21 Benifits of Meditation to share with someone who should start meditation

Benefits of Meditation

1. It lowers cortisol levels. Research shows that mindfulness meditation lowers levels of cortisol, the hormone that causes stress. Reducing cortisol can decrease general stress, anxiety and depression.

2. You can better deal with stress. Meditation brings a sense of calm to the mind and body that can reduce stress, Washam says.

“When the mind relaxes and lets go, the body follows,” she says. “We want our adrenaline and our nervous system to take a break at times, to unplug, to recycle, to rejuvenate.”

3. It eases anxiety. “Meditation is literally the perfect, portable anti-anxiety treatment,” says health coach Traci Shoblom. Taking just a few minutes to close your eyes and do breathing exercises can turn off the mechanisms in your brain that cause anxiety.

4. It reduces depression symptoms. Depression is a series mental health condition often triggered by stress and anxiety. Research suggests meditation can change areas of the brain, including the “me center” and “fear center,” that are linked to depression. People who meditate also show increased gray matter in the brain’s hippocampus, responsible for memory.

5. You’ll get a mood boost. Meditation helps you deal with stress, anxiety and difficult situations, which makes you happier and feel better. “We’re just able to deal with difficult things without letting it affect your mood,” Washam says.

6. You can retrain your brain. The brain tends to develop as it’s used. Meditation may retrain the brain to use the prefrontal cortex, known as the “me center,” to regulate the amygdala, or “fear center,” .

7. It’s good for your heart. Research shows meditation can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, says Chirag Shah, physician and founder of online healthcare platform Push Health. Meditation positively impacts blood pressure, heart muscle effectiveness and general cardiovascular mortality.

8. It lowers blood pressure. High blood pressure affects about 30% of U.S. adults and is considered a worldwide epidemic that heightens the risk of stroke and heart attack. Meditation may improve blood pressure naturally, without medication, research shows.

9. It enhances serotonin levels. Serotonin is a chemical produced in nerve cells that works as a natural mood stabilizer. When you meditate, you’ll increase serotonin levels, which Washam says acts like a natural anti-depressant.

10. You’ll break bad habits. Whether it’s smoking or shopping too much, meditation brings awareness to your actions in that moment and help you break the cycle of a bad habit, Washam says.

Most habits form unconsciously, she says, and, “Over time, (meditation) brings awareness to what we’re doing, so we’re not acting out unconsciously. Mindfulness interrupts the habit.”

11. You’ll strengthen relationships. Good communication, empathy and respect are the hallmarks of a strong relationship, and meditation helps improve all of those qualities. Creating a deeper connection with yourself makes relationships easier and more fulfilling, Washam says.

“The moment I become present, I’m available to my partner, to my friends, to myself,” she says.

12. It boosts concentration. When so many things are racing through our minds at any given time, it can be tough to concentrate on tasks at work or even hobbies like reading a book. Meditation centers your mind so you can focus on what you need to get done.

13. It helps build inner strength. We’ve all been stuck in traffic or in a long, boring meeting and couldn’t wait to escape. Practicing meditation and mindfulness helps build inner strength and endurance to calmly get through these situations, Washam says.

“It creates an ability to be in the moment no matter how it is,” she says. “We’re just able to be with difficult things without unraveling or letting it affect you.”

14. You’ll learn to be present. Research shows meditation can decrease brain activity in the default mode network (DMN), the part of the brain that wonders, worries and overthinks, helping us stay in the present,

“Meditation promotes being in the present moment and focusing our thoughts,” Mahalli says, explaining that meditation works the brain like a muscle. “The more you meditate the more easily you’re able to snap out of DMN mode and into the present.”

15. You’ll become comfortable in stillness. These days, most of us are always on the go and rarely take the time to calm down. Meditation can make you feel comfortable with stillness, says Josee Perronlife coach and yoga and meditation teacher.

16. It helps with brain fog. If you struggle with concentration, forget things easily and have a hard time focusing, you might have brain fog. It’s often caused by stress, and a meditation practice can calm your mind and let you focus on your breath so you feel more present.

17. You’ll better handle anger. Getting angry is a natural feeling when dealing with difficult people or situations. If you act impulsively, you could make things worse, however. When you meditate, you train your brain to focus on the present, and this can help you learn to control and process your emotions in the moment.

“Maybe you’re upset, but you slow down and just feel your emotions,” Washam says. “Just that simple act of turning toward your breath creates a kind of relief in the mind.”

18. You can work through grudges. Holding onto anger and reliving past wrongs in your mind takes a toll on the mind and body. To calm these feelings, Washam suggests using STOP, a mindfulness–based meditation technique, which stands for stopping in the moment, taking a breath, observing your internal feelings and proceeding with your day.

19. You’ll live in the moment. Learning to focus and live in the moment is an important benefit of meditation, but it’s easier said than done. Often, our thoughts turn to past events or things we need or want to do in the future, and we seem to forget about the here and now.

20. It helps you cope with pain. Meditation activates areas of the brain that are associated with processing pain, so mindful breathing can help people manage chronic pain, says Megan Junchaya, health coach and founder of Vibe N’ Thrive. Research shows that even a short amount of meditation can boost pain tolerance and reduce pain-related anxiety—and, it could possibly alleviate the need for opioid pain medication.

21. Meditation helps you relax. Learning to simply relax and keep calm under pressure are huge mental and physical health benefits of meditation. Practicing mindfulness can reduce stress and lower blood pressure so you’ll feel more relaxed.



How do you start on your dreams? Some of you have been thinking, planing and dreaming of things for years. Some even study manifestation and go to self help courses but nothing really gets done. Many work for bosses and are task masters at a job but when it comes to their life and dreams and projects they cut themselves short.


I would like to share my story of myachademy. For years I wanted to create an online gym, before online gyms were a thing. I would tell people and they would put me down. Or I would feel my coding skills weren’t great. I would even search for programers and trade lessons with them, but none of this worked. It was very hard.


This platform is a dream come true. A place where people can learn, grow, and I can help them too. I have been putting it off for years. This would not have been possible.


The website platform was easy because,   I stoped everything that have been putting me away from it.  I saw the urgency of the moment.  I said this is the time.  I realized I have everything there.  I know what I wanted a subscription website  and a site that progressed people and where people could be commite, and also evolve with. Money was there, the time was there, my ideas were there for years.   And I went with it .  It was my life energy to express itself , I learned what I needed to , and it built upon each other.

We over plan, we overthink, we come up with strategy, and fantasy. We have every reason why something wont work, or something will. This all gets in the way.

Some people say just take action, or get off your butt and do something. This isn’t good enough if you are going though with your car break .


I leave this with you. Stop everything, feel the urgency , and go. You have the power in you


If your looking for help, look no farther then the end of your arm….

Tai Chi Benefits

The health benefits of tai chi

This gentle form of exercise can help maintain strength, flexibility, and balance, and could be the perfect activity for the rest of your life.

Published: May, 2009

Tai chi is often described as “meditation in motion,” but it might well be called “medication in motion.” There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. And you can get started even if you aren’t in top shape or the best of health.

In this low-impact, slow-motion exercise, you go without pausing through a series of motions named for animal actions — for example, “white crane spreads its wings” — or martial arts moves, such as “box both ears.” As you move, you breathe deeply and naturally, focusing your attention — as in some kinds of meditation — on your bodily sensations. Tai chi differs from other types of exercise in several respects. The movements are usually circular and never forced, the muscles are relaxed rather than tensed, the joints are not fully extended or bent, and connective tissues are not stretched. Tai chi can be easily adapted for anyone, from the most fit to people confined to wheelchairs or recovering from surgery.

How do you motivate yourself with something you don’t want to do .    Might be simple as what you should be doing but theres resistance , there is mental chatter.    There are many techniques some have used autosudgestion where you just are creating more emotion and yelling at that voice and hopefully you can get yourself to do it .

But even if you tell yourself to do something there may be argument, or a feeling.   You get into the brain by inserting a visual image of something you should be doing.  The voice can not rebel.

2: Step 2 : And then rehearse this image, close your eyes and replay it  see yourself in your minds eye going though the activity you are programing rehearsal. Enjoying .  And the beautiful gift of visualization is there is no voice to interrupt . That is where imagination is powerful l

3.  Step 3  Check.

               How much more resistance do you have to the activity.

4.  Repeat the cycle.   notice as you do this your body responds les to the resistance of not doing it .  as you have less resistance,   And when you think of doing the activity,  or command yourself to do it , it is very easy it is no resistance.

Try It today:   need to make a video ,  you are shy you don’t like moving things you are over thinking it,  and stuck in mental inertia, the body is saying no. you had the idea yesterday you should try , but you given other things what do you do?  Relax the body,  visualize the activity,  repeat the visualization a few times, vivid and with pleasure, and if you dont what what will happen.  Then repeat this image of you in process in 3rd person and also in 1st person.  Notice now the voice , and how body feels , it is less if it worked.  then repeat process till it just seems like a effortless activity.  You have just programed the seed of your mind.   Then you can even relax , its in your mind, when the time comes it will be there and your next energy action will be to do it.  effortlessly motivated.

The voice is a feedback mechanism. , if you are going out of your comfort routeen or path or habits that you set for yourself.   So put a new image in ,  see it , feel it in your body and consequences what people are saying, what people are doing

How do you get this level of consciousness, by transformative meditation. Where you learn how to be the watcher , of your body of your mind.

photographic memory

How to develop a better photographic memory

Developing photographic memory and refreshing yourself mentally

This also helps with recharging the mind, clearing, and getting you back to study refreshed .

Most will say take a break go for a walk, do yoga , often when i did this fun activity, i didn’t want to go study after or the motivation was even worse cause i wanted to continue to do something fun. So i started back at a state.  It helped if I restated my purposes, saw my motivations of why I was tourturing myself but that would not get me fully refreshed. I wanted to take a nap but I couldn’t sleep .  Then how about social media break, or viewing the internet. This is nice but i found it lead to procrastination, and also delaying study and when the timer was up, I wasnt refreshed.

The Answer:   Go lay on your bed, close your eyes,  and replay what you learned or did for the past hour. backwards.  do you remember the last problem. then how about the line above that,  or the room, replay the movie, in your head.   Often we play things forward, and that is how to wind up the mind, but how about winding down or back.  This is like clearing an etch e sketch and it serves double tasks, first you may notice you have instant recall, and photographic recall,   and this gets better with practice,  second, after the nice mental movie , you have used your imagination to give your thinking logical computer a break.

I came up with this when I was a kid we would watch movies, and if I couldn’t fall asleep i would just close my eyes and rewatch the movie in my head, scene by scene, sometimes I would go backwards, or remember the scene , then go forwards,  and I always had a favorite movie or show to watch, once the tv time was up.   Some say it was a way to hypnotize yourself before sleep.  I found I often would have a dream about the movie.  When I did this for study material, I know I was ready if I had a dream of it.


Times of change when needed most live steam 6pm :    It hasn’t ever been so urgent as now that people must become more aware of the inside world. There was a nice little story where the gods wanted to hide one of the most treasured treasures and didn’t know where to hide it. Some said put it in the ocean, and another on-top the highest mountain, the decision was to put it in man/woman. The quest to go inside yourself has never been more needed. Ive been teaching techniques for several years but have been kept it privately, with this change of events I am now on the upfront to help people become more aware of the inner world where even in isolation, change, and circumstance they can be at peace. Some people are really suffering and some people are quite the opposite it is very interesting. If you feel anyone needs help and are in isolation please feel free reach out to me as well. We are here to help each other 1 world. 

This Reflections: 

We live in a society that is conditioning us to really express what we like.  It seems we all like everything but inside we might not.  This exercise is will help you reflect on inside what you really like verses what society tells you to like.  Lets start with some basics: 

What do you like about your parents . What don’t you like?  

What do you like about your friend ?  What don'[t you like 


Here is an example : 

Mom:   I like she calm under pressure when people are furious 

              I like she is persistent  but             Don’t like : she’s stubborn 

Dad :    Is kind in service generous and in your favor if supports.                                    

             Don’t Like :  Usually questions everything you do  

              He’s cheep 

Take everything you like and try to apply it, and reject what you don’t want to be like.  You don’t need to justify it, or wish to change them, it’s not about them.   



Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
