Creating the time to step back from our thoughts literally creates the space for new and clearer states of mind to arise.
Meditation is a practice and a skill that causes long term changes to take place in the brain. These changes can happen after a relatively short period of time and with consistent practice. An insight into neuroplasticity demonstrates how responsive our brain and our nervous system is when we introduce frequent moments of stillness into our day.
There are different styles of meditation which include silent timers, mindfulness and guided visualisations. The HI CHI App has a collection of meditations that guide you effortlessly through a relaxing experience. There are also free silent bell timers for those that wish to simply sit in a quiet space.
Whatever practice you should to include in your day, you will quickly feel the benefits of a still and present mind.
