What is Meditation?
Meditation encourages you to develop concentration, clarity and emotional stability. As it focuses on the mind-body connection, it helps you stay positive, calm and focused. Meditation can be done in various different forms. You can find a quiet place where you can either sit up or lie down and focus on a combination of your breathing, an idea or a word. It helps you focus on mindfulness, awareness of present feelings, thoughts, and your physical sensations.
How it Helps
Meditation improves your inner peace, self-awareness, mental functioning, and helps you detach from thoughts and impulses, which can help reduce cravings and prevent relapse. It also lays a positive effect and reduces the levels of stress and anxiety which is of utmost importance in recovery. For example, you may use it to slow down your breathing and calm your nerves. It can help reduce the negative feelings that compel you to reach for substances. Meditation can also bring stillness to the chaos of addiction, and clear the mind.
