then subscribed to all your seminars, training courses, DVD’s, E-books, software, programmes, fire-walking... Read more...

Shjoe! Where can I start? The best place to start is to thank Christ for his mercy and at the same time for living in me and that I shouldn't see the Holy Spirit as an external force but part of me in every possible way I can Read more...
