At the gym you pump iron. Here you shed the weight of the world.
Whether you’ve practiced it for twenty minutes or twenty years, meditation has a positive effect on your well-being. And that’s not just conjecture – mindfulness actually strengthens the part of your brain that deals with anxiety and stress.
You have probably meditated before and not even realized it. Like when you listened to a song and just “zoned out” into the music. Or went for a run in the park and focused only on your next stride and the wind whipping around you. In these moments, your mind and body were synced up – both living in the present.
Like any skill (and meditation is a skill), it takes practice. Think of Current like a gym you’ll never sweat at. Once you’ve relaxed yourself into a state of heightened awareness, you might start to notice some amazing things happening.
