Increase Success in all Areas of your Life with Meditation
How the Power of Meditation can Increase your Productivity
Do you often find yourself wanting to be more productive in your life? More successful in the goals you have set for yourself? Or the achievements you wish to accomplish? Studies have shown the meditation can be the perfect solution to help you get there. Some of the benefits to meditation include: improving time management by boosting attention, sharpening focus, enhancing workflow, and preventing procrastination.
Meditation affects a part of the brain involved in monitoring your focus and self-control. Researchers from Harvard Medical School found that a meditation program led to changes in brain regions involving learning and memory. In fact, practicing mindfulness and meditation has consistently been shown to improve your ability to sustain attention. Those who worked in high-stress work environments and practiced meditation were able to stay on a task longer and received positive feedback after a task performance.
A daily meditation practice can increase self-discipline and sharpen focus at work. Research shows that mindfulness encourages task persistence. Meditation that brings self-awareness to one’s emotions and mental state can allow a person to approach situations with a clearer and more focused mindset.
When you meditate, you clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress.
Much of our stress comes from too much input and a lack of time or tools in handling the input. We get information, emotions, and we get overloaded. Our brains don’t know what to handle first, so they just keep cycling through all the information. Talk about crazy-making.
Next time you’re feeling like you need to cram, stay up late, or just push through, remember how even just a few minutes of meditating can be more productive. It sounds crazy, but making space for a few minutes of no stimulation is often the most productive thing a busy body can do.
